I live in Colorado and have family in Ocala.
We will be going to visit them in July and I will be in my training for the Tour De Cure here in Colorado and I do not want to miss any days of my training.
So I have a few questions
1) Where can I rent a road bike?
2) Where are the best places to ride?
The best areas to ride are north/northwest of town and southeast of town. I've posted a number of routes on mapmyride.com. Just look up Ocala. They all start from the Baseline trailhead on the east side of town.
Regarding the road bike rental, check with the Santos bike shop. I know they rent MTBs, so possibly they'll be able to set you up with a road bike. BTW, MTB is dominant in Ocala. check out OMBA.org
