Fit & Fuel Iron Joe Turkey Ride

26 November 2017


The Fit & Fuel Iron Joe Turkey Ride is Naples’ Sunday-after-Thanksgiving cycling tradition.  In its 12th year, the event is named in honor of bicycle advocate and world-class Iron Man athlete Joe Bonness who was one of the original founders and presidents of Naples Pathways Coalition. 

The revelry begins and ends in the side lot of Fit & Fuel Bicycle Café in the Pavilion Shopping Center on Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples, FL.

There are fully supported rides for all levels – 62 , 30, 20 miles -  and a 5 mile Family Fun Ride with a Kids bike safety clinic preceding it. Included in the fee are an ice cold beer or beverage, a great band, and a delicious lunch by Johnsonville Sausage Marketplace and Food & Thought Organic Café.

Kids 12 years and under are FREE with a paid adult. 

Proceeds from the event help fund the work of the Naples Pathways Coalition.

Weather Cancellation Policies

This is a Rain or Shine event.  No refunds or transfers.

The safety of our participants and volunteers is our most important concern and if any of the threatening weather conditions are present the day of the event (tornado warning, tornado watch, thunderstorm, heavy rain or a hurricane decides to visit), the event may be delayed or canceled.

When weather conditions or other physical conditions present a danger to participants, such conditions fall under the label “acts of mother nature,” it will not result in refunding of any event entry fees or future event credits, since funds were already spent in preparation for your event day.
