2018 Palatka Bicycle Weekend

This year's Palatka Bicycle Weekend is on April 14-15, 2018.

We have some exciting new changes from last year.

First of all, we will have a Meet & Greet with early check-in on Friday at a great local wine and beer bar - Uncork & Unwind.

We will be having the longer rides on Saturday ending the day with a Sunset Wine and Beer Cruise on the "City of Palatka". There is limited space so you will want to register early to get a seat.

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.

We are using CAAM and Race Roster for our registration.
