Bike/Walk Central Florida
This week’s happeningsSunday, Oct. 17, we’ll be meeting at the Racetrac on Aloma, between Forsyth and Tangerine, at 3 p.m., as volunteers to canvasse the neighborhood,educating residents on pedestrian safety and the importance of using crosswalks. As you may recall, this is the area where a young man was killed recently crossing midblock. The more people we have, the more ground we can cover. We should be finished by five. Come say hi and help save a life.Wednesday, Oct. 20, 6 p.m. – Come join Orange County Commissioner Linda Stewart in celebrating the groundbreaking of a NEW PAVED TRAIL in southeast Orange County. The event will be held at the future site of the Avalon Mailer Trailhead – on Mailer Road (Second Entrance to Avalon Park), just South of Innovation Way on Alafaya Trail. This is great news. Hope to see you there!

Unless specifically designated as a trail ride, our rides take place on public streets. Headlights and red rear flashers are required for night rides. Helmets are encouraged, and are required for children under 16.

We observe all traffic laws and traffic signals. Our rides are typically 10 to 15 miles, roundtrip, and average 10 miles and hour, a comfortable pace for most adults and teens. May be too fast for younger children and adults with health issues.

These rides are social in nature. For longer, more aggressive group rides, subscribe to Hal Downing’s group ride newsletter by emailing [email protected]

If you have a social ride you would like us to help promote, please email me at the address below.
