Santos Fat Tire Festival Bike Expo

Come see, feel, and ride* the newest bicycles and gear of 2018 at the Santos Fat Tire Bike Expo.  Located at the Santos Trailhead, 3080 SE 80th Street just off of 441 between Ocala and Belleview, FL, the Expo is free to attend and open to the public.

The Santos Fat Tire Bike Expo is the largest collection of bicycle manufacturers and bike shops in Florida and the southeast.  This year over 50 companies will be represented with mountain and road bikes, accessories, and clothing.  We even have bicycle-related art and jewelry!

Professionally led cycling skills clinics are available by Take Aim Cycling.  Maps are provided of the area trails and are specially marked for one-mile and 3-mile loops during the weekend.

On Sunday there will be a special mountain bike “trials style” show at noon.

Keep you eyes open for specially marked Raffle Baskets at the different booths, each with a value of at least $250.  Tickets are available at the OMBA Pavilion and you do not need to be present to win.  Drawing is 1pm on Sunday.  Fundraising efforts support our Bikes for Kids programs locally during the holidays.
