Here is what you need to know about the 8th Annual Doc Hollywood Invitational:

It is free. Why? Doctor’s orders.

This is a drop ride. The ride is unsupported – you may get a flat tire in Northern Marion County. Be prepared.

If you are a whiner this is not the event for you. Michael J. Fox isn’t a whiner. No, he is just a big city doctor that falls in love with a small-town ambulance driver. We don’t hear him complaining, do we?

The early miles are neutral with a 2×2 paceline at 23-25mph. The ride will feature a store stop for a brief respite before resuming. The ride then increases speed for the final 30 miles into Micanopy.

The ride features many miles of limerock roads, but road bikes should suffice – bring your skills.

Riders are expected to follow the rules of the road at all times and are expected to be responsible members of the cycling community. Riders are expected to police themselves and help maintain positive relationships with all road users, landowners, and fellow riders.

We look forward to seeing you in Micanopy in February!
