Cycle the Sunshine State this fall with the STIHL Tour des Trees

The STIHL Tour des Trees will be held Oct. 25-31, 2015 (Orlando to Ft. Lauderdale).

Here are some ideas to improve on a week spent riding your bike to benefit the urban forest?

  • Roll out of Walt Disney World in late October (plus: enjoy a behind-the scenes tour of WDW)
  • Learn a lot about orchids (or just take a lot of pictures)
  • Cycle a sandy beach on a fat-wheeled beach cruiser
  • Amass an impressive collection of beachfront sunset photos
  • Learn a lot about pruning (and get your book signed by Dr. Ed Gilman)
  • Spend an hour with Professor Pricklethorn talking trees with Florida’s kids
  • Ogle alligators from an Everglades air boat
  • Pay tribute to Florida arborist and Tour rider John White at Miami’s FairchildGardens
  • Meet some new cycling buddies during a week of fun, sun, friendship and cycling to benefit the TREE Fund, the urban forest and the professionals dedicated to its care.

 

Registration opens Jan 12 at www.stihltourdestrees.org
