Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PALM COAST, Fla. - Apr 16, 2018 - The Rotary Club of Flagler Beach is excited to host their 15th Annual Cycle Flagler Ride for Rotary charity event this coming May 6th, 2018. The event supports Rotary’s local and international projects. The start – or ‘kickstands up’, as well as the post-event festivities and food, will take place at the Flagler Executive Airport. The Airport is located at 201 Airport Rd, Palm Coast.
“We have cyclists tell us that this is their favorite ride,” said Flagler Beach Rotary President Amanda Bailey. “The sponsors and participants tell us that they feel good about supporting this event because they know that their contributions go toward doing good in our community and in the world – besides that, it’s a lot of fun,” Amanda added.
Last year, the post-event food was provided by the chef and some of the residents from WARM (Women Assisting Recovering Mothers), located in Bunnell. “The feedback on the food was incredible,” said Amanda. “Everyone kept commenting about it,” she added. The WARM team will once again be providing food after the event.
Cycle Flagler will kick off at 8:00 am (with an optional 7:00 am start for Century riders) at the Flagler Executive Airport and will offer a variety of ride distances ranging from 25 – 100 miles through some of the area’s most scenic roads. Registration and sponsorship opportunities for both events are available at flaglerbeachrotary.org. Day before packet pickup is Sat, May 5 from 4-6 pm at the Flagler County Executive Airport: 201 Airport Road, Palm Coast, FL 32164.
The event is expected to attract cyclists from throughout Florida and beyond. The well-established event has become a not-to-be-missed ride for both local cyclists and visitors who travel from many states to participate. The event’s SAG stops are also well-known for providing top-notch food and drinks, as well as encouragement and cheer, during the ride.
