103 miles - Share the Road Century - start at 7:30am

This year our century runs from Palatka south through San Mateo, Pomona Park, Welaka, Georgetown and Crescent City before returning via Pomona Park, San Mateo and Hastings. Cyclists will enjoy scenic country roads as they travel past two state forests and too many lakes to count. We'll feature rest stops at Lake Broward and Lake Stella, along with several more to keep your bottles and spirits topped up as you tour beautiful Putnam County!

Our Metric Century follows a similar route as the full Century stopping at lovely Lake Broward before turning back towards the farms and fields of Hastings. Cyclists will finish their metric century along the newly completed East Palatka section of the Palatka - St. Augustine Trail.

23 miles - Buckman Lock Tour - start at 8:00am

Looking for something more than just a bike ride? Then the Buckman Lock Tour might just be for you! After leaving the Palatka waterfront this tour rolls by two additional Bartram sites - Ravine Gardens and Spalding's Lower Store - before reaching the Buckman Lock. Upon arriving at Buckman, cyclists will be treated to a tour of the Lock and a well stocked rest stop before returning to Palatka. 

Those wanting even more history on their ride can take a beautiful 2 mile diversion through the Ravine Gardens State Park (the park entry fee is included in your registration) and visit the Waterworks/Puc Puggy Trail Bartram site.

Sunday - April 15, 2018

On Sunday, we are introducing Road and River rides. We will use the "City of Palatka" river boat in conjunction with our bicycle rides which will start in Welaka. There are several options:

1 - Drive your bike to Welaka, load it on the bike trailer, board the "City of Palatka" for a lovely 2 hour trip on the the St. John's River, arriving at Renegades in time for lunch. Then bicycle either 25 or 50 miles back to Welaka on a supported ride. It's an extra $35 for the boat ride.

2 - Drive your bike to Welaka, cycle 25 or 50 miles on the supported route ending at Renegades for lunch. After lunch, load your bike on the trailer and board the "City of Palatka" for a leisurely trip back to Welaka on the St. Johns River where you will find your bicycle safe and sound. It's an extra $35 for the boat ride.

3 - Board the "City of Palatka" early in the morning with your bicycle for a ride to Welaka. Ride 25 or 50 miles to Renegades for lunch, ride 25 or 50 miles back to Welaka (or take the short 6 mile short-cut) to then board the boat with your bike for the trip back to Palatka. It's an extra $55 for the round trip from Palatka to Welaka.

4 - Drive down to Welaka with your bike, cycle either the 50 or 25 miles to Renegades for lunch, cycle back to Welaka - i.e. no boat ride.

There is limited space on the boat so early registrants will get the space on the boat.


26 miles - Welaka to Renegades - start at 8:30am

This ride will take you along country roads across Putnam County to Crescent City where you can stop at the rest stop on beautiful Lake Stella. Then continue back across the county and end at Renegades for a buffet lunch on the St. Johns River. You can then elect to ride back to Welaka the same way you came or add a 50 mile ride OR take the river boat back to Welaka.
