Cycle For Life
This has been the first ride of the year for the last couple of years but low attendance may mean that it will not continue this year. We will update this page
as we get more information.
It is organized by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
– a national charity that supports the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure.
MS Muck Ruckus
This is not a ride for us but it is another fun and exciting way to support the MS Society
Participants run a 10km (6 mile) course consisting of various obstacles mostly surrounded by mud. We man the Key Check tent where participants
can leave their keys and other belongings while they run the course. It's a lot of fun and a great social event.
Katie Ride For Life
This has become our second largest ride each year with over 1,000 cyclists participating.
It benefits the Katie Caples Foundation
and their efforts to raise awareness of the need for organ and tissue donation.
Tour de Forts
Five rides of different lengths along a common course from north Jacksonville to Fernandina Beach and
back. It is held every year in April and is sponsored by the North Florida Bicycle Club
As a lead-up to the MS Bike Tour, there are several 30
to 50 mile training rides sponsored by the local bicycle shops throughout
the months of July, August and September.
Every year, a couple of weeks before the MS Bike Tour, there is a multi-route, multi-distance ride starting in St. Augustine
and riding around St. Johns county as the final training ride before the MS Bike Tour. It is organized by the
North Florida Bicycle Club
Patriot's Memorial Ride
A memorial ride held every year as close as possible to September 11th to commemorate the victims of the 9-11-2001 terrorist attacks.
In keeping with the 9-11 theme, the ride is 91.1 km (a little over 55 miles) through St. John's county
and around St. Augustine. It is organized by the Cody's Challenge
cycling team and their captain, Joe Pelley.
