You’re invited to the 

Inaugural Brooksville Good Neighbor Trail Bike Ride

 

SAVE THE DAY!

October 14, 2018

 

Join us for the inaugural Brooksville GOOD NEIGHBOR TRAIL Bike Ride as we celebrate the completion of the eastern portion of the Brooksville Good Neighbor Trail, part of the 220 mile Coast to Coast Trail!

We have a beautifully designed T-shirt to mark the occasion and each participant that is registered by October 1st is guaranteed to receive one in their size. This is a fundraising ride to benefit the Brooksville Mainstreet Program. Our vision is “BROOKSVILLE AS A THRIVING URBAN CORE”.

The Brooksville Vision Foundation is a Florida 501(c)3 nonprofit and is a committed partner of Brooksville Mainstreet Program in partnership with the City of Brooksville and Hernando County. The Mainstreet Program has brought a positive impact to many cities in Florida and across the USA.

Brooksville Main Street recognizes our community’s desire to have a thriving urban core, one that supports an active business environment, a place to recreate and a place proud to call home. To support the mission, Brooksville Main Street, under the guidance of its Executive Director Ryan Malloy, has created a number of Brooksville events including Christmas on Main Street”, the Friday Night Live Concerts, the Good Neighbor Trail Bike Ride, and the Brooksville Good Neighbor Festival coming up on October 13 and 14, 2018.

We hope to make the Good Neighbor Trail ride an annual event, so come join us for a Fall ride through the Brooksville and Hernando County countryside!

The 2018 Inaugural Ride is Sunday, October 14. Walk-up registration and Check-in for pre-registered participants is from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM.

Train Depot) and a 65-mile ride that will take riders up into Citrus County on the Withlacoochee and return to the start/finish at the Train Depot. All routes are exclusively on paved rail trails.
