This mountain bicycling event will challenge each rider with a tour through one of North Florida';s most diverse ecological and geological preserves. The Tour de Felasco is presented by the Friends of San Felasco, Inc., a non-profit volunteer Citizen Support Organization (CSO) dedicated to supporting the trail system and other efforts within the park, and this event is the main fundraiser for the CSO.
The Tour is not a race, but rather a group ride through a challenging series of trails. The Tour route will test your bike skills and endurance with rolling hills, short climbs, sinkholes, creek crossings, and log bridges. Experience areas of the park open to bikes only for the Tour, while supporting the CSO';s efforts to improve this magnificent trail system.
The Tour covers either 50 miles or a metric century of 62 miles (your choice) without crossing a single paved road. There';s a time cutoff for the metric century option. Any rider who meets the cutoff time is invited to extend the ride. Participants who want a shorter tour will be able to exit after lunch for a 35 mile ride.
The registration fee is $50 (plus active.com fees) and includes a Tour long sleeve t-shirt. No additional park entrance fee is required. You may purchase additional Tour t-shirts, sweatshirt hoodies, and custom bandanas during the registration process (or anytime prior to November 30).

- Only pre-registered riders are accepted.
