HISTORY OF THE FRANK STARK CELEBRATION RIDE

Florida's longest held Gran Fondo style ride will be hosted by the Boca Raton Bicycle Club and located at TUNE CYCLES in East Boca Raton.  Donations will be used for Club programs such as Bikes for Tikes, helmet and light giveaways, safety initiatives, charity rides, training and special event rides, and community participation in bike and pedestrian improvements. The Club is a 501(c)(3) organization and the donations may be tax deductible.  The event is also supported by local bike shops; TUNE Cycles (host) and LC Tri Shop.

 

For 2024 we kept the event fees the same and will focus on safe escorted A1A rides by the Florida Highway Patrol, stocked rest stops and post event food and beer for everyone. This spectacular bike event is a collaborative community relationship between the Boca Raton Bicycle Club, TUNE CYCLES, Bill Bone Bike Law and many supporting sponsors.  This event is managed by Extreme Sports Production, Inc. (ESPtiming.com).
