NFBC Charity Ride Team
CHARITY RIDE TEAM
The Charity Ride Team was created to represent the North Florida Bicycle Club in local charity rides. It is hoped that the Charity Ride Team will promote camaraderie among the club’s members while "cycling for a cause", and also provide greater exposure of the North Florida Bicycle Club and its events such as the Tour de Forts and Endless Summer Watermelon Ride.
This team is appropriate for all levels of cyclists from beginner to experienced. There are mileage options available that are appropriate for any style of bicycle (touring, mountain, road, time trial, etc). Some of these rides also include options for running, triathlon, and family-friendly events.
Club Jerseys are required to earn club points and mileage. See Requirements and Rules for more details. The schedule of upcoming events is below.

2024 UPCOMING EVENTS
We are basically restarting this in the club, therefore we are looking for suggestions that The Board of Directors will vote on to make them a Club Charity Ride. So if you have any ideas or suggestions please forward them to me at the email address below.
We encourage club members to join our Charity Ride Team and help us fundraise for these locally and nationally recognized charities. Please note that some of these rides will only require a registration fee and no additional fundraising. All monies contributed and raised will be associated with the North Florida Bicycle Club and the individual fundraiser.
Most fundraising is tax-deductible!
Mt. Acosta Classic - Not sure this is happening for 2024, if it is I will update this.
Challenge yourself to ride as many laps of the Acosta Bridge as you can while supporting the Jared Bynum Scholarship Foundation supporting our local youth in Northeast Florida. On this short and completely closed bridge course, you can take your rest breaks at any point on the course. This event is particularly well-suited to spectators, so bring your cheerleaders! Don’t forget to wear your NFBC jersey and sign in at the club tent to earn club miles! Registration fees for the 1 lap bridge walk up to the 3 hour challenge will be posted as soon as they are determined (yes, you can still take as many breaks as you want between laps). No additional fundraising required.
BikeMS Cycle to the Shore - October 5-6
This was the main charity event of 2023 and could be your month of October century ride! We ride from Ponte Vedra or Marineland to the Daytona Beach Hilton (a variety of routes if you don't want the big miles). We basically take over the Hilton and have a giant party on the patio with massages, free beer, great food, and fun. The next day, we all ride back to Ponte Vedra or Marineland where the party continues at the finish line. Don’t forget to wear your NFBC jersey and sign in at the club tent in Daytona Beach to earn club miles! More details to come soon! Registration fees start at $35 with an additional $250 in tax-deductible fundraising required.
