About the event

Tour Info

Enjoy seven relaxing days of warm weather, sunshine, good food, and pedaling the quiet car-free Coast to Coast Trail from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean!

Long before Disney and Universal arrived, people came to Florida for its natural beauty, warm sunny winters, beaches, and a mish mash of funky tourist stops. Florida produces 70% of the U.S. citrus crop and you’ll enjoy pedaling along quiet groves covered with the little white blossoms that will become oranges, grapefruit and tangerines. There’s something magical about riding along and taking in air filled with the sweet scent of orange blossoms, and you’ll get a chance to experience that wonder. Cycle across a Florida of fishing villages, mermaids, and natural springs. Pedal across the state and experience a mix of that Old Florida and modern Florida famous for its prominent role in space exploration and theme parks. Our tour ends on the shores of Cape Canaveral where you’ll have time to explore the history, people and future of space exploration as we tour Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center!
