24th Annual Royal Palm Challenge
The Royal Palm Challenge is right around the corner. This is the 24th Royal Palm, an event that in the last 9 years has helped us raise over $30,000 for various local charities.
All pre and post ride activities will take place at 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 blocks to the river district in Fort Myers and enjoy local restaurants, bars and shopping.

CRBC Fundraising Ride/ Event
Registration is required
Payment in Full In Advance Or At Event
The safety of our participants and volunteers is our most important concern and if any of the threatening weather conditions are present the day of the event (tornado warning, tornado watch, thunderstorm, heavy rain or a hurricane decides to visit), the event may be delayed or canceled.
When weather conditions or other physical conditions present a danger to participants, such conditions fall under the label “acts of mother nature,” it will not result in refunding of any event entry fees or future event credits, since funds were already spent in preparation for your event day.
