Bike Florida invites people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the Palatka to St. Augustine Trail. Cyclists wanting a long ride can enjoy a 40-mile route that is fully SAG supported with lively rest stops in Hastings and Palatka. Kids of all ages and their families are welcome to ride, hike, walk, or run in a 1-15 mile holiday parade with Santa. Before the parade there will be bicycle decorating! Join the fun after the parade and distance ride decorating cookies! All rides begin and end at Armstrong Park Trailhead and the SEA Community 8th Annual Gullah Geechee Heritage Festival. This event is cohosted by VeloFest, North Florida Bicycle Club, Putnam Blueways & Trails CSO and Bike Florida. Sponsored by Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow.
