Orlando has been designated a Bike Friendly Community since 2000 thanks to over 300 miles of urban bicycling trails, signed routes and lanes located throughout the city. Bikes are an inexpensive and efficient transportation alternative to cars that help reduce street congestion and the production of carbon monoxide.
With five city-wide trails, exploring Orlando on bike has never been easier. The Cady Way Trail extends from the Fashion Square Mall through Orange County with many restaurants, retail and employment centers located throughout. Shingle Creek Trail is located seven miles southwest of Downtown Orlando and runs from north of Millennia Mall to the Orlando International Premium outlets. The Orlando Urban Trail is located near Downtown and is a great trail for those who are looking for scenic rides past lakes or want to visit sites such as Loch Haven Park. The Lake Underhill Path provides a direct connection to six City parks and the Orlando Southeast Trail offers 13 miles of riding east of Orlando International Airport.
No bike? Not a problem. The Juice Bike Share program has over 20 stations and 200 bicycles throughout the city that can be rented for short-term use. Renters can pay per hour or purchase monthly and yearly memberships, making it an accessible and affordable option.
We’re proud to have been designated as a Bicycle Friendly Community since 2000. We continue to focus on strengthening our bike routes by enhancing wayfinding signage and adding bike racks and repair stations,” Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said.
