Cycling Cross Florida 167 Mile Challenge Ride for Virtual Riders

You MUST Register to receive the confirmation email with the link to participate in this group to Ride for a Reason!

There are two ways to complete this challenge: 1 Long Day OR 2 Shorter Days

1 Day ~ 12 Hour Ride (4/18)

2 Days ~ 6 Hour Rides (4/18 & 4/19)

Not canceling this amazing annual event with our great community partner, Warriors4Life, because of the virus. We can ride inside, but together thanks to Zoom! We are resilient and will make this ride a virtual 167-mile tour across Florida, from Cocoa Beach to Bayport, on the Gulf Coast. You will not only be challenging yourself but also the goal of helping veterans cope with physical and psychological wounds, through cycling. That is nearly 170 miles from East to West! They will be virtually starting in Cocoa Beach, FL and biking the journey west side of the state, ending in Bayport, FL.

We can not let the need to physically space out and isolate make an already vulnerable group with physical and emotional trauma feel more alone. We are never alone! Together we shall use every link of a chain, hold us together and rise above veteran suicide and trauma.

What to Expect: A Finisher Medal for anyone who meets the challenge!

You must have your own trainer and bike of any kind to take part at the highest level (can work together to help those in need to find a trainer local to you through Facebook Marketplace, local bike shops, or from friends of the cycling world. No smart trainers required... any rollers or stands work, provided you have a speed and cadence sensor on your bike (ask for details from our staff)!

Exciting to ride with hundreds of online riders in this virtual Peloton ride. Zoom Room will have you interacting with the other riders, perhaps from around the world.

Together, Adaptive Adventures Cycling and Warriors 4 Life is dedicated to our nation's wounded veterans and their families, promoting recovery through a healthy active lifestyle, self-awareness, and empowerment.
