Every experience is better when done with others. If you like to ride your road bike with a group, Central Florida has many different bike rides for you to join. The groups below are not associated with The Ride Xperience, so please be sure to confirm their schedules on their website or social media. Winter Garden Wheel Works Saturday Road Bike Ride Winter Garden is a cycling gem, and every Saturday morning there is a group that leaves from Wheel Works Bike Shop. Usually, the group is big with cyclists with different experience levels, but after a few warmup miles as the speed picks up, the group splits in two categories, Group A (around 22+ mph), and Group B (between 18 to 20 mph). The route varies from week to week, but usually, it's a 40 to 60-mile ride. Check their schedule at Winter Garden Wheel Facebook page.
Winter Park Independent Group Ride Close to Downtown Orlando, a large group of local cyclists get together for a nice training ride every Saturday morning. The Ride starts with three different groups: Group A (24+ mph) with options of a 50 or 60-mile ride. Group B (18 to 24 mph) riding around 50 miles. Group C (up to 18 mph) riding about 40-miles. The group leaves every Saturday at 7:30 am from the Parking Lot at 1905 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL. Riders of Windermere (Windermere Roadies) Riders of Windermere used to be called "Windermere Roadies" and is an independent group of riders that get together to ride Wednesday and Thursday evenings and early mornings on the weekends.
