49 mile B ride*. Start at 8:00am, to provide for travel time AND avoid some of the midday heat.
Start/end at Minneloa Inn, 508 S. Main Avenue, Minneola, FL.
Lunch to follow ride at Minneola Tiki Bar (same location), looking out over Lake Minneola.
These are the hills you’ve been looking for: bring your climbing legs and gears.
* Primary route of 49 miles features hills and distance, but there are a couple places along this route to shorten your ride and return to the Tiki Bar.
Rest/refuel at Sugarloaf Summit (mile 20.0), and Sunoco convenience store in Montverde (mile 34.4).
For those of you that might be feeling 49 miles of hills is too much, but still want to have fun in Minneola, you can instead take a 15-mile ride around Lakes Minneola and Minnehaha. Starts & ends at Minneola Lakes Inn & Tiki Bar, same location as the 50-miler.
If you are feeling really chipper, you can go around twice !
