Sponsored By the Mount Dora Area Chamber of Commerce

The 40th Anniversary of the Mount Dora Bicycle Festival promises to be the best one in AGES! Having undergone an extreme make over of the physical property that encases the Chamber of Commerce, adjacent park and fresh new faces at the Chamber there is much excitement surrounding the big anniversary. In addition local cyclists have been involved in the planning.

Join us as we celebrate forty years of cycling in lovely Mount Dora! New routes, and tweaks to some of the old time favorite routes, will also add special flare to the three days of cycling.

Friday morning rides kick off the festival as our guides from the "We Must Be Crazy" cycling club lead various exploration rides to visit historic and beautiful parts of Lake County. Friday evening ends with a special treat: a Ghost Ride and mingle time at Merrill's (across the street from the Chamber.)

Saturday morning begins bright and early with the "Century Ride". Once those riders are seen off, rides of varying distances bring our guests back to the Chamber throughout the day. A brand new century route will take riders through beautiful northern Lake County on flat, scenic country roads. The metric century will lead our guests through Emerelda Marsh - a classic route of the MDBF.

After your ride, be sure to patronize our many fantastic restaurants within walking distance of down town. Also, plan on spending your Saturday evening at the Street Party with friendly competitions, contests and games, live entertainment and even more fun.

Sunday’s routes will start early and wrap up around lunch time so that you can get back on the road if need be –and wrap up the weekend with hotdogs on the grill and an ice cream social!

40th Anniversary Bicycle Festival Wines from The Wine Den

The Wine Den is very proud to present to you two exquisite wines with a cool theme for the 40th Anniversary Mount Dora Bicycle Festival.

A “Rouleur” is a French term for a rider
that has a very smooth pedaling action,
who is capable of riding at a steady tempo
over long distances.
This red wine delivers several of the same
characteristics, very smooth with flavors
lasting from first sip to finish.
"Bidon" is a French term for water bottle.
While we’re not drinking water here,
this white blend is a crisp and
well balanced white wine
that is great to sip by itself
on a warm October afternoon in Florida
or have with fresh Florida seafood.

The wines, like our festival, are unique and special wines hand selected by The Wine Den with the help of several of Florida’s top wine sommeliers and represent a great value in wine while the commemorative labels offer a lasting reminder of the good times had and the great friends met at the 40th Mount Dora Bicycle Festival.
