Kids on Bikes
Welcome to Capital City Cyclists, a recreational bike club and 501(c)3 non-profit bicycle advocacy organization for the Florida Capital region.
Spaghetti 100 Registration has opened
This iconic Spaghetti 100 ride starts at the Miccosukee Community Center and rides into the scenic back country of North Florida and South Georgia. There are five ride options, which include a full century (100 miles), a metric century (67 miles), and a 35 mile route on paved roads, and 68 mile (epic) and 40 mile (Epicette) routes mostly on dirt roads. The longer road routes take riders through historic Thomasville and Boston in Georgia and then through Monticello in Florida. The shorter route takes riders to Monticello and back, mostly via beautiful and quiet roads through the forest. The dirt routes are non-technical, following the beautiful canopied clay roads through the heart of classic Red Hills plantation country.
You'll find well-stocked rest stops along the way, and there is mechanical, medical, and SAG support.
Again this year, the first male and female riders to complete the 100 mile road and the 68 mile dirt ride will be crowned Tallahassee World Champion with a World Champion jersey!
The Spaghetti 100 funds our Kids on Bike program, which teaches hundreds of elementary school children how to ride a bike and ride it safely in traffic. It also helps to support our Trips for Kids chapter, which takes disadvantaged youth on bike rides on our local trails. So please register, or consider making a donation.
Sometimes it's good to complain !
Lights that don't turn green for you? Often the in-pavement detection loop does not detect you, either because the sensitivity is set too low, or you do not know where the sweetspot is for the loop to detect your rims.
Put your frustration into a citizen complaint on DigiTally
. That'll help things to change! We really would like to see better Bicycle Detection
