Florida Bicycle Safari

Can I register at the event?

Yes! You can register on site for the three-day Safari and you can register on site for the six-day Safari if it is not sold out. T-shirts for on-site registrations are not guaranteed and will be distributed first come, first served. There is a $25 late fee for registration after March 10th.

What will the weather be like?

We never really know, but average temperature during the day is in the 70s, nights are in the 50s. But Safari is anything but average! Prepare for both hot and cold. Rain is always a possibility, so please pack accordingly.

How do I get my bike to Safari?

If you are unable to drive your bike to Safari, we can help! For a fee, we will receive, unpack and assemble your bike(s) if you so desire, as well as disassemble, pack, and ship it back to you once Safari is over. Contact the ride director at floridabicyclesafari@floridafreewheelers.com for additional information.

Can I bring my RV? Is there electricity? Hookups?

There is a charge for RV's if you want water and electricity. Hookups are limited, so reserve early. There is no charge in Live Oak if you do not need hookups. Contact: floridabicyclesafari@floridafreewheelers.com for availability.

What are the RV fees?

RV parking at Live Oak with full hookups (limit 25) - $60 for 3 days / $120 for 6 days
RV parking without hookups - $0.

What if I am not a camper, are there hotels nearby? Is there transportation to/from?

There are hotels in Live Oak relatively close to the Suwannee County Fairgrounds. There will not be transportation provided between hotels and ride headquarters.

Is there support on the biking route?

Safari has SAG vehicles that travel the route to assist stranded cyclists. Floor pumps, water, limited food and a first aid kit will be in the vans. Bring your own tubes, tire levers, etc. and be able to change your flat or repair your vehicle on the road yourself. Mechanics are available for repairs that you cannot perform yourself, but you might have to wait to connect with them at a rest stop or back at camp. Labor is free for minor repairs, and you will only be charged for parts. Get your bike tuned up before heading to Safari! Safari has plenty of rest stops along the route with drinks and snacks. Rest stops will be noted on your maps, cue sheets, and GPS files.
