The Connect the Trails ride was formerly known as the FOLA 40….(Friends of Lake Apopka 40-mile ride around Lake Apopka). Although some folks are uber competitive, the ride is not a race but a great way to get out and ride around the lake and across the Lake Apopka North Shore. Winter Garden’s Wheel Works bike shop manages the event alongside and for the Friends of Lake Apopka. The ride is a more formal version of the regular “around-the-lake” ride regularly run by friends of Wheel Works and the Crooked Can.
