NFBC members only ride. Non-members may try 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. Front & Rear Lights are required. Helmets are required on all NFBC rides. There need to be at least two participants for this to be an official NFBC ride.
2024 NFBC Century-A-Month Series
North Florida Bicycle Club offers and tracks a century-distance challenge. An award is given to all members who have completed at least one century a month for 12 consecutive months at any time since awards were last awarded. In other words, you do not need to start the challenge in January; you can complete the challenge within any twelve consecutive months.
The Century Challenge is a separate competition from the NFBC mileage competition.
Centuries may be ridden on non-club rides, club rides that offer a century option, or as part of a club ride extended to reach century status.
Starting in January, we are creating the 2024 NFBC Century-A-Month Series to increase interest in the challenge. Each month, we will hold at least one official NFBC Century Ride. The ride will be held on a weekend or holiday. While we may have A-pace riders, we will always offer a B-pace option. The Century Ride will include existing rides, including the New Year YOYO Ride, Jeanne’s Azalea Ride, Clyde’s Rides, and the Summer YOYO Ride. It will also include new rides.
The Century-A-Month Series is just an option for those who prefer to ride in groups. If you cannot attend a series ride, you can still complete the challenge that month by riding a non-club century or an NFBC Travel Team Century.
ride of the series will be the NFBC DOUBLE SMOOTIE CENTURY. This ride will depart at 7AM from Armstrong Park . It will go 20 miles to Publix Murabella by 8:30 AM. From 9AM it will join the regular 53 miles World Golf Smoothie Ride targeting to be back at Publix Murabella by 11:30AM. At NOON we will ride another 27 miles back to Armstrong Park.
It may be dark at 7AM so all riders must have front and back lights.
