BFSC Labor Day Weekend Ride Schedule - Sept 1, 2 & 3 - Sunday Amelia Island and Monday Labor Day Ride

Labor Day Holiday Weekend is here!! Wow summer is almost over, how quickly time flies by when you are having fun.

BFSC will have 3 days of scheduled bike rides.

The traditional Saturday ride.

Sunday, September 2nd, BFSC Sunday’s Ride is to Amelia Island. We will catch the 8:30 AM Ferry, 7:30 AM from the Lodge.

The Mayport Ferry has received funding to run for ONE more year to allow the Ferry Commission to develop a long-range plan for funding the Ferry long term. There are several grants available for Ferries in the US, and the Ferry Commission is going to apply for these grants.

Monday, September 3rd. Labor Day Holiday, 8:00 AM ride from the Lodge. This will be a traditional group ride. Most likely this will be our short 40 mile route so riders can get back home and enjoy other Labor Day activities.

BFSC Asking for Support for Hit & Run Injured Cyclist Lorin Leuthold. If you would like to make a donation this weekend on our BFSC bike rides, you can give your money to Kathy Horton, Rebekah Hope or Robert Buck.
