The best Cross Country Bike Riding anywhere in south Florida. This course can be extremely challenging but fun, safe and easy to ride.
Several bike types and tires can be used successfully. Of course that all depends on lungs and legs and how you feel that day. The ground varies throughout and it is an odyssey of pathways and right of ways.

The 52 miles is a very tough course physically should not be attempted by the unprepared. If you are a first timer out here, expect to take it easy and follow the map and be flexible.
