The annual Cross Florida Ride is Florida’s most epic event…170 miles from the ocean waters of Cocoa Beach to the western edge along Florida’s Gulf Coast.
The new Cross Florida Ride jersey incorporates some of the elements that make this ride so memorable. From the color palette with black representing the pre-dawn staging in the morning darkness and orange representing the morning sun’s orange glow at the ride start to the setting sun at the end of the day.
The crisp and clean new logo is a reflection of Cross Florida Ride's classic route markings, with the familiar X from the route markings and the new gear that represents your bicycle as the vehicle that takes you on this epic ride.
Order your new Cross Florida Ride jersey today so you can wear it while you create new memories with your old and new Cross Florida Ride teammates.
Jerseys ordered and paid for from the first order will be tentatively available for pickup by the day of the event or sooner unless there is a delay from the manufacturer. Backordered jerseys will be available at a future date to be determined.
We will be hosting riders from all over the country in this unique event. We're taking you over 170 miles on quiet back country roads.
We start in Cocoa Beach at Alan Shepard Park at the eastern terminus of SR-520, and will be traveling a well-marked route south of the metro Orlando area, then through hilly Pasco county, and finishing up at the beautiful Bayport Park on the Gulf coast.
Please understand that we have taken great care to keep the route at it's current length yet try to avoid 'hazardous routes,' but in some rural areas there are limited choices if any at all.
As with any bike event, exercise caution when riding public roads and obey all traffic laws.
Please be prepared because this won't be like your typical century ride. There will be four (4) SAG stops on the route: the first two are manned and provide food and drinks, and the last two are unmanned and provide drinks only.
You will also have support from roving SAG vehicles that can provide mechanical support as well as can SAG you to the finish line. You may need to depend on convenience stores along the route for some of your food and hydration, so we will provide a list of convenience stores located along the route along with your cue sheet and map so you can plan your stops accordingly.
For more details see the rider information page.
Due to the large volume of riders, the ride will be escorted by the Sheriff's Department from the start of the ride until SR520 and I95.
No riders are to pass the motor unit during the escort.
Remember this is not a race and will not be timed. The route will be open to traffic and riders must obey all traffic laws.
We want to continue a good reputation with residents of the communities we pass through and with the police so please be courteous and above all ride safe.
