It’s taken six months to be able to get back on a bike, and I’m back to checking out progress on the C2C. Here’s what’s new through downtown Titusville for riders.
Dedicated paved bicycle trails in Florida
After watching the progress on the ECRRT at Osteen over the past year, John takes a ride to the east to see how far the new paved bike path goes
John explores the C2C between Osteen and the St. Johns River by starting at Lake Monroe Park and ending at Osteen, using the Spring-to-Spring and ECRRT trails through southern Volusia County
Exploring Titusville by bike, I return to an old favorite and little-known 3.6-mile round-trip bike path that gives cyclists a great workout as it climbs atop the Atlantic Coastal Ridge: the City of Titusville Multi-Use Trail
There aren’t a lot of places you can (or should) bike down the Florida Trail, but the Lake Butler Trail in Union County is a nice country bike path that shares the trail with hikers.
John takes on an urban piece of the C2C in Sanford following the Rinehart Trail – bits of path, sidewalks, and road shoulders – to meet the Seminole Wekiva Trail
John bikes the next segment west on the Coast to Coast Connector, the Seminole Wekiva Trail. This well-established bike path connects Seminole County communities.
The Woodpecker Trail at Big Shoals State Park provides a 7-mile wildlife-rich round trip ride, but watch out for those puddles! John plunges in anyway to get the story.
After more than two years under construction, the newest portion of the Coast-to-Coast Trail opened without fanfare through North Titusville and Mims in September 2017. I rode it on Labor Day to check it out.
The Coast to Coast Connector, or C2C, is a 250-mile paved bike trail route between St. Petersburg and Titusville. Follow our exploration along this route.
