Cross Florida Ride ( Bicycle event)
Proposed Event, NOT firm.
Sat Apr 6
|Public details: We will be hosting riders from all over the country in this unique event. We're taking you over 170 miles on quiet back country roads.
We start in Cocoa Beach at Alan Shepard Park at the eastern terminus of SR-520, and will be traveling a well-marked route south of the metro Orlando area, then through hilly Pasco county, and finishing up at the beautiful Bayport Park on the Gulf coast.
Please understand that we have taken great care to keep the route at it's current length yet try to avoid 'hazardous routes,' but in some rural areas there are limited choices if any at all.
As with any bike event, exercise caution when riding public roads and obey all traffic laws.|
Please be prepared because this won't be like your typical century ride. There will be four (4) SAG stops on the route: the first two are manned and provide food and drinks, and the last two are unmanned and provide drinks only.
You will also have support from roving SAG vehicles that can provide mechanical support as well as can SAG you to the finish line. You may need to depend on convenience stores along the route for some of your food and hydration, so we will provide a list of convenience stores located along the route along with your cue sheet and map so you can plan your stops accordingly.
