Event Details

 

July 1, 2020 UPDATE: 

Dear Riders—

The date is set, the ride will go on. The Third Annual Ride for Tiny Town will take place on February 6, 2021. We hope it will be an in-person event with the appropriate precautions that we are all learning to live with to lessen the spread of Covid-19. As we progress toward the event date, we will be participating in rides in the area to learn to incorporate the safety measures necessary to protect our riders and our volunteers. Should we feel an in-person event is too risky, or if government guidelines prohibit it, we will switch to a virtual event that will allow individual riders to log miles on that day or during a set period to qualify for participation in the event.

 

Where

Our one-day event will begin and end at Mosaic Arena. Pedal off from Mosaic Arena, 2450 NE Roan Street, Arcadia, FL. There will be plenty of available parking at the Mosaic Arena, home of the ARCADIA All-Florida Championship RODEO.

Friday Night, February 5, 2021
