We have been stressed out and need to get out and have some fun after Irma! Due to high water, we can't do a water activity like kayak (check out the flooding at Wekiva Island (www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2017/09/13/hurricane-irma-completely-flooded-wekiva-island ) so we will go for a bike ride instead. Yes, it is hot but our plans are to start early, ride to Winter Gardens, have something cold to drink and something to eat. On the way back, we will stop at the splash park in front of city hall and cool off.

Winter Gardenis a prime example of how a well-maintained rail-trail can transform an "old Florida" downtown. As the focal point for the renaissance of this old Florida town, the bike trailhas completelyrevitalizeddowntown Winter Garden, which now features at least two bike shops, several restaurants, and a small but worthwhilehistory museum. The newWinter Garden City Hallfronts the trail and features a bicycle-art sculpture.


Total, this will be about 22 miles of riding. We might find some down trees but we expect the trail to be open by the weekend.

Meet at 8:00am in Apopka in the park:111 S. Forest Ave., Apopka, FL

Leader: Mary-Slater and Ron[masked] [masked]


How to find us:Look for Mary-Slater's red Honda with bike rack
