BICYCLE CLUB

The new roads constructed in Durbin Crossing are favorites of local cyclists who have created the "Tour de Durbin" as one of their weekly rides. The Tour de Durbin starts at Veterans Park and encompasses 28 or 47 miles, whichever the rider prefers. The ride takes a route through Northwest St. Johns County as riders enjoy the natural beauty of Longleaf Pine, Greenbriar Road, Florida 13 and Race Track Road. Members of the North Florida Bicycle Club developed the Tour de Durbin after touring the Durbin Crossing are and finding newly paved roads with bike lanes. Since then, the ride has become a club favorite. For more information about the North Florida Bicycle Club visit www.nfbc.us.
