Strawberry Ride Is March 30

The Tampa Bay Freewheelers are pleased to present the 26th Annual Strawberry Century on March 30. The ride is called the "Strawberry Century", but there are four ride
distances of 20, 38, 62 or 100 miles. The ride offers a long-sleeved t-shirt,
hot breakfast, hot lunch, fully stocked SAG stops, mechanical support, vendor
displays, strawberry shortcake and door prize giveaways from the club's supporting
cycling businesses.

As always, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to worthy cycling-related causes. We are working on a few thousand dollars in door prizes for our pre-registered riders. Pre-registration deadline is March 17 and remained at a cost of $35. Visit us at for additional event details and to register online. Please note that day-of-ride registration increases to $40 and you are not gauranteed a long-sleeve t-shirt. We do order some extra ride t-shirts and these are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis until no longer available.

For you MS 150 registrants, this is a great tune-up for your MS 150 ride. The Freewheelers are working on getting a special door prize drawing just for you.
Out of Towners? A list of hotels offering discounted rates willl be posted on
our website as soon as the prices are finalized. You will easily be able to
ride your bike to the start from these Plant City hotels.

In town on Saturday AM? If you are in town on Saturday morning, come join us on
our Stanley ride (free for everyone). Details on the TBF website at

And there is an ice cream stop on the ride this year.
