We offered biking as one of the extracurricular activities at our annual conference last week. The riders had a fantastic time and couldn't stop talking about it. Alex was super and made planning the event a breeze. A+ all around. I highly recommend Alex and The Ride Xperience!
Rented a nice road bike from these guys for two days. Perfect operating condition and comes to your hotel set up with your cleat and measurement preferences. All you need is shoes! Really easy as pie.
Did recommended route 2 from bonnet creek area. Area around Disney really not bad given wide and high quality roads. Area to the west was fine but be aware that you will see a fair bit of dump truck traffic passing you. Not a bad diversion for Orlando.
I live and ride in Silicon Valley, but I was in town for several days on business. Instead of flying home on the early morning non-stop to SFO, I decided to stick around and either go for a ride or play golf in Orlando. I'm glad I choose a ride. (Which, all in, was a bit cheaper than a round at Grande Cypress and lots more fun!)
I was lucky enough to catch a slow day and so I got a custom tour. Alex was waiting for my at my hotel promptly at 8 AM and my Strava says we started our ride at Winter Garden at 8:47. We then did a nice 45 out and back with loops around Lakes Minneola and Minnehaha including a delightful stop at a combination bike shop/coffee bar. I was back and easily able to grab a shower before a pre-arranged late checkout at 2 PM.
I've been back about a week and telling my friends and colleagues about the delightful ride I had in Orlando. I almost forget that we got unexpectedly drenched in a couple short downpours. But, that just added to the experience!
I can't imagine a better introduction to the Orlando area on a bike. There were no real hills to speak of, but I get plenty of those at home. Next time, I think I'll try to stay a few days and do the couple hundred mile ride across Florida.
What a Great Experience....Really Friendly service and highly knowledgeable...We were picked up for our Tour on time by Alex, who was very Professional and a Great Host. Ride Xperience couldn't do more to accommodate us, from choice of bicycles, pedals and safety helmets, right thru to the ride and route...with plenty of rest stops which included some of Orlando's outstanding country side....I'd highly recommend riding with these Guys....Thanks for an Excellent Xperience.
I needed to rent a bike for 70.3 Ironman in Florida. Alex was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the process, delivered / picked up the bike. He had all the accessories in his car, including different pedals.
Alex was a first class host, great communication and service. As I was coming from the UK he mapped out two rides and sent to me a GPX file and via strava. Bike were first class and in mint condition. I have to say the free waterbottles and gel packs were a nice touch. I will deffo use again.
If you want to enjoy a nice bike ride near Orlando, this is the one! Alex offers the full package including a superb specialized bike! After picking me up at the hotel Alex engaged in guiding me personally to a ride from Winter Garden. A ride through the nature to the lake where we had a refreshment at the bike energy lab! You discover the region on a beautiful and sportive way! I certainly come back here!
Alex, our guide and owner of The Ride Xperience, treated us to a morning like no other on our vacation in Orlando. After meeting us in Winter Park, we enjoyed a 32 mile ride to witness beautiful scenery including a trip around a serene lake. We made a pit stop halfway at a great bike shop and coffee/juice bar. Alex was delightful companionship - my husband and I feel like we have made a new friend!
Alex's motto should be “treat others the way they don’t even know they want to be treated”. To boil it down…anticipate, anticipate, anticipate. The Ride Xperience didn't just meet our expectations, Alex EXCEED them.
