|About This Event|
The St. Pete Bike Club is offering a FULL WEEKEND of fun, with events around town, a special guest, and, of course, at least FOUR different length rides just south of St. Pete through mostly rural areas of Manatee County, including some of the PRETTIEST riding in the area.
On Saturday morning, Classic registrants can join us for our club rides that feature various speeds (16 mph – 26+ mph), including a 45-mile ride to Fort De Soto, with its 20 miles of interrupted riding.
You’ll have the chance to experience some of the finest riding in Florida with new and old friends. Riders will often break into groups of matching abilities, with some riders employing the “smell the roses” approach and others challenging themselves with more spirited efforts. Our goal is to enjoy the surroundings and cherish the company. It’s all about FUN.
Rides are 20, 36, 60 and 100 miles. We’ll have plenty of rest stops with food, drinks and port-a-potties. Support vehicles will be dispatched to anyone needing assistance during the ride. The Classic is open to both SPBC members and non-members alike. Link to MAPS.
Staged in February, The Classic takes advantage of usually PERFECT WEATHER (avg. high 70 degrees) and allows more of our “snow bird” friends to join in the fun!)We’ll leave from the Manatee River Fairgrounds after a light BREAKFAST and COFFEE. After the rides, enjoy a catered LUNCH, along with artisan craft BEER, compliments of the award-winning Pinellas Ale Works, as well as music and other festivities.
Some of the proceeds for The Classic will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Advanced registration will be online ONLY. No processing fee. No mail-in registrations.
Event day registration is available at a higher price. And we’ll have a special discount that includes the ride registration and new club membership. Start times, etc. are coming soon.
So mark Feb 9 and 10, 2019 on your calendars for THE SPBC CYCLING CLASSIC weekend.
