Join the Good Neighbor Bike Trail Ride October 20

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on October 6, 2019

Join the Brooksville Vision Foundation for the 2nd Annual Good Neighbor Trail Bike Ride, part of the 220-mile Coast to Coast Trail! The 2019 Inaugural Ride is Sunday, October 20. Walk-up registration and check-in for pre-registered participants is from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM.

This is a fundraising ride to benefit the Brooksville Mainstreet Program. Our vision is “BROOKSVILLE AS A THRIVING URBAN CORE”.

The 2nd Annual Good Neighbor Trail Bike Ride begins and ends at the Historic Brooksville Train Depot located at 70 Russell Street, in Brooksville, Florida.

The Good Neighbor Trail is a 10-mile stretch of paved trail that connects to the Withlacoochee State Trail, a paved, 46-mile long converted railroad track. Participants can determine their own ride distance. We are offering a 22-mile ride, a 35-mile ride, a 65-mile “Half Century” ride, and a 100-mile “Century” ride that will take riders up into Citrus County on the Withlacoochee and return to the start/finish at the Train Depot.

All routes are exclusively on paved rail trails.

The day begins with a Continental Breakfast from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM at the Train Depot Trailhead. Along the trail, we will have four SAG Stops with water, sports drinks, and food.

Restrooms will be available at all SAG Stops. A free catered lunch will be provided between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM at Coney Island. All pre-registered riders as of 3:45 PM, October 1st, will receive a T-Shirt.
