South Lake Bike and Tri

In the Heart of Central Florida's Hill Country

Opened in 1995 and purchased by Brett in 2013, South Lake Bikes has been proudly serving Southern Lake County with friendly quality service seldom found in large corporate style stores. We welcome all customers with open arms and personable service from our well trained mechanics with access to several premium brands at great prices. 

Listed below are a few of our regular riding routes. All routes start and stop at the shop and can be easily accessed by using the South Lake - West Orange Trail system. 

Please be careful if planning a trip on these routes as some roads are busy with traffic. Bicycling on open public roads carries inherent risk and South Lake Bike and Tri is not responsible for any injuries resulting from riding these routes. Riders participate at their own risk. 

Also please note that many of the "Shortcuts" you might see on the maps are gravel or dirt roads. Many of these routes take riders out and away from town centers and into rural areas where roads can be rough or unpaved. All routes listed here are on blacktop roads. Elevation profiles are accessed by clicking "Toggle Elevation" on the right of the map. Please Enjoy!

Trail ride from South Lake Bikes to the end of the trail in Apopka. 27 miles one way.


Fun in the Hills! Lots of climbs all local to and including Sugar Loaf Mountain Rd. 34 Miles.


Friday Morning Group Ride. Starts flat and ends in some hills. Great for groups. 30.5 miles.


Cherry Lake to Villa City Rd out and back "Lolly Pop Loop". 26 miles.


Groveland Loop to Villa City to Dewey Robins to Buckhill to Grassy Lake. 57.5 Miles.

*This route can easily be made into a decent Century ride by simply adding in loops around the hills by Sugarloaf and by rerouting the end to include Cherry Lake and Wilson Lake Prkwy. Please be careful on Hwy 27!
