The West Florida Wheelmen have weekly rides that cater to all abilities!  Come out & join us!

Saturday Pensacola ‘In City’ Ride: Start varies - check calendar.  Alternates among our “Circle of Rides”, with the upcoming selection posted on our web page calendar by David Mayo. Usually has A and B options, see ride description for the week for more details.

Saturday Blackwater ‘In the Country’ Ride: 8AM. Ride in the beautiful Blackwater State Forest! Starts from the Blackwater Heritage Trail (a Rails to Trails Park) parking lot at Stewart St. and Highway 90 in Milton, right next to Truly Spokin’ Bicycles. Various routes are planned each week by David Murphy and posted on the Blackwater Cycling Facebook page. Includes A, B, C, and sometimes even more groups doing the same route so no one gets left behind.

Ride distances are approximate. Some riders only do portions of the longer rides. We stop every 20-25 miles for rest stops and ensure all riders are safe. We try to ensure all riders know the route and wait at turns for all to re-group.  Our goal is to provide rides for all levels of riders and their various desires for pace and distance.   Don’t forget that helmets are mandatory on all WFW club rides.
