    Welcome from west central Florida (near the Withlacoochee Trail ). There are a few members in your area. Keep checking here. If you're looking for group rides ask at some of the bike shops near you.

    There's a nice ride my group makes around the Deland area called Picket Fences. I'm on the eastern side of Lake County

    I have done a fair amount of pedaling in western Volusia, from SR40 at the St. Johns river thru Emporia, down CR3 to (and all around) DeLand,
    up CR3 thru Piersen and further north up US17, out CR305 and 304 to Colby's Corner, down SR15 back to DeLand, etc.
    Loads of wide open spaces, fern farms, dairy farms, etc. around there.
    Great roads,too.
    There probably still is the Wednesday evening ride from the Drop Zone at the DeLand airport. Good group for all levels of ability.

    Have fun !

    Thanks. I ride mostly on paved trails (Spring to Spring and East Central Regional) with some light off road. I can't keep up with the road bikes. I ride a hybrid for fun/fitness. I think I might plan a ride around Lake Monroe.

    The north side of Lake Monroe is nice, but most other sides require you to ride on busy roads.
    415 has been under construction since forever, and is not pleasant.
    Riding thru Sanford is very nice, but be careful if you ride 17-92 along the south shore.
    Great shoulder but fast-paced traffic.
    Good luck !!!

    I've ridden the Spring to Spring trail a couple of times, the Debary end with the boardwalk section is my favorite. Like Ronno6 said, 17-92 can be nerve racking, and the bridge on 415 is downright hairy. Once the construction is finished on 415, it will be a nice ride.

    If you get over to east side of county, there's a nice ride called the loop in Ormond beach. Park east side of Granada bridge, ride along John Anderson heading north, and take every left turn you come to (sans parks and neighborhoods)[to end up back at Granada bridge 26 or so miles later]. Nice canopied wetlands ride riverside part.

    A nice trail in Bunnell [flagler co] that runs to the coast [pretty much]...Lehigh Trail. Also, A1A is of the more picturesque rides around...but shoulder bike path only exists 'south', so I only ride south myself. Try and catch a nor'easter wind on A1A and you'll set your PR's in some fantastic swift rides.

    I use to do those rides along with the SR 40/Nova Rd to St Johns river n back. The loop ride was my favorite especially the Tomoka park section.
