For the 44th year, on the weekend of Oct. 4-7, the Mount Dora Bicycle Festival will serve as ground zero for pedal power. More than a thousand cyclists of varying skills are expected to take up the ride, and thousands more will join the celebration. It is Florida’s oldest and largest bike festival.
There are three days of participatory events for cyclists, and Mount Dora doesn’t leave anyone behind. There will be dozens of booths serving food, selling crafts and bringing all that Mount Dora has to offer into the downtown area.
