Bike Orlando

Back to Basics on a Bicycle with Bike Orlando

Do you remember the freedom you found when you first learned to ride a bike as a kid? Nothing’s changed. Bikes are still as much fun as they used to be, and Orlando is full of trails to explore!

Whether you are looking to get some exercise, want to get outside and enjoy the day with your family, or are an avid cyclist looking for a designated bike path to ride or a trail connecting a couple of road routes, the Orlando trail system’s got you covered.

Take It Easy

Many of the bike trails in Orlando range from 2 to 7 miles, perfect for a leisurely ride with kids or a workout ride if you only have up to an hour.

If you want to see some water while you’re riding, check out one of these trails:

Lake Baldwin Trail: a 2.5-mile paved trail circling Lake Baldwin and passing through Fleet People’s Park.

Lake Apopka Loop Trail: currently a 4-mile gravel trail along a section of Lake Apopka. There are plans to connect the trail to a 9-mile stretch of levee trails, as well as to the South Lake and West Orange Trails in order to finish the loop around the lake.

Little Econ Greenway: a 7-mile trail following the Little Econlockhatchee River. Restrooms, water, and parking are available at two parks along the trail.

Go Long

Cady Way Trail is a paved path stretching just over 9 miles through Orlando and Winter Park, beginning at the Orlando Fashion Square Mall and following an abandoned railroad corridor.

It ends northeast of the Goldenrod area, where it connects to the Cross Seminole Trail.

Want to add some serious mileage to your day? The 23-mile Cross Seminole Trail will do it. This trail runs north-south and covers much of Seminole County.

You’ll pass through Oviedo, Longwood, and Lake Mary, each of which have restaurants where you can rest and refuel, and bike shops in case you need an extra tube or a protein bar.

Much of this trail is less urban, granting you a little relief from your busy schedule as you ride away from the city and under peaceful canopies of oak trees and Spanish moss.

If you would rather stick to Orange County, the West Orange Trail is another popular, long trail, stretching 22 miles from Killarney Station all the way to Apopka.

Park at the beginning or along the way and ride out and back, stopping for food or a cruise around downtown in Winter Garden.

Don’t Have a Bike?

Not to fear! Lots of bike shops rent bikes for the day or weekend. Depending on which trail you choose, call a couple of shops in the surrounding area to see what bikes they have available and to compare rates.

Stay Safe

Make sure to wear a helmet and comfortable clothes, and bring plenty of water! Sections of these trails are in the full sun and you’ll heat up quickly, especially during Florida’s hotter months!
