BIKE TRAIL

You don’t have to travel to Europe and sign up for the Tour de France in order to enjoy biking. It’s right here in Citrus County, Florida.

Inverness is now known as a "bike friendly" city by providing easy access to The Withlacoochee Trail State Park, the largest bike park in the area. With 46 miles of paved tail that runs along the course of the Withlacoochee River, it’s built on an abandoned and reclaimed railroad track and runs across several counties. The Trail is the largest paved trail in the state of Florida. An unpaved horse trail runs along portions of the 46 miles, should you wish to ride your horse through one of the most beautiful scenic areas of Florida. You’ll ride near small towns and ranches to take in the sights and sounds of rural, natural and beautiful Florida. It’s mostly flat trail riding, so you need not worry about climbing steep terrain.

The State of Florida plans to join many other trails in the area to build a Central Florida Loop. The Trail starts to the north in Citrus Springs and ends to the south in Dade City. 2012 Brought almost 300,000 visitors to bike this majestic trail. This is truly a biker's paradise and it's here, waiting for you.

The next largest trail in the area is the Suncoast Trail. It's over 41 miles and is officially designated as part of Florida's Statewide Greenways and Trails System. It follows the Suncoast Parkway Toll Road from Tampa through Brooksville. Enjoy the natural environment of Florida’s wildlife while peddling near major metropolitan areas as well as through small towns of nearby Hernando County, just south of the Citrus County border.

The Withlacoochee Bay Trail is a 5-mile trail and an exciting trip to the Gulf of Mexico from US19. Bring your camera to capture the beautiful sunsets at the end of this trail.

Also nearby is the Brooksville Cycling Classic. It’s a popular 2-day event which takes cyclers through the streets of Brooksville and then through the hillier area of Spring Lake. Who needs a spa to work out in when there’s all this wide, open and gorgeous terrain to bike through?
