Marquee ride: Alafia River State Park.
The Tampa area is home to nearby Alafia River State Park and Balm Boyette Scrub Preserve, which both offer fantastic winter/spring mountain biking. Also, these trails are much closer to the beach than those in Ocala, so if you’re intent on combining trail riding and sunbathing, this is the place!
