Event Details

GET INSPIRED!! May is National Bike Month - Get out and ride!

May is Bike Month

Make plans to "Bike and Barbecue" with Hector Picard, the 1st Double Arm Amputee 5x Ironman Finisher. We will meet at Lake Mills Park, Chuluota at 8:30 a.m. for a 22 mile ride with Hector, (or one of several shorter routes.) After the ride, we will gather back up at the park. After Hector shares his story with the group, we'll have a picnic. This will be a social ride and the routes and pace groups will be posted before the ride. 

 So just why will Hector Picard inspire you? Watch:

Riding with us and Hector's inspirational story is free, but we're asking for a donation to cover the cost of picnic food and beverage.

We'll have four routes and speeds:

  • Ride with Hector to Fort Christmas full loop route about 22 mies at a 16-20 mph average pace. ("B" rider - Orange)
    Lake Mills - Ft. Christmas Loop 22 mi.
  • Bike clubs and riders that want a longer training ride are encouraged to create their own start point earlier and plan ride to arrive at Lake Mills Park between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. and meet up at  there for additional ride.
  • A Fort Christmas and return route, about 18 miles at 12-15 mph pace. ("C" rider - Yellow)
