Route

Event Information

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.

Your entry fee includes:

  • Light breakfast at Allan Sheppard Park in Cocoa Beach for the ride start of both the 1-day and 2-day riders
    • E.g. fruits, bagels, pastries, juice, coffee
  • Event t-shirt (guaranteed only if registering before March 11th)
  • An embroidered ‘wheel dipper’ patch for those that cross the finish line
  • SAG sites (at mile 33.4, 87.1, 109.7, 127.8 and 147.2) with restrooms, food and drink
  • Roving SAG vehicles with mechanical support
  • An awesome full catered meal at ride finish from the Greek City Cafe
    • E.g. Steak, chicken and falafel wraps/pitas, salads, rice, greek desserts, drinks
  • Cue sheets, electronic maps and Garmin files, and road markings of our awesome route
  • List of convenience stores along route (included on cue sheet) to supplement your ride
  • Small luggage forwarded from start line to the finish
  • Small luggage forwarded to/from mid point hotel area drop-off point for 2-day riders

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.
