sports.PintrailSaturday morning’s ride will encompass a total of 46 miles, mostly along the famous Pinellas Trail, one of the the most unique urban trails in the nation.  Our destination will be the trail town of Dunedin at the Dunedin Brewery for lunch, fun, and great beer.  We will stop along the way to take pictures of the scenery at places such as Taylor Park and Boca Ciega Bay.  This will be a slow, no-drop, “stop and smell the roses” ride and will be a lot of fun as we discover how the Pinellas Trail has contributed to economic development and tourism in urban Florida.

As it is an out-and-back ride, we will be providing shuttles for those that just want to ride to Dunedin, making your trip only 23 miles.
