Ready for a challenge? Ready to do what you thought maybe you couldn't do? Love to cycle, swim, snorkel? Love the Florida out-of doors? It's all at Adventure Cycling Camp - friends, fun and a week of excitement.

Campers arrive on Sunday at a location in the Ocala National Forest. We will pitch tents there for the week and bike the multiple trail rides at the park. Daily bike trips to enjoy some of the area amenities.

Campers - PACK LIGHT. All tents will be provided by Florida Diabetes Camp. Bikes are also available for loan. We prefer you use our pre-inspected bikes unless you are an avid cyclist and have a high quality bike. Helmets (also available to borrow) are required at all times when on bikes. Dr. Sheila Walaszek is the physician in charge and will be at the camp the entire session. Campers and staff will cycle 30+ miles a day so begin to get in shape now!

Minimum age for campers is 15. Map, what to bring list, cycling instructions, etc will be sent upon receipt of registration.

Adventure Camp - more than a bike ride! Cycling, swimming, friends, challenge, adventure - a great way to prove that "you can handle it!"
