    Favorite rides/rail trails in central Florida?

    I will be visiting relatives in the Sanford/Lake Mary area at the end of January. It seems there are some nice rail trails in the area and I would love to explore a couple of them. My relatives know of them, but since they don't ride, they're not too familiar with them. Doesn't have to be trails - quiet and pretty roads are good too.

    Thanks for any suggestions, and if anyone would like to join me on a leisurely ride the last week in January, you're welcome to join!

    I am spending winter in Florida and spent some time looking for paved bike paths. This one runs through Lake Mary, I believe: http://www.traillink.com/trail/cross...ole-trail.aspx

    Too bad you aren't closer to Clearwater. I am there for January and am without a car. Otherwise I'd drive over for a ride.

    I just moved to Colorado from Winter Park, which is about 10 miles south(I miss it there!- definitely go check out Park Ave, College Park, Thornton Park,Hannibal Square,etc.- great restaurants to be found and gorgeous houses and streets around).

    I would check out

    Feel free to PM with any questions along with if you are going to have a road bike and want advice on some group rides or other nice roads to ride oor even where to rent a bike from.

    Thank you for the replies. goldfinch: I saw your post about the west coast rides and almost changed my travel plans to go there, instead Orlando is the only Florida airport I can get to non-stop from here so it's just easy for a long weekend.

    Emily- I may pm you if I need more info, thanks. It's only for a day or two, so I should be set with my basic research. I appreciate the links.
