"Just what is this place?"  Let's take a free, 1.5 hour low-impact bicycle ride together in the footsteps of presidents, first ladies, American songwriters, international best-selling authors, astronauts, Hollywood stars and national nonprofit leaders.  Find out why they came here from 1885 to 1927, and why many famous people come here today on these historic grounds.  Learn fascinating tidbits how Arbor Day in Florida started here, and in what structure.  See inside the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood and old Lakeside Hospital.  Entire tour is on Circle Drive, around the festival grounds of LakeFest 2021.  Kid-friendly.  Everyone must be on a bike to participate or be willing to drive their own golf cart or car from location to location.  Inquire about the use of handicapped-assessible golf cart provided by Tri-State Christian Camp.  This bike tour is orchestrated and hosted by the Florida Chautauqua Association, official organizers of the annual, historic Florida Chautauqua Assembly.

Free primitive campsite on festival grounds Friday and Saturday evenings of the event who bring a bicycle or other sporting gear to participate in any LakeFest Festival activity.
