Orlando Urban Assault Ride "The East Ride"

Orlando is well know for the Mouse and its parks, but for the cyclist this group is always on time.
For many years twice a week this group get together and take the town. Done at night and on MTB's, the Urban Assault as they call it, has become the latest trend with the 9 to 5 professionals with a healthy attitude and a young spirit. Imagine those old days riding along the neighborhood with the buddies when you were 12!

Here is the info:

 Mix of road riding & mountain biking in an urban & residential setting. The route is random with some urban obstacles (eg. curbs, staircases, medians, etc.) Ride is roughly 2hrs long and averages about 25 miles. Speed varies throughout the ride but overall average is around 16-18mph. We will ride thru (not all in one night) Casselberry, Winter Park, Winter Springs, Longwood, Maitland. Suburbia is more cyclist friendly and most of the streets/roads have bike lanes. But we have plenty of residential roads and trails to zig zag around. **WEATHER PERMITTING!!**This is a no-drop ride - nobody gets left behind. Lights and helmet are required. We meet in the parking lot next to the Buffalo Wild Wings at 7:00. We roll out around 7:05. Ride ends at the starting point. The BWW restaurant/ bar with outdoor seating for food, drink. Hope to see you there.
