Cross Florida Individual Time Trial
The route is 250 miles of mixed terrain: Singletrack, forest road, paved roads, bike trails, double track and grassy abandoned easements. Typically the event includes the use of the Fort Gates Ferry in Welaka Florida. In the event the Ferry is not running, riders can expect a detour north Thru Palatka. The ride takes place on the Coast to Coast Northern Cross Florida route and can be ridden at anytime. The Second Saturday in December, Riders from all around gather for a grand depart and go at the route at the same time. Check back here for details on how to join the big show!!!
There will be no cue sheets provided for this route, only a GPX file and instructions on how to use said file. Riders/Runners are required to use a GPS, Garmin Etrex 20 or better is recommended.
Get the Route
Route creation is a tedious task that requires Annual involvement. We ask that folks make a minimal donation of $30 if you just want the route, 40$ if you want the route and the patch. The route gets sent as a google drive shared folder. You have to download the route out of the folder to utitlize the information. The folder includes:
- Route File GPX (need a program to open and view this file)
- Route Trail Guide(updated every year once a year)
- Route Waypoint files for relevant and key information.
- My Brain to pick information from
Make your payment as friends and family and in the notes include your mailing address if you paid for the patch. Patches are available while supplies last. I regularly check the account and send out information and share the file throughout the day, each and everyday. There may be delays if I am out scouting or riding, so please be patient. Dropping me a friendly reminder via email doesnt hurt!
Collect the patch
Every time you register for a ride with me...you get a patch designed by myself and a team of artist and collaborators...each patch has meaning and a story to it. There are limited quantities available of the 2017 Patch.. If you would like one Pay Pal me 7$, include your name and address in the notes and I will send it to you.
