  • Bike 5 Cities on May 6, 2017

Let's join in with Bike/Walk Central Florida's Bike 5 Cities event.  LeeAnne will be leading this event and will ride the whole 28 miles.  This is a ride at your own pace event and there are several starting points to join the pack if you're interested in a shorter adventure.

Helmets are required and you must register at the Bike/Walk Central Florida site.

When you RSVP on our Meetup page, please indicate where you plan to start your ride so everyone can gather at the designated starting point and ride together with your blue Orlando Ski Club Bandanas (or racing bands) on so you can easily spot each other.  If you don't have one from your last ski trip, let us know.

LeeAnne's email

If you have tried to register on the BWCF website and it indicates the registration is full, please note (from the FAQ’s):

Q: Can I register on the day of the ride?

A: We won’t turn anyone away, but you’ll miss out on a few perks that you would get from registering beforehand (free t-shirts!). Plus it helps us to have enough refreshments for all.

So, if you missed out on registering on the BWCF site, you are still welcome to attend, but please plan on bringing your own water and snacks for the ride.  Make sure you RSVP on MeetUp and indicate your starting point so our OSC group will know where to connect with you!  So far, most everyone is meeting at Mead Gardens for the ride start at 8 a.m.  I will be there by 7:30 a.m. J

Discover Comfortable Riding Routes on ‘Bike 5 Cities’

Bike/Walk Central Florida encourages Central Floridians to ride bikes, but we also realize that everyone may not be aware of comfortable riding routes. That’s why we’re teaming up with Healthy Central Florida on May 6 for “Bike 5 Cities,” a guided family-friendly ride-along on scenic bike trails and slow-speed residential streets. This free bike event exposes riders of all ages to paved routes and trails in Winter ParkOrlandoCasselberryMaitland and Eatonville, allowing them to ride as far as they want and at their own pace. Ride the entire 28-mile loop or join the fun at one of four neighborhood riding sites that will offer activities for children, and snacks and refreshments for all participants. First 100 participants to register will receive a free t-shirt!

Aid stations will be located along the route, and Ride Ambassadors will provide assistance while acting as escorts. Bike helmets are mandatory.
