Marion County is generally composed of rolling hills, some high and some low. Popular cycling areas include the Ocala National Forest and the rolling green fields of horse farms with varying road surfaces from smooth asphalt to rough chip seal.

Every group ride has to have a degree of compromise. One person’s hammerfest is another person’s recovery ride. Communication is absolutely critical to the success of all group rides. We have Ride Leaders who are there to try to maintain the quality of the ride but the best way to keep us all at our best is when we all communicate best ride practices. So if you see someone riding inappropriately i.e. overlapping wheels, surging off the front we all should say something. Be polite but make it known that that was not proper.
