We decided last night that we would load the bikes in the car and ride Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach this morning. The weather was going to be perfect again for a ride – 70 degrees and sunny with no wind!!
We left the house at 6 am and drove to the “old” Air Force Base (now Market Commons) and parked the car in Warbird Park – a small park with a few military planes on display.
The sun was just coming up as we crossed US 17 and headed north on Ocean Boulevard.
The Blvd has bike lanes about 5 miles of the 10-mile strand.
We planned to ride to the end of Ocean Blvd and then reverse our course and come back. That’s exactly what we did. The view for the most part is hotel after hotel, condo after condo, with beach stores, pancake houses and amusement parks sprinkled throughout.
Occasionally, we got a good view of the ocean and it looked like a lake today with virtually no waves.
