Get some speed up as you ride from Ponte Vedra Beach to St. Augustine on A1A. If you go all the way it’s about a 25-mile ride one way.

Road Bike A1A Experience

While many may choose a mountain bike or beach cruiser when biking Ponte Vedra Beach, if you’re a road biker, try a straight shot down A1A from Ponte Vedra Beach to St. Augustine. You will take in ocean views and the salt air for much of the ride and see many of the small residential areas that are located between these two cities.

You can depart from any number of parking areas but two to consider are Micklers Beach Landing and the North Parking Lot of the GTM. Once you’re on the road you need to be careful as most of A1A does not have designated bike lanes and the roadway can be narrow. You can be helpful to drivers by always riding single file, wearing bright clothing, riding during daylight hours and obeying all rules of the road.

If you ride from Micklers Beach Landing, it will be about a 17 mile ride to St. Augustine one way.

When you are biking, you can help ensure limited impacts to the surrounding areas by being a “Sustainable PVB Guest” – keep these recommendations in mind.

  • Use the water station at Mickler’s Beachfront Park to refill water bottles.
  • Make sure to share the road with other vehicles.
