Pedal to the metal at the Endless Summer Watermelon Ride. The North Florida Bicycle Club invites cyclists of all skill levels to ride along routes (at 21, 32, 58, 78 and 103 miles) that wind through historic Fernandina Beach and the Talbot Islands State Parks. With an expected turnout of 900, you surely won’t be alone on a journey that includes snacks, rest stops, a catered lunch, mechanical support, motorcycle escorts, roving support teams and (natch!) ice cold watermelon.
Opens at 6:30 a.m. Sunday, September 11, Atlantic Recreation Center, Fernandina Beach, $65, for more info, go to nfbc.us.
