18 miles - East Palatka Trail Ride - start at 8:00am

This year we're proud to offer a new route designed specifically for those who prefer shorter rides and those who are leery of riding out on the road.  This route is a paved, Trail Only cruise that picks up the old railroad line in East Palatka and follows it to the county line. We'll have a rest stop set up for you at the turnaround to top up your water bottle and grab a snack before your ride back.

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.

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.
