Description

Held every year on Super Bowl Sunday, the Urban Gorilla ride is a celebration of cycling in Tallahassee. Touring through many of the city's parks, the ride will give participants a better feel for riding in the area. Riders of all ability levels are encouraged to join, as the ride is always enjoyable!

There will be multiple groups of many varied skill levels on the ride, and all will be encouraged to stick with a group and ride as much or little of the route as desired. Most of the trails have options that include more difficult or easy routes.

There will be refreshment stops at local establishments when desired, and a sag stop on the Miccossukkee Greenway.
