On Sunday, November 6, 2021, Friends of A1A Scenic and Historic Coastal Byway presents the 10th Annual Spoonbills & Sprockets cycling tour along one of the nation's most beautiful highways. Participants can choose between three routes of varying lengths (the 100-mile Century Ride, the 72-mile Metric Century Ride or the 36-mile Half-Metric Century Ride) depending on their stamina and preference. These are all fully supported rides, with SAG support. Visit here to see route maps and to register.
In recent years, organizers have added a couple of rides so the whole family can participate — a 15-Mile Ride for beginners and a Tiny Tour for the youngest riders.
Participants may check in and pick up their pre-registration packets from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday, November 3, 2021, and from 6 to 9 a.m. Saturday, November 4, 2021, at the Coastal Policy Center, 9601 N. Ocean Shore Blvd. in Marineland, FL 32080.
The start times for the races are 7 a.m. for the Century Ride and 7:30 a.m. for the Metric Century and the Half Metric Century rides. The 15-Mile Ride and a Tiny Tour Ride will begin at 9 a.m.
After the races on Sunday, participants are invited to attend a luncheon/reception at Marineland Dolphin Adventure from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tours of the attraction will be available to participants during these times.
