OUR EVENT

The Alafia Fat Tire Festival is SWAMP’s premier and favorite annual FUNDRAISING mountain-biking event. Join us for a fun filled weekend of entertainment. Alafia River State Park offers unique topography and some of the most radical elevation changes in Florida. The trails are the most challenging in our riding area.
Moonscape and Gatorback trails were specifically designed for advanced level riders. Less technical, Roller Coaster, Bridges and North Creek trails provide a real adventure for any experienced cyclist. For newer riders, there are Sand Pine, Rock Garden and River Loop trails. Combined with all of the twotrack of Boyette’s trails, there is plenty to ride as a new rider, while still offering an exciting bike ride for the more experienced. The famed Abyss and Ridgeline trails will amaze and challenge all, while the diversity of singletrack, technical berm sections and hilly meadow riding will make for a fun day. "Show and Go" rides will be offered at both trail locations.


TAKE THE CHALLENGE

Feeling particularly energetic? If you are up to a 50-mile ride through trails for all skill levels, this challenge is for you. A marked course through both Alafia and Boyette will surely provide a day to remember for any rider that takes us up on this experience. There will be sag stops in both parks for snacks and hydration. Regardless of why you saddle up, for 50 or no particular mileage plan, we invite you to ride as far as you want or for as long as you want. We do hope you will save some energy to visit our Vendors’ Village, where you will have the opportunity to demo the latest bikes, meet our local bike shops and shop away. There are various ticket options available for the weekend; camp if you would like or just come to ride. Either way, your ticket price include some meals. Should you want more, there will be food opportunities available for separate purchases.
Last, but not least, when the afternoon riding is done, there will be games, prizes, swag and more.
Please take this opportunity to help support the SWAMP Club and the trail systems that you ride.
