Watch: The Best Winter Riding in the East – The Famous Santos MTB Trails and Vortex Pit in Ocala, FL

The Singletrack Sampler rides the Santos mountain bike trail system in Ocala, Florida.

It’s about time I made my first trip to the famed Santos mtb trails of Florida, and what better way to experience it than with friends!?

This has been a long time coming… not only for me to visit the famed Santos trails a mere 2 hours from where I started mountain biking, but also for the first ever Patron Ride in my home state!! I was SUPER IMPRESSED with how many people were able to make it on such short notice, and I think it just goes to show how strong the riding community is down in FL 😀

On to Santos….

This place was a dream! Santos is the type of trail system that will help you become a better mountain biker. It has a skills progression of everything from drops, to jumps, to even skinnies. They start very approachable and end MASSIVE; I mean much bigger jumps and drops than I expected to see for sure!

On this ride we did a little bit of everything as I wanted to get acquainted with the area and place, so grab a brew, maybe even some lunch, and come along for the ride with us!!
