Hemingway Ride


The Annual Hemingway Bicycle Tour

July 24TH, 2021

We will be starting at 9:00 AM at Sombrero Beach located at 200 36th Street, Marathon, FL 33050.     305-395-1551

Several years ago a couple of runners started the tradition of riding their bikes to Key West the day of the Hemingway 5K race. After the ride, they would arrive in time to register for the race and run the 3.1 mile course. Afterwards they would drink a couple of beers at the  race party and hit Duval Street until 4 AM. The Tradition continues...............................................

We will start the ride at 9 AM at Sombrero Beach. Will have a fully SAG supported vehicle tailing the riders for the duration of the Ride. There will be 4 scheduled stops located on the South Side of 7 Mile Bridge, Kikis Sandbar and Grill, Baby's Coffee and the Southernmost Marker . We are charging $75 for the SAG support only. Our group is staying overnight in Key West and doing the 5K run. If you want a ride back with bikes to Marathon the following morning, it's an additional $75 fee. We are doing a bike rental special of $25 for a road bike for this event.

The Hemingway 5K Sunset Run is not included in this fee.

You need to sign up for the 5K and Paddle at
