The Tour de Felasco is scheduled for Saturday, January 13, 2018, with a rolling start time between 8:30 A.M. and 9:30 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. 

Registration

The registration fee is $75 (plus active.com fees) and includes a Tour t-shirt, park entrance fee, food at sag stops, lunch, post ride pizza and 1 free 16 oz. BEER.  Additional beer will be available for purchase with the proceeds going to the Friends of San Felasco in support of the park.
