An early start, coinciding with the DST EST time change

“Celebrate the return of daylight saving time with a long day in the saddle. This route combines portions of our local series events – Doc Hollywood, Heartbreaker, Tour of the Quilt Country, and Strada Bellamy – to produce one beautifully hellish ride covering 200 miles. Hell of the NorFla contains 35+ unpaved sectors ranging from less than 0.5 miles to several over 10 miles.” – Hell of the NorFLA – Part of the North Florida Freeride Gravel Series
