The Royal Highlands Bicycle Club is located in Leesburg, Florida.  Royal Highlands is a 55+ community located off Highway 27.

Please visit our new website at


Our bike club has a community ride every Saturday morning and on all even-numbered weekdays.  We meet at our Great Hall at 8 AM (9 in winter) and ride our community roads.  We encourage all Royal Highlands residents to come out and ride with us.  After our Saturday morning rides, we have breakfast at the Crown and Shield, our community's restaurant, which is located at the Monarch Golf Club. (Breakfast currently suspended during pandemic.) We also have weekly trail rides on local trails.   We car pool and depart from the Great Hall.  The dates and times are on our Calendar (accessible to members only).
