Tour de Felasco


Saturday, January 14, 2023
Alachua, Florida

The Tour is almost here! Registration closes Wednesday at 11:59, so don’t wait. Early check-in will once again be held at Cypress & Grove,  6 p.m – 9 p.m. Friday. Regular check-in will open at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at the trailhead pavilion.

The route will be posted Friday evening – remember, much of the route utilizes trails not typically open to cyclists, so no pre-riding is allowed. The equestrian and hiking trails on the route are open only to registered riders on the day of the event, so bandits may be considered trespassing.

Lunch will once again be provided at the trailhead, featuring a selection of local restaurants and food trucks. Sag stops will be spaced throughout the route, with three sags (plus the lunch stop) for 50-mile riders, and an additional sag for the metric century.

Sponsor the Tour!

The Tour de Felasco is the primary annual fundraising event for the Friends of San Felasco. The proceeds from the Tour will be used to help us maintain and improve the trails throughout the Park and to provide funding to the Park to help preserve the incredible resource we have in this beautiful place.. Without your support, we would be unable to provide this much-needed help.

The Tour de Felasco is scheduled for Saturday, January 14, 2023, 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.
