Welcome to another EBC Weekend Away: Paved Trail Rides Adventure.  We are headed to Winter Garden, Florida to ride beautiful paved trails the weekend of November 9 - 11.  Thank you Ruben Fuentes for organizing this weekend for us!


Please note:  This EBC Weekend Away Event is for EBC Members Only.  There is no cost to ride, don't delay, register now!


ABOUT THESE TRAILS: 

These trails are paved and are multi-use Trails. 

ALL TYPES OF BIKES ARE WELCOME, road, hybrid or mountain.


Multi-Use Trail Etiquette: These trails are multi-use trails, and at times pass through populated areas.  You will encounter pedestrian traffic, family and recreational riders, and perhaps, fast road cyclists.  As a cyclist, always yield to pedestrians.   Please be considerate of other trail users, signaling and vocalizing to other trail users as appropriate.  Please adjust your speed as necessary.  Always use caution when the trail is intersected by a street/road.


This ride is not a SAG-supported or leader-lead ride, rather, Ruben will be our host.  The m
ain peloton will ride at approximately 15-17 mph and since these are easy paved trail routes, others may just ride at a different pace if they so desire.
