Love Myakka River State Park?   Love to Bike Myakka?  Looking for an opportunity to give back?


Then join us for our March Bike Myakka! for Good Service Ride.


We'll be kicking off Florida Bicycle Month on Saturday, March 5th with an OFF ROAD ride together to the Horse Camp!  After a short (under an hour) invasive plant removal project, we will enjoy a free picnic lunch, sponsored by Friends of Myakka River.


PLEASE NOTE:  This ride will include 5 miles of off-road riding (total ride distance 10 miles).  We will be riding on gravel, packed dirt and sand.  To fully appreciate Myakka's stunning Dry Prairie, we will not be riding fast, and stopping and walking any challenging areas is always an option.  We will be working and eating in Myakka's beautiful back country.  There is a privy available for our use at the Horse Camp.


All registered Myakka River Members who attend will receive a FREE Myakka Wild & Scenic Trails Map (created from aerial photos).  A very helpful tool to have in the back country!
