Southwest Fl checking in.
Hey guys, just moved from the middle of Seattle to Sanford/Lake Mary, and I am damn depressed. I used to live on my bike, and now, its always driving wherever I go. Are any of you out here, or know of any group rides? I honestly dont care what kind; I do it all. road, mountain, bmx, trials. I just want to find some people to ride with and talk bikes.
Altamonte Springs, checking in. Next week I will be picking up my first bike in 15+ years. Ordered a Trek 8.4 DS.
http://floridafreewheelers.com/ffw/, but there are others that are easy enough to find with a quick google search. Not sure what group it is, but almost every Saturday morning that I'm out that way, I see a rather large group on S.R. 434 & Tuskawilla Road in Winter Springs. I plan on joining the Florida Freewheelers once I pick up my bike and get comfortable on it.

New guy from North Tampa here :-)
I'll be heading down to Deland/Orlando for a few days, and I'll be bringing my bike with me. Is there any decent riding in the area?
I'm looking forward to getting away from this miserable georgia weather!
Here's a link on Orange Cycle's website. Probably the best shop in Orlando.

Maybe others will post some more trail info.
Check the Florida freewheelers web site Lots of good rides listed
Jacksonville checking in. I live right on the rail trail and can be seen there every Sunday afternoon!
Glad to hear it.
Hey everyone! Inverness, FL checking in! I'm a noob to road cycling (1 week in!). Live around the corner from the Withlacoochee Trail, so far been riding daily 10+ miles at about 17 mph avg, thoroughly enjoying it!
Welcome. Nice bike. Got pics?
I haven't taken any pics of the bike yet, but I will tonight! I was actually just changing my tube, and was a little surprised the old front/rear tubes were 650 in a 700 tire. I didn't realize they were interchangeable.
Heh, that makes sense then! I have no idea why the previous owner put them in there... I picked up some conti 700 20-25's @ 42mm. Is there any reason to get long vs short valve stems? My bike has the stock Alex Race 28's with stock Conti ultra sport tires. Thanks!
Ultra Sport tires is what my Raleigh had when I bought it in 1999. Those tires offer no flat protection, just a comfortable ride.
They probably stock the longer valve stem to accommodate almost everyone. Both my bikes have 45mm? stems. I like it because there's plenty of stem for the pump head to grip when I'm inflating my tires.
