HomeRoyal Palm Challenge

 
 


The Royal Palm Challenge is right around the corner. This is the 22nd annual RPC, an event that in the last 7 years has helped us raise over $25,000 for various charities.

All pre and post ride activities will take place at a new venue this year, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation Collaboratory. It's located in downtown Fort Myers at 2031 Jackson Street. Once a historic train station, the Collaboratory is an indoor/outdoor space for public use with beautiful shade trees and all modern facilities.

After the Royal Palm Challenge, you can head just a few block to the river district in Fort Myers and enjoy local restaurants, bars and shopping.

Your registration includes:
Completely new routes, a chance to explore more of rural Lee County
Swag, including a special pair of cycling socks just for this event (first 200 guaranteed!)
Fully stocked rest stops and roving SAG wagon on the routes
Post ride entertainment and food
Kids 15 and under free with one registered adult
