The proceeds from this unique ride benefit bicycle advocacy, many national charities, and bicycle advocacy groups on a local, state, and national level. The Boca Raton Bicycle Club has a number of on-going programs to teach bicycle and helmet safety to elementary students, police escorted Tour of Boca bike rides to promote bike handling and safety on the open road, and the distribution of literature promoting good cycling habits to the entire bicycling community.
The Frank Stark Ride has been a tradition for the last 27 years. It features a scenic ride along the Atlantic coast from Boca Raton to the mansions in Palm Beach.
Roads are recently paved and are extra smooth.
Clearly marked route along scenic A1A.
Rest stops with lots of food.
Full SAG Support during the rides.
Iced towels for all riders.
Who was Frank Stark? Frank Stark was a member of the Boca Raton Bicycle Club and a former airline pilot, forced to retire because of quadruple by-pass heart surgery and
two heart attacks.
As part of his recovery, Frank took up cycling and celebrated his birthday by riding a mile for each year of his age. “It was just me, the bike and the road,” Frank said. “I wanted to see if I could do it.” Each year a few more friends from the club would join in and in recent years we have had as many as 700 riders. Frank ultimately succumbed to heart failure so we continue this annual
event in honor of him. He would want us to keep riding for our health
and for the fun of it.
Please note that all registrations are final and refunds will not be given. We ride in rain or shine.
