Cycle Jam for the Kids

The Annual Cycle Jam for the Kids is a non-competitive ride through scenic Brevard County.  Beautiful Central Florida weather, great food, and full SAG support is provided by experienced ride organizers.  Our riders come back year after year to feel good and do good.  All proceeds benefit SCEIC, a preschool that specializes in preparing children with and without disabilities for kindergarten and beyond.  Special needs students with diagnosis such as Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, speech, hearing or vision impairments receive instruction and therapy in  fully inclusive programs with their typically developing peers. When you sponsor, ride or raise funds for Cycle Jam for the Kids, you are ensuring that Brevard continues to have a preschool where every child can learn and grow!

If you ride, and even if you don’t want to ride, we invite you to join us for Family Fun Fest, which was a new addition to our Cycle Jam event this year.

Family Fun Fest

Family Fun Fest takes place at the start/finish of the Cycle Jam, and presents vendors, drawings, activities, and a handicap-accessible playground at Space Coast Field of Dreams.  Agents of Mirth stopped by to liven things up!

Bike Safety

SCEIC is committed to promoting Bike Safety.  All riders will obey Florida Rules of the Road.  Of course, the rule stands: no helmet, no ride.  Headphones are prohibited.  For the safety and welfare of all riders, children under 16 years of age may ride in the Half Century or Family Fun Ride.  Anyone under 18 must be accompanied on the ride by an adult guardian over the age of 21.

Our Family Fun Ride encourages families to ride together.  This escorted ride is great for families with young children.  Children too young to ride a 20” bike may be pulled in bike trailers or put in child carriers.

Start and Finish

Cycle Jam for the kids begins and ends at Space Coast Field of Dreams, 3053 Fell Road, Melbourne.  Registration opens at 6:00 am.  The ride takes place rain or shine, and the organizers reserve the right to delay or alter start times or course routes in the event of inclement weather on ride day.  Check the SCEIC website for updates as the day approaches.  The course will close at 4:00 pm, which means you have 6 hours to complete the course.   A rover vehicle will trail the ride markers, and riders may choose to get a ride back, or they may continue riding outside of the event and without support.

Distances for All

Cycle Jam for the Kids features four different distances to satisfy any rider! The Century, Metric, and Half Metric courses will close at 3 PM, giving riders 7-8 hours to complete the ride.

Century+ (100+ miles)

Metric Century (62 miles)

Half Metric Century (31 miles)

Family Fun Ride (10 miles) Police escorted ride for the whole family.  Children must have a 20” wheel or larger to ride.  Young children may be pulled in bike trailers or in carriers.  
     No Helmet, No Ride.

Support

Before the ride, fuel up on bagels, coffee, juice and fruit.  5 SAG stops are positioned along the ride so riders can rest, and enjoy food and drink.   Roving support will be available along the ride to give technical help and first aide if needed.  Course must be completed in six hours.
