Sarasota: Florida Chapter Weekly Ride - 50 miles / 275'

  • Sarasota Christian School (pkg. lot) 5415 Bahia Vista Street Sarasota, FL, 34232 United States (map)

Join us for our weekly Member* ride! Our route includes some of the BEST rural roads that the Sarasota area has to offer—low traffic volume, great scenery, and opportunity to “stretch your legs” (aka some ‘spirited” moments) on the bike!! And, of course, a mid-ride stop at the “CHICKEN SHACK” (Myakka City Grocery).

*Non-Members are WELCOME to come out for a "test" ride.

Note: This ride is intended to be NO DROP. However, Due to the wide-range of fitness and ability levels among cyclists, you should load the course onto your GPS device in case you become separated from the group (ahead OR behind!) Communication is the key!
