Happy Fall, Y’all!

Bike Florida is busy gearing up for their fall cycling season!

We are offering a variety of go-at-your-own-pace cycling events (photos link to events) and would love to see you ride with!


We are excited for next weekend’s (October 15th & 16th) 35/50 ride through the beautiful horse & river country that is Dunnellon and Marion County. It’s a two day event: you choose your mileage each day (35 or 50 miles). You can choose to travel to ride both days if you are local or take advantage of our hotel connections in the Dunnellon area. In between the two days of riding, treat yourself the Two Rivers Music Festival & Food Truck Rally on Saturday evening from 5pm-10pm. The rides are fully supported with SAG and GPS turn by turn instructions and cue sheets. We hope to make this an annual event!

The Black Diamond Invitational Car Show & Cycling Event is an easy morning 1-2 hour cruise through the beautiful tree lined neighborhood bordering the Black Diamond Ranch golf course. It’s a free ride with breakfast snacks and coffee before we set off and a car show ($5 admission – proceeds going to charity) of classic cars on the 2nd hole of the golf course. A purely fun and social ride brought to you by the Citrus Hills Cycling Club and Bike Florida. We hope to make this an annual event!

Groveland Metric Century will be held on Friday, November 11th – Veteran’s Day (This ride was rescheduled due to Hurricane Ian). 62 miles through the City of Groveland’s farmlands and surrounding towns. There will be food trucks there to greet you for lunch when you return from your ride. Later that day, join the festivities at Groveland’s Second Friday Market at Lake David Park to honor our Veterans and the many sacrifices they have made for our country.
