A paved trail is being built at the Santos Trailhead!

Huge news!
The Santos Trailhead is not only home to hiking, equestrian and mountain bike trails and a campground… we are now getting a paved trail!  The first leg of the trail will be 10 miles, going from the Santos Trailhead to the Landbridge Trailhead.  It is nice and shaded, and will be paved in about a month!  The next leg of the trail will work to link it to other paved trails… how exciting!!
Stay tuned for updates!
To celebrate our paved trail, Greenway Bikes will be adding road bikes and hybrids to our rental fleet… perfect for riding the new trail!

Bumby Path Ribbon Cutting Event!

Bumby Path Ribbon Cutting Event!

We are excited to announce that Bumby Avenue and the new multi-use path are scheduled to open on or before April 14, 2017. We look forward to celebrating with you and your neighbors as we officially open the new path.

Join us on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 9:30 a.m., for a ribbon cutting of the new multi-use path followed by a bike ride. We will start our bike ride at Lake Druid Park, then follow the sharrow routes to the Bumby multi-use path. The ribbon cutting will take place on the path at Bumby Avenue and Oregon Street. We encourage you to join us at this location on your bikes and ride with us along the path to Audubon Park Garden District. If you plan to drive to this event, please park at Lake Druid Park and bike with us to Bumby Avenue and Oregon Street. Juice bikes will be available on a first-come-first-served basis at Lake Druid Park.

The opening of the new path and the reopening of Bumby Avenue marks an exciting time as the City continues to make investments in our infrastructure and enhance the safety of our cyclists and pedestrians. This improvement project supports the City’s goal of enhancing our transportation options to connect more of our residents to jobs and opportunity, promoting active lifestyles and reducing our impact on the environment. The scope of the North Bumby Avenue Improvement Project was significant and included reconstructing the road, installing a new stormwater collection system to improve drainage and reduce flooding, planting more than 125 trees, constructing a new 10-foot wide multi-use path, adding new sidewalks and crosswalks, enhancing pedestrian signals with audible countdowns, installing new bike repair stations and wayfinding signage plus expanding our trail system to connect our Orlando Urban Trail to the Cady Way Trail.

Ivanhoe Village Voted Most Romantic Main Street

Ivanhoe Village Voted Most Romantic Main Street

Orlando’s Ivanhoe Village Main Street District, the awesome neighborhood that is home of Retro City Cycles, just outside of downtown along Interstate 4, is a lover’s paradise—eclectic shops and makerspaces, art-filled museums, Spanish moss-draped oaks and posh restaurants with patios abound. Ivanhoe Village also prides itself on being “open minded, artistic, friendly and multi-cultural.”

If you go: Nothing says romance like a love note—start your day at Paper Goat Post for everything you need to share your sweet nothings in style. (They also offer wedding planning services.) Creative juices flowing? Cozy up to some art at the Orlando Museum of Art, or check out Factur, Orlando’s maker’s space, to see creative projects, artwork, and business plans in the making. Be sure to plan a stroll in Gaston Edwards Park to take in a sunset over Lake Ivanhoe before you head to a romantic tapas dinner on the patio at Santiago’s Bodega. Grab a nightcap at Better Than Sex—this “dessert restaurant” also offers indulgent cocktails. edited and posted by National Main Streets 2017
