The North Florida Bicycle Club brings you a one-day bicycle event designed for all road cyclists, the 28th Annual Tour de Forts Classic. Come ride with us in the footsteps of history on coastal roads past the Castillo de San Marcos to Fort Matanzas. On the longer routes ride through farmlands, on the Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail and along the St. Johns River. Take your pick of five routes: 26, 40, 59, 77 and 100 miles. We’ll provide pre-ride snacks, rest stops stocked with food, water and Gatorade, marked routes, maps, mechanical support, SAGs, motorcycle safety escorts and a post-ride lunch. Arrive on Friday or Saturday and make your ride a weekend getaway. Spend Saturday visiting Florida’s Historic First Coast and exploring the ancient City of St. Augustine, named the #1 domestic-travel destination by Money Magazine. Average temperatures in late April range from the 60s to the 80s for perfect biking and sightseeing weather.
