Jasper — The Suwannee Bicycle Association (SBA), headquartered in White Springs, had their 19th annual IDIDARIDE on Saturday, Jan. 26. Over 400 cyclists of all ages converged on White Springs to enjoy 50 miles of on and off road trails.

Trails include the Foster's Hammock (11 miles), the Bridge-to-Bridge (11 miles), the Beast of Burden, Barnett Track (9 miles), Big Shoals (10 miles), and the after dinner Telford Hotel ride.

“Our members love holding cycling events in White Springs,” said SBA president Sharon Shea. “Our members also enjoy returning to White Springs to hike on the scenic Florida Trail, and to kayak the Suwannee River.”

SBA is a non-profit membership organization formed over 20 years ago to promote environmental awareness and family fitness through bicycling and other outdoor activities in the Suwannee region. The organization's mission is to help people obtain greater understanding and appreciation of the Suwannee region's natural ecosystems, history and cultural heritage.
