North Palm Beach Waterfront Being Transformed into World-Class Cycling Destination

As the residents of Water Club in North Palm Beach prepare to move into the neighborhood in the coming months, they might just want to bring their bicycles. Although the community is overflowing with resort-style amenities, cycling has become a popular way to stay in shape and enjoy the incredible weather in South Florida. Palm Beach Gardens and North Palm Beach have long been a favorite for cyclists, but those venturing to the north have had some challenges along the way. But not for long.

Long known for its beautiful beaches, amazing boating, boutique shopping, and a myriad of dining and golf options, three new multi-million dollar projects are gaining attention from cycling enthusiasts from around South Florida.

For cyclists in the know, one of the most popular and picturesque routes in North Palm Beach starts near the Juno Beach Pier and heads north to Jupiter Island along A1A. The ride overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and past Carlin Park has always been great until you get to Jupiter Beach Road. Riders then either took their chances on the sides A1A or pedaled on the bumpy sidewalk to get to the Martin County line on U.S. 1. Here's a look at how that's about to change:

Jupiter is spending $8 million to add bicycle lanes and make other improvements to A1A from Jupiter Beach Road north to the bridge on U.S. 1. Lanes have been added to both sides of the roadway on the three-quarter-mile stretch.

Next, plans are underway to replace the US 1 bridge over the Loxahatchee River, just north of Burt Reynolds Park. Now, bicycle riders either gingerly walk their bikes or pedal across on the side of the road as the vehicles fly by a few feet away. Some bike riders use the narrow sidewalk while others cautiously use the median.

The estimated $80 million plan includes bicycle lanes on both sides of the bridge. Not only that, there will be a 20-inch-wide buffer lane between the bicycle lane and traffic. The exact cost, start date and height of the new bridge has not been determined.

And finally, Tequesta is building bicycle lanes from the U.S. 1 bridge north to the Martin County line. The year-long job to reduce U.S. 1 to four lanes from six lanes - along with new lighting, landscaping and sidewalks - is expected to start next fall on the two-mile stretch.
