Save the date for Bike/Walk Central Florida’s (BWCF) annual fundraiser, the 6th Annual Bike 5 Cities Ride (B5C). This fall, the event returns on Saturday, October 29, 2022, to ride out the Florida Department of Transportation’s Mobility Week. B5C participants will roll through the cities of Orlando, Winter Park, Maitland, Casselberry, and the town of Eatonville.
More details coming soon on our Family-Friendly ride. While participants of the Family-Friendly ride won’t venture quite as far, it’s bound to be twice the fun! Regardless of the route you choose, the B5C event shows riders of all ages and abilities where they can comfortably ride on urban roads, shared-use paths, and trails in Central Florida.
REGISTRATION for Bike 5 Cities will open later this summer. Join our email list to be the first to know when registration opens: http://eepurl.com/hwIaGj
