Two great south Florida road bike races take place the weekend of May 31st & June 1st in West Palm Beach. The Florida state time trial championship takes place on Saturday, May 31st. The Bill Bone Gran Prix Criterium race takes place on Sunday, June 1st.
My husband and I will be participating in the 40K (25 mile) state time trial on Saturday. We have participated in two 15k time trials that are part of the West Palm Beach race series. To complete the series, you must participate in a minimum of five of the 15k time trials, and one of the 40k time trials. The Florida state TT takes place on the same course as the WPB race series 40k TT. If you participate in the Florida state TT, this will qualify as the 40k TT needed to complete the West Palm Beach race series.
We won't be able to compete in the Bill Bone Gran Prix Criterium on June 1st. We have a team ride with our Team in Training cycle team that day. And I haven't competed in any criterium races yet. Not sure if I'm going to like those or not, with their mass starts. There is a local criterium series held during the summer at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Jupiter. If I ever get around to trying one of those races, I may decide to compete in other criterium races in south Florida.
You can register online for the Florida state TT championship and/or the Bill Bone Gran Prix Criterium on the BikeReg website. The race flyer for both events can be viewed online too.
