Transportation Information for Riders

Where do I leave my car in Miami during the ride?

MorningStar (our starting location) has graciously allowed our participants to leave their personal vehicles at their facility until Sunday November 16th. If you believe you will be staying longer in Key West we recommend you make arrangements with the hotel you are staying at in Miami to leave your car there. Please make sure they know so that they can placard it and not tow it as a “delinquent” vehicle. 

Post-Ride Transportation

Transportation from Key West has a been CLOSED. You will be responsible for getting yourself and your bike from Key West.


Transportation Information for Crew Members

Personal Vehicles and Transportation on The SMART Ride

We love cars, we think they are efficient and so helpful, but on The SMART Ride limiting the number of vehicles that are on the road and in our pit stops and at the hotel is a goal. Why you ask?

  • Our rest stops are not very large
  • Keeping as much traffic out of these stops helps prevent the chances of cars accidentally converging with bicyclescar door
  • Car doors are dangerous
  • Accidentally backing up and running over a parked bike or bicyclist

Each team captain is asked to check with their crew and minimize the vehicles that are on the ride. Please work with us on this safety issue. If you do have a vehicle that is approved for the event, you will receive an “official” signage indicating where you will be allowed to use the vehicle and where it will be permuted on the side. If you are on the route with your vehicle we asked that you call dispatch for approval to stop at a pit stop prior to entering, if the pit stop is full or crowded you may be asked to continue on.
