GFNY Florida race week activities take place in the historic Downtown Sebring. Join us on Friday & Saturday for pre-race group rides and race registration at the Sebring Civic Center.
The race starts at the Highlands County YMCA and heads west for a scenic loop through Central Florida’s tranquil and scenic nature.
Race along the closed-to-cars Hammock Road, followed by a closed-to-cars stretch on Route 66. Once you turn right off Route 66, you will start the 35-mile loop through orange groves and Florida’s scrub habitat on low-traffic and well paved roads. The course showcases thousands of acres of pristine cattle ranch land, most of which is preserved by the state of Florida under conservation easements. The Long Route riders repeat the loop a 2nd time.
You return back to Highlands County and Sebring via the same closed-to-cars stretch on Route 66.
Timing finish is at Wood Ave. You will get your medal & finisher photo there. A small recovery station with water, soda, ice and snacks will refuel you. From there, ride on the separated bike path aside Hammock Road for 1.7 miles back to the Highlands County YMCA, where festivities, post-race meal and awards ceremony will be awaiting you.
