The Amelia Island Trail Social Ride is a beginning level ride perfect for those just starting to bicycle with groups and for those that prefer a slow paced relaxing bicycle journey. The pace will be comfortable for all types of bicycles.
The Amelia Island Trail is an off-road paved recreational path on which no cars are allowed. Experienced Ride Leaders will ride at the front and rear of the group and no rider will be left behind. As you ride you will learn how to ride safely with a group.
The rides begins at the North Trailhead of the Amelia Island Trail within Peters Point Beachfront Park and goes south 7.6 miles to the turn-around point at Sawpit Creek Boat Ramp on Big Talbot Island and then it heads back to the start for a total distance of just over 15 miles.
