NFBC Charity Ride Team
CHARITY RIDE TEAM
The Charity Ride Team was created to represent the North Florida Bicycle Club in local charity rides. It is hoped that the Charity Ride Team will promote camaraderie among the club’s members while "cycling for a cause", and also provide greater exposure of the North Florida Bicycle Club and its events such as the Tour de Forts and Endless Summer Watermelon Ride.
This team is appropriate for all levels of cyclists from beginner to experienced. There are mileage options available that are appropriate for any style of bicycle (touring, mountain, road, time trial, etc). Some of these rides also include options for running, triathlon, and family-friendly events.
Club Jerseys are required to earn club points and mileage. See Requirements and Rules for more details. The schedule of upcoming events is below.
Being a member of the NFBC Charity Ride Team is easy and open to all NFBC members. You must:
1) Register for the ride and choose team "North Florida Bicycle Club".
2) Wear an NFBC club or major event jersey during the event.
3) Sign the NFBC Charity Ride Team ride sheet and follow all NFBC ride rules.
