When finished, the loop will provide residents with a car-free alternative to access shopping, dining, entertainment, parks, offices, and services.

The loop is comprised of off-street bikeways and will connect more than a dozen neighborhoods. It will also connect to multiple existing walkways and paths, including the Orlando Urban Trail, Lake Underhill Path, and Cady Way Trail, to name a few.
