Sunshine Grand Prix Cycling event adds Citrus County & Inverness

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on March 28, 2017

We are excited to announce that Citrus County and Inverness are now a major part of the present and future of Sunshine Grand Prix, a nationally ranked event.  The Sunshine Grand Prix is an annual Professional & Amateur Cycling and Fun & Healthy Community Living event.  This week long event will take place during the week of March 25 to April 2, 2017.

The 2nd edition of the Sunshine Grand Prix starts in St. Petersburg on Saturday, March 24 and ends in Brooksville on Sunday, April 2, and the Inverness Airport will host the start of the racing portion of the event on Friday, March 31, from 1pm to 6pm.  The event is free and open to the public.

The 3rd edition in 2018 will incorporate Downtown Inverness; the bike trails system, and the beautiful Citrus County rolling roads, as well as a variety of healthy and fun community activities.

The Sunshine Grand Prix is the first program of the Florida Cycling Foundation.  The Florida Cycling Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization was established to foster cycling and healthy communities through advocacy, education, and promotion.  They accomplish their goals by developing and supporting programs that engage and empower our stakeholders and communities.
