Ride the Surrey

Experience the beauty of The Legacy Trail as you ride in the comfort of the FLT surrey: a 4-passenger, 4-wheeled canopy covered bicycle.

The surrey is ideally suited for mobility challenged individuals, provided they can climb one step onto the surrey.  Friends of The Legacy Trail volunteers do the pedaling while you relax and enjoy the sights of a free 45 minute ride along with other cyclists, joggers, and walkers.

The surrey departs from the front of Laurel Park at the Sandra Sims Terry Community Center, 509 Collins Road, Nokomis.  For 2017, rides are offered Wednesdays and Thursdays from January 11 through April 20  at 9 am, 10 am, 11 am, and 12 noon

The surrey is a donation by the Friends of the Legacy Trail to Sarasota County to promote The Legacy Trail and other County parks.

Friends of The Legacy Trail volunteers provide this service for free. If you would like to support our organization, donations may be made on our website here, or by mail to Friends of The Legacy Trail, PO Box 792, Osprey, FL 34229.

How to Register: 

Advance registration is required.

Call 941-486-2757 and leave your name, phone number, number of people in your party, and your preferred date and time. A volunteer will return your call to confirm your reservation. Please note: volunteers return phone calls only on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You will receive a reservation reminder phone call one week prior to your scheduled ride.
