The Winter Garden Bike Fest is a bicycle route and race around the Winter Garden area. It's also a family event and exposition complete with live music, festival atmosphere, food, drinks, and a kids zone.

Cyclists can sign up for 10 miles, 30 miles, 62 miles, or 100 miles. The ride start times are different depending on which route you sign up for. Your registration gets you full support on route, SAG stops, an indoor lunch, t-shirt, Criterium Race, bike festival, kids zone, BMX demos and more. This event will be held rain or shine. Remember to bring your chairs and walking shoes so after your ride you can walk around town or find a spot along the race and enjoy the festivities.
