Video: Broward Motorsports Rec Ride, Key Largo to Alligator Reef Lighthouse


For many, the first full week of August is joyous one because it’s when the kids have to go back to school. For others, it’s just another blistering hot week during the height of summer. So whether you’re rejoicing at the thought of having the house back, or looking just to get out of the heat, possibly one of the most anticipated recreation rides in the nation is also scheduled to happen on Saturday, August 3rd: The Broward Motorsports Rec Ride.

Slated to begin at 10am, riders are invited to launch from either the Caribbean Club, Yacht Club Drive Marina or John Pennekamp on Key Largo. You’re asked to be present at least an hour and a half before launch time as the crowd is sure to cause a backup at the ramp. From there, the mass will migrate to Alligator Reef and to the Islamorada Sandbar for some relaxing and food.

Make sure to fuel up too, because from Islamorada, the group will be heading back to their respective launch sites around 5:30pm. It’s sure to be a ton of fun with literally hundreds of like-minded PWC enthusiasts all in a gorgeous exotic location. See the video and full description below:
