Mt. Acosta Classic - February 16 (an afternoon ride!)
Challenge yourself to ride as many laps of the Acosta Bridge as you can while supporting the Jared Bynum Scholarship Foundation supporting our local youth in Northeast Florida. On this short and completely closed bridge course, you can take your rest breaks at any point on the course. Last year, I even took a break at the top of the bridge to snap a photo and grab an extra cup of gatorade. This event is particularly well-suited to spectators, so bring your cheerleaders! Don’t forget to wear your NFBC jersey and sign in at the club tent to earn club miles! Registration fees start at $35 for the 1 lap bridge walk up to $80 for the 3 hour challenge (yes, you can still take as many breaks as you want between laps). No additional fundraising required.
