The Clermont ride is BACK, but in a new location! We are currently seeking Ride Captains to lead this ride. Please use the contact form at the bottom of the page if you can help.
In preparation for the climbs and descents of those “hilly” rides we are leading a ride in Clermont, FL on alternating Sundays.
We meet at 8 am, at Suncreek Brewery, 790 West Minneola Ave, Clermont, FL. There is plenty of parking across the street, next to the public restrooms, which are very clean.
The route goes out the West Orange Trail to the new section on Hancock Road. Once we reach 561A we take to the road again, hitting the well known climbs – The Wall, Buck Hill and Sugarloaf. We then return back down the Hancock extension to the brewery, with some extra mileage options available on the way. It’s about 30 miles minimum.
It is a true No Drop ride. We will not leave anyone. We will circle back often to ride with riders choosing to ride slower. It’s practice, not a race! If someone wants to go on ahead that’s fine, as long as they are familiar with the route.
