Jack Russell Park
850 Seminole Rd.
Atlantic Beach, FL 32233
is not Required
NFBC members only ride. Non-members may test 3 NFBC rides before joining. You must sign the ride waiver to participate in the ride and to earn club points and mileage. There will be a Safety Briefing Meeting 10 minutes before the start of the ride. Please arrive at the starting point early enough to get set up before the pre-ride meeting. Helmets required on all NFBC rides.
After a hiatus of about a year and a half, the Sundog ride will once again be an official North Florida Bicycle Club Ride.
In the spirit of the original Sundogs (John Crocker, Randy Raybon, Bill and Linda Donovan, Layne Wallace, JR Slaughter, Ro Kieran, Steve Burtchell and others), the ride will be a friendly and welcoming ride to all club members. In the spirit of the North Florida Bicycle Club, it will also be bound by the club rules. From either perspective, safety, fun and promotion of bicycling are the primary objectives of the ride.
- The ride will split into 2 or more groups based on speed and number of riders
- This is a no drop ride. An experienced rider familiar with the route will be appointed for the ride, so no one gets left behind
- After the ride, we will plan on going to lunch to one of the several area restaurants. If you have the time and the inclination, please feel free to join
- Since we go over the Atlantic and Wonderwood bridges, each group will regroup after each of the bridges. There will be a rest stop at a gas station about 14 miles into the ride (near Monument and Mount Pleasant). In summer, we may add another rest stop later in the ride.
