This cycling event is not a race, but does add a fun and competitive element. The winning hand of a blackjack or poker hand wins $500 in prizes! Here is how it works...
There are two options for the 40 mile "blackjack route you start at the Trek Ft. Myers store and get one card. Then you head to the Trek Estero Store to collect your second card. Then back to Trek Ft. Myers to get you final card to complete your blackjack hand.
The 80 mile option "poker" route involves 5 stops and 5 cards. Starting at Trek Ft. Myers, Trek Estero, Trek Naples, Trek Estero and ending back at Trek Ft. Myers.
And it is for a good cause! 100% of your entry fee (minus Active.com charge) will go to the local United Way. Ride United!
