Club Ride
Registration is not Required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
You must sign the ride sheet/waiver to participate in the ride and to earn club points and mileage. There will be a Pre-Ride 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 are required on all NFBC rides.

Every year we usher in the New Year with the NFBC all-time club favorite, the YOYO ride on January 1.  

The 55 & 100 miles routes are available for levels A & B.  The 30-mile route (up and down the rail trail) is open to all riders. The 30-mile route will start at the same time as the longer routes. Len Burroughs will be leading the 30-mile ride which will stay on the Jacksonville Baldwin Trail.  
The 55 miles travels along with the longer routes but heads back at MacClenny via 90 & the rail trail. At MacClenny the 100-mile route heads north to the southernmost crossing into Georgia. (You can make your final 100-mile or 55-mile decision at MacClenny.)

Then 100-mile route will take you along some of the nicest and less traveled roads in the beautiful southernmost part of Georgia. The 100-mile ride leader will be Jonathan Tomassetti. If there are B riders planning to ride 100 miles, Jonathan will ride with the B riders.

2022 New Year YOYO ride
The picture above is the 100-mile riders at the State Line Store near the FL-GA boarder on 1-1-2022. We take the same picture every year.

1-2021 YOYO ride
 This is in 2021, it was quite warm. 

1-2016 YOYO ride  
Here we are five years earlier on 1-1-2016. It was a semi-warm day. 

1-2020 YOYO Ride
This picture is the 1-1-2020 start of the YOYO ride.  It was a cold day that year, but we still had plenty of riders. 

By the way, this ride is called the YOYO ride because on New Year's Day we are never sure which stores will be open and there is no sag wagon. You're On Your Own.  So, bring enough food and drink to sustain you through the ride.
Of course, there is water along the rail trail and the Wal-Mart that we pass in MacClenny is always open.
