About This Activity

The Hibiscus Ride will offer multiple routes all designed to highlight the beautiful scenery of Indian River County, including shore-line and lagoon views and historic neighborhoods.

The Hibiscus Ride will be distinguished by offering both an English Century (100 mile), and Metric Century (100 kilometers or 62 miles). The designated route for The Hibiscus Ride Metric Century is 67 miles making it a Metric Century Plus. A 31 mile route and a 10 mile route will also be presented for riders interested in shorter rides.   There will be numerous designated rest stops along the way for riders to refresh with food and water.  

The rides begin and end at the annual Hibiscus Festival featuring two full days of art, music and food in Historic Downtown Vero Beach.  This is a social event, and not a race.  ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST AGREE THEY WILL NOT ENGAGE IN ANY FORM OF RACING DURING THIS EVENT.
