NFBC Mission Statement
Our mission as the North Florida Bicycle Club is to encourage all people to participate in bicycling–a fun activity that can be recreation, transportation, fitness and competition. We serve the North Florida community in promoting safer conditions for cyclists and other road/trail users. We are committed to support bicycling through social activities, education, leadership by example and civic involvement.
Our rides are structured so that you may start out at a comfortable level and progress as you gain experience.
We offer excellent Educational Skills classes that are taught by certified instructors to teach cyclists how to ride safely. If you are an experienced rider, you will find plenty of rides to challenge you.

NFBC at a Glance
Mileage totals are kept for members and posted on the Statistics page and in our newsletter - WheelSpeak, and we have a Century of the Month Club.
There is also a social aspect to our club as riders often gather after riding for socializing and food.
We host picnic rides during the year where we combine riding with grilling burgers and dogs in the summer months and host a Chili cook off with prizes in the cooler months.
There is a monthly general membership meeting with guest speakers on a variety of topics relating to cycling. The club also hosts an annual Christmas party.
