Sponsor the Tour
The Tour de Felasco is the primary annual fundraising event for the Friends of San Felasco, Inc. Last year, in addition to providing regular maintenance of the trail system, we were also able to purchase critical equipment for the park such as chain saws, tools, and utility vehicles. Without your support, we would be unable to provide this much-needed help.
About the Tour
The Tour de Felasco is scheduled for Saturday, January 11, 2020, with a rolling start time between 7:30 A.M. and 8:30 A.M.
This mountain bicycling event will challenge each rider with a tour through one of North Florida’s most diverse ecological and geological preserves. The Tour de Felasco is presented by the Friends of San Felasco, Inc., a non-profit volunteer Citizen Support Organization (CSO) dedicated to supporting the trail system and other efforts within the park, and this event is the main fundraiser for the CSO.
The Tour is not a race, but it is an endurance event through a challenging series of trails. Many people compare this ride to the difficulty level of a hilly century (100 mile) road bicycle route, and we recommend you prepare accordingly. The Tour route will test your bike skills and endurance with rolling hills, short climbs, sinkholes, creek crossings, and log bridges. Experience areas of the park open to bikes only for the Tour, while supporting the CSO’s efforts to improve this magnificent trail system.
The Tour covers either 50 miles or a metric century of 62 miles (your choice) without crossing a single paved road. There’s a time cutoff for the metric century option. Any rider who meets the cutoff time is invited to extend the ride. Participants who want a shorter tour will be able to exit after lunch for a 25-35 mile ride.
Please observe the following:
- Only pre-registered riders are accepted. No day of event registration will be available. The park will be closed to the general public on Tour day.
- Registrations can be transferred to another rider (via Active.com) through 12/31/18. A 15% transfer fee will be applied. No refunds.
- Event proceeds rain or shine.
- Helmets are mandatory.
- Pets aren’t allowed.
Sag Stops are posted about every 15 miles. Porta-potties are provided along the route. Volunteer technicians can handle minor problems, but you should be prepared and have your bike in good working order before you arrive. We recommend you carry a cell phone, and at the rider start, a number will be provided for you to call if you encounter difficulty.
