• The Spin Starts Here: How to Love Adventure Coast Cycling

    Terrain variety, natural surroundings and a shady small downtown welcome bicyclists to Florida’s Adventure Coast. Home to the Brooksville Ridge, it boasts challenging elevation changes amid miles of level terrain. Winding through forests, preserves and scenic countryside, your perfect ride awaits!

    New to Adventure Coast cycling? Here is what you need to know:

    Anything goes

    Road, touring, mountain or racing bikes in straight up, prone, recumbent, or tiny trailer-towing tandems are all good here.


    The Withlacoochee StateSuncoast and Good Neighbor Trails are smooth, wide, paved expanses free of motorized vehicles and easily host all manner of pedal power.

    Freeform or Organized

    Prepare for an independent ride by reviewing the official Adventure Coast Bicycle Trail Map. Locate the trailhead and parking area suited for you.

    Two Cyclists on Good Neighbor Trail

    Travel the full paved length of the Good Neighbor Trail; starting at downtown Brooksville’s Russell Street Park, ride ten miles to the Withlacoochee State Trail. Future plans call for the Good Neighbor Trail to join the paved north-south Suncoast Trail to the west, closing a gap in the planned Coast to Coast Connector, a 250 mile paved trail joining Florida’s west and east coasts.

    If you enjoy the comradery of group rides, join the Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday evening shop rides lead by the Trek Spring Hill. Also available to join is a Saturday morning twelve-mile ride.


    Follow both Crank Works Bicycles and Trek Spring Hill on Facebook for the latest updates on any shop rides planned and confirmed.

    Join ride events scheduled throughout the year such as the Hilly Hundred in December.

    For more mountain bike options, consult the SWAMP calendar of mountain bike rides and events.


    Whichever approach you take, be sure to bring your Adventure Coast bike map and check the weather forecast. If you would like to create your own route or see if one is already mapped, check this Biking in Florida or the Ride with GPS app.

    Gear Up

    Besides a map and smart phone app, some other items to carry are tool kit, water, sunblock, insect repellent, camera and rain gear. Crank Works, Trek Spring Hill and Brooksville Bicycle Center love to match customers with ideal new or used bicycles, do bike repairs and carry a full line of accessories and tools.

    Safe and Sound

    Helmets highly recommended and required for those sixteen and under in Florida. Wearing a helmet can save your life. Choose the best helmet for you by investing in comfort and quality.

    A safety enhancement for Suncoast Trail users is GPS decals placed along the trail. Should you need help, just tell rescue personnel the nearest coordinates to assure quick response.


    Exclusive AAA Benefit:
    New Bicycle Assist Program

    The American Automobile Association (AAA) recently expanded their roadside assistance to include bicycles! AAA will pick up members whose bikes have broken down and take them and their bike to wherever they need to go – their car, a bike repair shop or home. AAA just needs to be able to access the bike from a road or parking lot.
