Baldwin Bike Trail Ride

Sat 2/9, 9:00am, Baldwin Bike Trail Ride, Jacksonville: We will meet at the Imeson Road Trailhead at 9:00 a.m. for the 29 mile round trip bike ride. Any type of bicycle is suitable since the trail is flat and paved. If you choose not to do the entire ride, you can stop along the way; i.e., Camp Milton, and we will hook up on the return leg. However, we will stop at the end of Baldwin Trail for a short rest and snacks. Don't forget your water, snacks and suntan lotion. To get to the Imeson Road Trailhead, take Interstate 10 west to Exit 53 (new Exit 356) for Interstate 295. Head north on I-295 to Commonwealth Avenue (Exit 9). From Exit 9, head west on Commonwealth Avenue approximately 1 mile to Imeson Road.  Take a right on Imeson Road (heading north) and continue to the trailhead. Afterwards, we will go somewhere for lunch.

    WOW. Can't believe I did the whole thing--all 29 miles. My thighs are wondering why I did!!! It was a beautiful day with a great bunch of people who love to do things and be outdoors. Hard to find a bunch of people like that. Glad I joined. Mo

    Very nice trail although a little cold in the beginning. Great to see every one. Learned in need to get a road bike if I'm going to do this kind of distance. Thought I was gonna die!

    Wish I could make it but am nursing a bad ankle sprain.

    I will attempt to ride the whole way, then back (14.5miles each way), while trying to maintain at least 10MPH. Anyone else interested?

    February 8, 2013

  • Linda E.

    Sorry, y'all. I have to cancel as well. At this time, 29 miles of cycling would be detrimental to my left knee. 'Hope someone on wait list will step up and enjoy!

    I'm dropping out. I have a minor ding that prevents me from wearing my helmet. Let a waiting lister go.

  • Marta W.

    Hana, I can't pin down the time. Considering the Bike Ride, Stop at Camp Milton and Lunch, I'd guess maybe 2 or 3. Someone who has been on the Trail since I have might often a better estimate.

    Note to All: To secure your bike, when we stop at Camp Milton, you may want to bring a bike lock.

      I ridden that trail about 15 K-Billion times And I can tell you at the speed the group will ride (about 11mph average) it will take about 2hr, 40min.

      February 7, 2013

    • Marta W.

      Thanks Al!

    Marta, do u have a sense of how long the ride and re-enactment stop will be? Trying to plan the rest of my day...thanks!

    February 7, 2013

  • Marta W.

    Oh, and, on our return trip down the trail from the Baldwin end, we will stop at Camp Milton to check out the re-enactment which is this weekend. The troops stopped at Camp Milton on their way to Olustee, (I think.)

    February 6, 2013

  • Marta W.

    Look forward to seeing all Saturday a.m. For those who are not members, be sure to print the guest waiver and have it completed. I do not have a printer; so, there will be no extra waivers available. Afterwards, we will go to a nearby BBQ place for lunch.

      Vic, I did not realize that this was the weekend for the re-enactment at Camp Milton; I'm glad you brought it to my attention. Guess we should include it -- have you ever been for the re-enactment?
