Bumpy, but never boring, ride on the Alafia River State Park bike trails
How hard could it be? The plan was, take the mountain bike out of the garage, pump up the tires and head to Alafia River State Park in eastern Hillsborough County. The park has some of the more scenic bike trails in the state. I imagined wide trails winding through trees and around lakes, and maybe a few hills.
There are nearly 21 miles worth of trails. Eight trails considered easy, seven intermediate and six difficult. The trails are color-coded — green denotes easy, blue intermediate and black difficult. There are even a few “double black diamond.” For riders who plan to enter the X Games.
