Singletrack Samurai's River To Sea Loop

EVENT IS SOLD OUT, Contact me to be added to the waiting list

With the Status of the Ferry still in jeopardy this year proves to be a challenging one for the River to Sea.

Plan is to start in DeLeon and pedal to Welaka for either camp at Fort Gates or Camp at Mud Springs. 

Day 2, we roll From Welaka and Ride all the Way to St Augustine for a late lunch. Then Moses Creek for a group camp. 

Day 3 Fort Matanzas National Forest, Old Brick Road, lunch in Bunnell and then wrap it up with Haw Creek, Heart Island and Lake Winona Road.

There will be some suprises I am sure. There may be a total change of the plan if I can secure a boat ride across the St Johns. BUT, this is the rough plan. We will definetely be going backwards and going north as the New Smyrna Taxi is still no operation.

Entries are limited to the first 20 Participants and the event will sell out.

St Patty's Day Bikepacking Overnight
Mar
17
to Mar 18

St Patty's Day Bikepacking Overnight

FREE EVENT

Ok folks
we will roll promptly at 5:15 pm with a stop at centrail 28 for beer and food
Unlike the past events, we are not going to call this a beginner trip but an intermediate level trip, let me explain why.

NO GEAR SHUTTLE.
Ride distance total will be less than 60 miles, will finalize and post the routes soon.

Riders who attend this ride will have to pack it in and pack it out.
No water expected at camp, possible filterable water, there will be a top off spot right before camp, we will use that and then pedal to camp. This means you will need to plan the water you will need for camp and then the water for next morning till we reach the stop for food in the morning.

IN the extreme case that someone just doesnt have shelter ad they want to attend, there is a spot we can camp at that has a shelter, BUT, I would rather pedal the 7 miles out to the remote camp that I want to take us too.

So be prepared, pony up and see you at the shop on March 17th.

We can get almost all the gear you need to bikepack,
Message me or come talk to me at the shop.

thanks

Karlos
