A new blog has been set up for cycling routes on Grand Bahama Island by Walter Strauss. If you are a cycling enthusiast or wish to become one, this helpful blog will give you some routes to get started.

The blog, www.GrandBahamaBikeRoutes.blogspot.com offers 5 maps of routes to begin your cycling sightseeing adventures. Although most routes have no bike signage you can print the maps and follow along.

Strauss says, "Grand Bahama is one of the nicest places to bike.....if you stay off the main roads! Fortunately there are some great "through the neighborhood routes" that can get you from downtown to some great destinations like Banana Bay, Garden of the Groves, Barbary Beach, Dover Sound. All of these routes were discovered using Google Maps. The street maps of the island are not reliable as many of the streets on the maps don't exist but the Google satellite image is pretty clear.

The big map prints out pretty small but can give you an overall of where you are headed. The "route chunks" can be printed out with good detail. Enjoy and feel free to add new routes to places you bike to.

We have this Freeport to Casurina Bridge Route extended to Dover Sound Observatory Hill as well as to Barbary Beach and will post them soon."
