Frame Doctor

If you cracked that expensive carbon fiber frame, your only hope used to be sending it out west to be repaired.  Now, you can think about Joey Robison (http://framedoctor911.com/fdmain.htm) in Seminole County.  Check out the website and see examples of Joey’s work – he’s also one heck of a painter.  If your frame is nicked, scratched, dinged, bent or broken, have Joey look at it.  Contact him at [email protected] or call 321 388 8034.

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 an 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 prefer a slow ride bike group, try the Backpack Bikers, on Saturdays at 11 am outside by the bike rack at the 24-hour fitness club by Super Target near the corner of Orange Avenue and Michgan Street in the Crystal Lake Subdivision.  Contact Cynthia Morrison at cmorrison0414@gmail.com .

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