Our Chapter will participate in The EVERGLADES BICYCLE CLUB’s annual fall-classic bike ride and festival on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. The Chapter will be a main Rest Stop Sponsor, have a tent at the event and have a team of riders. Our Chapter Members, Firms, Business Partners and local vendors can participate by:
- Being a volunteer at the Rest Stop or Chapter Tent
- Members/Firm Employees/Business Partners can participate in the ride on the South Florida Chapter Team
- Firms/Business Partners can enroll individual teams to participate in the ride
Proceeds from the event will go to Achilles International FREEDOM TEAM OF WOUNDED VETERANS.
The Achilles International Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans is made up of amputees, paraplegics and quadriplegics who train and compete in mainstream marathons and cycling events on hand-pedaled tri-cycles.
The Freedom Ride begins with a lap around the Speedway track and all rides include an exclusive a loop through the Homestead Air Reserve Base. Cyclists in South Florida and around the country are invited! Routes include 10, 25, 41, 62 and 100 miles courses. The century & metric century head to Key Largo and back. Routes are SAG supported. The local chapter of the Honda Gold Wings Motorcycle Club will provide traffic calming. Rest stops and lunch are included with registration.
Please distribute the information to your firm employees – you would be surprised at how many participate in these cycling events.
The FAMILY FESTIVAL starts on the Speedway grounds at 10 am with:
Strider no-pedals-bike balance-obstacle course for toddlers & children 18-months to 5 years old
Bike-Safety Rodeo for middle-school children, courtesy University of Miami BikeSafe
FREE admission to motorcycle racing inside the Speedway; NASCAR Pace Car & Show Car on display
Music, Food, Fun!
Our Chapter’s involvement with the Freedom Ride will allow our members, business partners, firm members and local vendors to spend a day serving food to the anticipated 1000 + riders, informing the general public of our Chapter at our tent and riding bikes together in the South Florida area – while at the same time raising money for Achilles International FREEDOM TEAM OF WOUNDED VETERANS.
