Sebring

Centrally located in Florida, Sebring is home to nearly 100 crystal clear lakes, vast citrus groves, cattle ranches, the Sebring International Raceway, and one of Florida’s oldest state parks. You will experience the “old Florida” charm with its relaxed way of life, warmth and geniality while the lakes, restaurants and nature provide the fun.

The gently rolling hills, low-traffic roads and charming small towns make GFNY Sebring an ideal late-season race and cycling vacation destination. You will ride through protected native Florida 'scrub' habitat, cattle ranches, orange groves on well-maintained roads with panoramic vistas.

Sebring will delight you with its many restaurants, while a trip to the beautiful Highlands Hammock State Park is a must-do, as well as enjoying the majestic lake-view sunsets.

Courses

GFNY Florida race week activities take place at the elegant and rustic Barn at Paso Fino. You will be picking up your race packets and enjoying the post-race festivities, music and awards at the The Barn at Paso Fino, and the post-race BBQ prepared by their highly-rated chef. The start and finish will take place just outside the entrance to the property, making the race day planning for you and your supporters very easy. 

From The Barn, the race travels on rural roads before turning onto the traffic-controlled Route 66. 
 
Once you turn right off Route 66, you will start  a 35-mile scenic loop through Central Florida’s tranquil and scenic nature. You will enjoy excellent road conditions through picturesque state-preserved plantation land, ranches, orange groves and scrub habitat along low traffic and well-paved roads. To accompany the stunning panoramas and tranquility, the course will delight you with fast, straight sections, while winds that change during the day will challenge you.
 
Long route riders repeat the loop a 2nd time before heading back to The Barn at Paso Fino. 
 
The Barn at Paso Fino provides GFNY Sebring athletes a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop for your race. Come and enjoy your visit to Sebring and the festive atmosphere of this enchanting venue.

LONG COURSE IS A COMPETITION: Only the finishers of the long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall and Podium awards. If you want to race and be ranked in your category, you must complete the long course. Top 10% of finishers in each age group earn a spot in the Qualifier Corral at every GFNY World event.

 

MEDIUM COURSE IS NOT A COMPETITION: The riders of the medium course will be provided their start-to-finish time, but will not be ranked by finish time. All finish times will be listed in alphabetical order.
