Spring to the Springs Family Ride and Trail Celebration



  • Instructor St Johns River-to-Sea Loop

Join the St Johns River-to-Sea Loop Alliance for a special scenic ride that includes 3 of the beautiful springs on the St Johns River-to-Sea Loop and Lake Monroe Park on beautiful Lake Monroe. Not a race - a fun, family-oriented ride with prizes & special activities. There are options for varying lengths from 8 to 50 miles. All options include refreshments at Comfort Stations, and BBQ, games, fun and prizes at Blue Spring State Park. Longer rides extend to Gemini Springs Park, Lake Monroe Park, and Green Spring Park. This is an all-trail ride except for a 4 mi interim route in DeBary on mostly backroads with a stop-light crossing of Highway 17 at Benson Junction. Children under 12 must stay on the paved trail. For those wishing a longer, unsupported trail ride, the current trail ends at Guise Road east of Osteen making a 50 mile ride. Riders wishing to ride unsupported should plan on leaving at 9:00 AM in order to be back in time for the BBQ. Pre-registration is required. Riders who arrive at Lake Beresford Park without tickets must pay cash with a $5 late fee. Riders should plan to arrive at least one-half hour before their departure time.
