Fast becoming a local favorite, Twisted Trails: Least of the Beast is a story about the future of cycling but it all starts in Venice, Florida. Right from the first chapter we are taken on a ride through the wilds of the T. Mabry Carlton Reserve as our main character learns that Florida has more to offer than sunshine and beaches.

Twisted Trails Sponsors Zoomers Running Club


Back in 2012 I decided to try something new - running races. My first event was a local trail run put on by the Zoomers Running Club. The exhilaration of completing the 5K coupled with the spark that comes from lively competition gave me a whole new appreciation for running. Over the next few years I would take part in 15 more such events while taking photos of the races and writing stories for their newsletter.

Zoomers is more than a race promoter, they are a community of local runners. They hold a casual group run every Thursday night at Englewood Beach (Check here for updates). They hold an annual awards ceremony for their own race series along with other social events. Most importantly they support each others ambitions.

The Twisted Trails Series is proud to sponsor the Zoomer's efforts and events. I have dusted off my running shoes and signed up for the same race where I started four years ago, now called the Trick or Trot 5K. This is a Halloween race so the only question left to answer is - what should I wear?
