14 mile “Sonnet” ride: Begins at Port Mayaca and continues north until reaching the 7 mile marker where riders will loop around and return to Port Mayaca. This is a relaxing, fun ride that is appropriate for beginners.

34 mile “Short Story” ride: Begins at Port Mayaca. Cyclists will head north until reaching the Nubbin Slough locks (half way point) where an aid station will be setup. Riders will loop around and return to Port Mayaca. This is a route for beginners who want to challenge themselves a bit.

68 mile “Classic” ride (The Metric Century Plus): Riders will take the challenge of riding the Medium ride twice. Riders will begin at Port Mayaca, head north reaching Nubbin Slough and return to Port Mayaca. After a quick water stop they will start the challenge again. As with both the Sonnet and the Short Story ride, this ride will take place entirely on the dike, a traffic-free paved course alongside the lake. This route is for intermediate cyclists with faster road bikes or cross-over bikes.

115 mile “Epic” ride (Full Loop): Starts and finishes in Port Mayaca and cyclists will loop the lake in a clockwise direction. This route is for experienced cyclists only, those who regularly ride 100 miles per week and are able to spend all day on their bikes with the majority of the time on roads with car and truck traffic. These expert cyclists will be riding well-fitted road bikes in good maintenance or time-trial, tri-bikes and are comfortable drafting and riding in pelotons. Although support vehicles will be available, Full Loop riders are expected to be self-sufficient in terms of water, food, flat repair and basic cycling maintenance. When on the road, Epic Full Loop riders should respect and abide by all traffic rules. 

Your participation helps fund the vital programs of the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County!
