HomeRoyal Palm Challenge



The Royal Palm Challenge is right around the corner. This is the 21st annual RPC, an event that in the last 5 years has helped us raise almost $20,000 for charity. This year, we have chosen to support the Florida Bicycle Association, which promotes safe cycling through education and legislation. Please click the link to their page to learn more.

Join our Saturday club rides of 32 or 42 miles, and then join us for the main event on Sunday. The Saturday rides will use different routes than Sunday.

All pre and post ride activities will take place at Fort Myers Brewing Company
12811 Commerce Lakes Dr. Suite 28, Fort Myers FL, 33913.

Registration includes:
Fully stocked rest stops and roving SAG wagon on the routes
Post ride entertainment and food both days
Kids 15 and under free with one registered adult
Swag bag for all participants
LCSO will be issuing "citations" for exceeding the 25mph speed limit in Saturday's speed trap event
