The Fakahatchee Grind is an opportunity to ride your Gravel bike or mountain bike through one of the most diverse and unique ecosystems in the state. The chance of you seeing a panther on this ride is in your favor.
This will be the Sixth Running of the Fakahatchee grind, and in honor of this momentus occasion, we are offering qualified riders the Opportunity to ride a 250-mile route that starts and ends at Fakahatchee.
