      FAQ's
      Is this bike ride suitable for a beginner?
      Participants should be used to physical activities of at least 4 hours in duration. Bikers should have experience riding on trails and have the bike skills beyond that of a beginner.

      What happens if I get a flat tire?
      This is a self-supported ride. We will not have bike technicians on the ride and cyclists are responsible for their own gear (including spare tubes) and changing flat tires. If something does happen to your bike you will need to walk it back to the parking lot unless it is an emergency 911 situation.

      Do you rent bikes? Can I rent them at the trail?
      We do not rent bikes.

      What should I wear?
      Wear clothes that you have biked in before. If you do not have cycling shoes that clip-in, please make sure that you wear closed-toed shoes. A helmet is required for safety.

      Will there be a water stop?
      Participants in the ride must bring their own water and snacks and transport those items either in a pack on their back or somewhere on their bike. Our leaders are unable to carry items for you. Because the trail is primitive, there are no restrooms or water fountains on the trail.

      Is this ride suitable for children?
      Due to the distance and time involved, this is an adults-only program.

      Can I bring my dog?
      This is not a dog-friendly event, unless the dog is a service animal.

      Will we see alligators?
      Yes. But don't worry, they've never stolen a bike.
