Morning Ride to Lucky Strike

Old Northern Highway, Belize

Lucky Strike is the name of a quaint little village in Belize. It is located at mile 30½ in the Belize district on the Old Northern Highway, about 2 miles from the Maya Site of Altun Ha and approximately 11½ miles through the Old Northern Highway from it’s junction with the Philip Goldson Highway at Sand Hill. The first 12 miles of the Old Northern Highway from its junction with the Philip Goldson Highway at Sand Hill was recently paved with hot mix asphalt, which gives the road a smooth surface that is perfect for roadies. While there are no major hills to climb, the road is not pancake flat either as it snakes and waves through the country side for an enjoyable ride. The rest of the road from Lucky Strike to Maskall village and onward to Maruba Resort Jungle Spa and to where it eventually re-connects with the Phillip Goldson Highway further north in Carmelita Village in the Orange Walk district, narrows to the original old patched-up asphalt pavement with several unpaved breaks that is not suited for road bikes or bikes with skinny wheels and tires.
