About This Activity

Gather your family members for a leisurely da Vinci Family Fun Ride to the beautiful Mosaic Boardwalk, a Picturesque Picasso Ride of 35 miles and a Mosaic Monet ride of 65 miles along the scenic back roads of southern Polk County.  Gently rolling roads take you across the Peace River Basin, through expansive citrus groves and around the old Florida backwoods. Come and ride your buns off!!

Event details and schedule

Registration 7:00am Ride Starts at 8:00am

Please park you vehicle at the Oaks Parking Lot. A GPS address for that is 395 S. Central Avenue. Do not park on Summerlin, because that road will be closed off for the Bloomin Arts Car Show. OR there is parking at the Suntrust Bank across from the Park.

Please NOTE: We try our very best to make sure that everyone gets a rider t-shirt. Shirts are ordered 7 days before the event. If you register BEFORE the order goes in, you will get a shirt. I always order EXTRA shirts and if I have one after the seven day order cut off you may NOT get a shirt because at that late date it is a guessing game as what extra sizes to get. I try my best to have enough for all riders.

Helmets are required for all riders!

The staging area is the same as last year, Ft. Blount Park which is on Main and Broadway. The tent will be on the southwest corner. There is a lot going on with the Bloomin Art Show, so parking is going to be a little tricky. The best place to park is going to be at the Oaks Parking lot. Look under parking details for GPS info.

Congrats to last years winner of the Artistic Motion Drawing, Lucas Kuebler, who is this year's poster person and featured cyclists! I hope he likes the logo!!! 

If you rode in the Bloomin Bike Ride or the Tour de Tow and you would like to comment please do so in the write a review section. Thanks, Trish

We will be giving away new bikes again to kids who other wise wouldn't be able to afford one. So far we have provided 100 bikes to kids in need in just four years. The POWER PEDALERS are the kids who will have a huge smile on their faces as we present them their new bikes. If you know of any one or company out there who would like to be a sponsor please let me know. The more money we have the more bikes we give away. At the Tour de Tow we gave away 10 bikes. Now that is COOL!

Ride Support! Yes, every route has a SAG vehicle following to be there in case you need us. It will have drinks, snacks, tubes and a pump. Everyone will receive a ride map that will have a number on it for emergencies or problems.

This cycling tour is suitable for a variety of skill levels.  Rest stops will have plenty of fluids and refueling munchies.  Ride T-shirts for all registered riders and will try our hardest not to run out.  Production times sometimes prevent an accurate count for t-shirts but will make every effort to accommodate. Bloomin Art Show will be in full bloom on Main Street downtown. Call or email for list of lodging options.  See ya on the 7th.
