BFSC Ride Schedule - February 11 & 12

We wish our BFSC riders who are running on Sunday the 26.2 Run With Donna Finish Breast Cancer Half and Full Marathon a Great and Fun race.

With the running race Sunday, First Street though Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach will be closed for the running course, so riding your bike may be difficult riding to Ponte Vedra for the Sunday road ride. It is also forecast to be cold Sunday with 9:00 AM ride temperature around 38/40F. With the cold temperature, most likely there will be a small showing of road bike riders. There will be a second option mountain bike ride at Hanna Park at 9:00 AM.
