It’s the middle of March, and cabin fever is afflicting mountain bikers all across the United States. Thankfully, if you want to escape the vice-like grip of snow and cold temperatures, there are plenty of places to catch some rays and roll on dry dirt.
Here are 13 fantastic choices for a spring mountain bike getaway:
Average temps: March: high of 79, low of 52. April: high of 84, low of 56.
Marquee ride: Santos.
Ocala, aka the home of Santos, is the perfect place for a spring break mountain bike trip. There are enough trails at Santos to keep you entertained for days on end! And whether your prefer cross country or freeride, there’s something for everyone. Also, since you’re in Florida soaking in the sunshine, if you want to add in some classic spring break time on the beach, that’s not far away, either.
While the annual Santos Fat Tire Festival has already passed, that doesn’t mean it’s too late to plan a trip to Florida!
