Tour de Parks set for March 27

The City of Atlantic Beach will host its annual Tour de Parks, a community bicycle ride to 10 parks in the community, on Saturday, March 27. Participation is limited to 50 people due to COVID-19 protocols; RSVPs are strongly encouraged.

The event kicks off at 9 a.m. and begins and ends at Russell Park, with Atlantic Beach police will lead the way. Other parks and preserves on the tour are Howell, Bull, Johansen, Jordan, Donner, Dutton Island, Rose, Tide Views, and Beaches Memorial Veterans.

Tour de Parks participants are requested to RSVP by calling 247-5828 or emailing recreation@coab.us.

The annual bicycle tour was founded in 2006 and revived in 2019 largely through the efforts of Atlantic Beach resident Marina Kaplan, who has since passed away. 

It’s also a community-building art, culture and history tour; indeed, Atlantic Beach is becoming an increasingly popular canvas for urban muralists.

Along the leisurely, family-friendly bike "crawl," participants ride as a group throughout the community’s beachside before traveling to the marshside for spectacular views. Throughout the ride, bikers are treated to an abundance of shade under Atlantic Beach’s renowned tree canopy.

Tour de Parks is weather-dependent and is subject to cancellation. Walking alongside the bicyclists is not an option for safety purposes and because walkers likely would not be able to keep up with the bicycles.

Florida law requires children under 16 to wear a helmet while bicycling or on a bicycle as a passenger. For more information on bicycle safety, visit www.coab.us/bikesmart.
