SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16th to FEBRUARY 23rd, 2013
TORONTO / MONTREAL TO ORLANDO
If you would like to spend a week of great cycling in Florida during the cold Canadian winter for an affordable price, read on. If you can bike 80 to 100kms on any ride this is for you. Pedal daily routes in Lake, Orange, Seminole, Sumter and Brevard Counties. Cycle at 20-24 kp/h in rural areas used by Orlando bike clubs. The ride in Brevard will be along the Atlantic intracoastal and enjoy an ocean dip after the ride. We will bike Florida’s Sugarloaf Mountain at 100 metres with a stunning view of Lake Apopka. We bike through many orange groves, along lakes with alligators, ibises, herons, pelicans and snowy egrets. One ride takes us along West Orange Trail, a 50km converted rail trail that meanders through Florida oak tree woods. Off bike excursions could include the Dade Battlefield State Historic Center, Mt. Dora, a charming town famous for antiques, Orlando for dining, shopping and downtown night life.
We will stay at a lovely 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom private rental residence with private outdoor pool, modern furnishings and appliances
