Solid Advice from the Promoter, Jean N Megan Guzman:
“We do not make any claims as to road or traffic conditions. This is an “open roads” event with all of the risks involved. We ask that you please be aware of your physical/health limitations as you make your route decisions and be respectful of all traffic rules. We also ask that you refrain from littering or engaging in dangerous or disrespectful behaviors while riding through our friendly neighborhoods. We have beautiful gravel roads waiting for you! We hope to see you then.”
ALWAYS BE A STEWARD FOR GRAVEL CYCLING: Respect the roads, respect the locals, respect the land, respect your fellow cyclists.

For 2023, the event ran on November 4, 2023. Due to a clashing event with JOM’s North Florida Freeride Gravel Series (linked below), they rode the Laughing Donkey course the following weekend.
