NFBC members only ride. Non-members may try 3 NFBC rides before joining. You must sign the ride waiver to participate in the ride and to earn club points and mileage. There will be a Safety Briefing Meeting 10 minutes before the start of the ride. Please arrive at the starting point early enough to get set up before the pre-ride meeting. Helmets required on all NFBC rides.
*UPDATE* The construction near the airport has finished. The route has been updated!
The JAX GIRO ride starts at the I-95 Jacksonville Airport Exit. The ride circles past the airport then up to Callahan and over to Yulee before returning to the start near the airport.
Because this ride starts near I-95 it is easy to travel to the start from east, south, west or north Jacksonville. For example it takes less than 40 minutes to travel from the I-95/I-295 on the Southside to the start of this ride.
The course takes back roads through the airport. Most of the subsequent roads on this route have either wide shoulders or bike lanes. There are also very few stop lights or stop signs.
Come try out this ride.
