Orange Blossom Express

Florida bicycle event to bring more than 900 cyclists to Polk County roadways in March 2013.

Bike Florida’s 2013 Orange Blossom Express starts in Lakeland and will weave through orange grove country, skirting lakes to Clermont, Lake Wales and back to Lakeland. We spend two nights in each host city enjoying quality local rides and southern charm. Routes range from 40 to 68 miles with three century options out of each host city, Lakeland, Clermont and Lake Wales. Our longest move day route is 68 miles, our shortest is 48 miles when we ride back to Lakeland from Lake Wales on our final day. The Orange Blossom Express offers you the option to ride 175 miles or more than 475 miles, with many options in between.
