Sanibel Bike Club Rides Withlacoochee Trail in Inverness

provided to The Santiva Chronicle

On April 17 and 18, the Sanibel Bike Club traveled to Inverness for an off-island ride. Members rode the Withlacoochee State Trail and enjoyed the nicely paved path and beautiful overhead canopy of oaks and Spanish moss. The Withlacoochee Trail is the longest paved rail trail in Florida coming in at a total of 46 miles. Groups rode either 40 or 62 miles on Saturday and 20 to 60 miles on Sunday. One group rode to the start of the trail at the Owensboro Junction Trailhead. It was a great weekend trip where members enjoyed being together for cycling, fun meals and exploring the nearby areas of Homosassa and Crystal River. A fun time was had by all.

The Sanibel Bike Club is a group of cycling enthusiasts at all levels of ability. The club always welcomes new members to share its on- and off-island rides and its monthly potlucks.  Detailed information about the Club and how to join is available at Come join us!
