“Yes, we know what Fleche means and this is not exactly one of those. But who wants to find their way back to the start after 55-75 miles of hard mixed surface riding? Not us. So we have two routes on offer that get you back to the parking area without a shuttle bus. It’s October and that likely means continuing hot weather – so no mega mileage here, yet that may only mean more pace injected. Who knows?” – La Fleche Willistonne, part of the North Florida Freeride Gravel Series
The second annual La Fleche Willistonne is part of the long-standing North Florida Freeride Gravel Series, going into its 12th year of operations in 2023. All events are 100% free. Read more about the NFFGS below, and at the official Facebook Page.
