Whether it’s enjoying the West Orange Trail through Winter Garden, getting dirty on Schofield Road’s Red Clay, in-line drafting with your crew on Horizon West’s new roads, or a leisurely ride through downtown Windermere, we have some of the best riding trails in Centra Florida.
Dennis Jones, Owner of Winter Garden Wheel Works (407-654-1496) on Plant Street, shared that the best bike is the one that fits your riding style and feels comfortable, “we spend a lot of time with our customers between test rides and expert fitting to make sure the bike is set up perfectly and enjoyable to ride.” He added, “I really like the Specialized Roll Sport; it’s a ‘Fitness Hybrid’ bike. The Roll Sport does equally well on the road, in the dirt, and for leisurely Sunday rides through town. Options for a wide range of Shimano gears, a comfortable, upright geometry, wide and grippy 650b tires, hassle-free mechanical disc brakes, and a whole host of other components that are built to withstand years of riding make this our most popular bike right now.”
Hot Ride Electronics:
“At Wheel Works, we are all about safety, and although there are a lot of great fitness wearable electronics for riders, we recommend bike (or handlebar) mounted devices (phone holders or cycling computers) to ensure that you are always looking up and not down at your wrist!”. Dennis continued, “one of our favorites is the Garmin Edge 530. It has all the cycling data and GPS mapping you would expect from Garmin, plus cycling safety features (new bike alarm, group messaging and tracking, incident detection and compatibility with Varia rearview radar and lights so you can see and be seen), performance monitoring (your VO2 max, recovery, training load focus, heat and altitude acclimation, nutrition, hydration, etc.), and has a ton of free apps, widgets and data fields from the Garmin Connect iQ Store.”
Music For The Ride:
“As I mentioned, we are all about safe riding, and your choice of earbuds for music (or your phone) is really important as in-ear buds can really make it difficult to be aware of what’s going on around you.” Dennis said, “With an open ear, bone conduction bud, you get the best of both worlds; you can hear everything around you, and you don’t have to sacrifice music quality. The AfterShokz Aeropex’s are pretty hot right now. They are Bluetooth 5.0, IP67 waterproof, have about an 8-hour battery life, are lightweight, comfortable, and sound great!”
