We will be biking at the Santos Trailhead (formerly known as the Cross Florida Barge Canal Trail), located in Belleview, Florida. Santos Park is a biking park like no other. The single and double tracks are divided into three difficulty levels:
Does that sound familiar to you skiers/riders?
The park has many rated loops with names, just like any slope in a ski resort. There are many areas with changes in elevation throughout the park. We could call them "Florida Mountains".
We will leave Friday morning. The bike shop will be open at 9 am to rent the bikes. There will be a cost for bicycle rental (see details below). Depending on the number of interested persons, you may be asked to provide your own car to the route start, so please be sure to indicate in the event registration if you are willing to drive in case we need you.

Since opening its slopes for the first time on Dec. 16, 1961, the resort has paved the way for innovation, access and high alpine adventure across its Five Peaks, from being on the forefront of new lift technology and installing the world’s first high-speed quad; to being the first major Colorado resort to welcome snowboarders in 1984; to providing unrivaled access to signature high alpine terrain with the introduction of the T-Bar, the Imperial Express, and the opening of Peak 6 in 2013. While the resort has continued to grow and evolve over the decades with new lifts, new peaks, new experiences and beyond, guests can still find the same energy, sense of adventure and spirit of community that draws people in from near and far to Breck. With nearly 3,000 acres, North America’s highest chairlift and some of the country’s best High Alpine terrain, Breckenridge, affectionately known as ‘Breck’ to locals and visitors alike, is a historic mining town and vibrant mountain community that boasts a serious dose of high alpine adventure, natural beauty and ski town charm.

Bill Healy, a former Army 10th Mountain Division member, founded Mt. Bachelor Ski Area (then known as Bachelor Butte ski area) December 19, 1958, with a rope tow and a single lift. Mt. Bachelor has since grown to be the 6th largest ski resort in the U.S. The resort, located on the Eastern side of the Cascades, boasts a wide variety of terrain with over 4,300 acres of lift accessible terrain, allowing guests to ski or ride 360 degrees off the summit, hike the adjoining cinder cone for a well-earned run down, or ski the trees off the western bowls to find that great cache of powder. Add to that the incredible town of Bend, with the most breweries per capita in the state of Oregon plus distilleries, wineries, restaurants and shopping, and you have the perfect combination for an amazing ski vacation!
