Day 1 Tuesday April 27 2021  - Titusville to Sanford

Day 1 - 46.1 miles

Todays ride will be 46.1 miles. The complete route can be found here. Most of our day will be spent riding on the East Coast Regional Rail Trail. The East Coast Regional Rail Trail extends across Brevard and Volusia counties on abandoned rail lines. At 52 miles, it’s the longest rail-trail conversion in the state. The trail has three legs – one extending up to Edgewater and one down to Titusville at the Indian River. Those two trails meet west of I-95 and continue west through beautiful undeveloped countryside. At mile 36, the East Coast Trail ends and we pick up the Spring to Spring Trail which goes to mile 42. The Spring to Spring Trail connects a number of natural springs, parks, and friendly towns between De Leon Springs and Deltona in Central Florida. At mile 43.3 we pick up the final two trails that will take us to our destination. The first is the Riverwalk Trail which is very short (less than 1/4 mile) followed by the Rinehart Road Trail (3 miles).  By the first decade of the 20th century, Sanford was one of the largest vegetable shipping centers in the United States, and received the nickname "Celery City" for the most successful crop.
