Friday Bike Rides??

In addition to our Wednesday bike rides at various locations this Winter, let’s see if we can also do a Friday afternoon ride most Fridays at Lake Beresford Park in Deland. We’ll see how it goes, but here is the first outing.

Casual Bike Ride – Friday, December 15, 2017, 3-5 pm
Join us for an 8-15 mile casual ride at Lake Beresford Park, 2100 Fatio Road, Deland, Florida and heading toward Blue Springs on one of the Spring-to-Spring trail routes. It is a paved, off-road trail. We will first do the 2 mile loop trail to be sure everyone is on board with equipment and conditioning. We run 8-10 miles per hour (D-C Class- no one left behind!) Then we will head for Blue Springs for about 2.8 miles. Expect a few very moderate hills. (Florida ain’t ALL flat.) Then we will cover the new extension for as far as the group wants. A little rest and back to Beresford Park. A total of about 8-15 miles depending on the group. Helmets and water recommended. Adults only. Meet at Roger’s Jeep. There are restrooms and water at Beresford Park. May see a variety of wildlife along the way. Heavy rain or lightning cancels.
Would appreciate a note that you will join us.
Thanks,
Roger

Central Florida Eco-Tours

We have two standard tours running this year. They are listed below. We can also design specialty tours for you or your group to cover other areas of Central Florida outdoors. On all of our tours, your safety is of the utmost importance. Your guide has years of experience in the Florida outdoors. Florida Eco-tours run December through April, afternoons and evenings.

An experienced tour guide will lead you on a leisurely 1 ½ mile walking tour where you will see a wide variety of Florida birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles. Your guide will be equipped with a 60-power scope and tripod so you will see all the critters up close and personal, while keeping a safe distance. We recommend taking the tour the during last 3 hours of daylight for the best chance to see the most wildlife.
