Central Park In Palm Coast To Host Flagler Fondo Cycling Festival

By on November 2, 2017 in WNDB News

Palm Coast, FL – The City of Palm Coast is hosting a cycling festival this weekend called the Flagler Fondo.

The festival will take place at Central Park in Palm Coast on November 3 through November 5. At 7:30 AM on Saturday, Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) and Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney will escort the bike rides.

A Kids Bicycle Rodeo and Safety demo will be presented by the Sheriff’s Police Athletic League (PAL) and Bike Patrol Unit. There, kids 12 and under will be able to get their bikes inspected by Flagler Beach Bike, Run & Fun. Registration for that event will begin at 9:30 AM to 10 AM and there will be instruction and challenges until 12 PM.

The Daytona Beach Bicycle Club, FCSO and the Flagler County Kiwanis Club will be providing free helmet fittings and helmets. PAL will also host several cycling games and activities. Families will have the opportunity to attend “Pedaling with Patrol,” a bike ride alongside local law enforcement, after the Bike Rodeo.

7th- Day ReCYCLEry is partnering with Flagler Fondo to repair donated bikes to give them out to those in need. Attendees are encouraged to bring an old or new bike to donate to the program. All bikes collected will be given back out to the Flagler County community.

“We’ve been looking forward to this event for a long time,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “It was originally scheduled for September but was interrupted by Hurricane Irma. This is a great opportunity to bring the community together with law enforcement and enjoy an exciting community event. I know our Bike Patrol is looking forward to interacting with the kids and teaching them about bike safety.”
