The 2017 Safari is planned for April 8th through April 13th.
The Florida Bicycle Safari is a springtime bicycling adventure that features six days of supported rides over some of the best cycling roads in North Florida and South Georgia. The six-day Safari is limited to 250 participants. A three-day option is also available for those whose schedules do not permit riding the full tour.

The first three days will be based at the Suwannee County Fairgrounds in Live Oak. Different routes will be offered each day with several mileage options, including a century on Sunday.
Monday, while the three-day cyclists loop back to Live Oak, six-day riders head north past the town of Madison. The Safari will camp at the Cherry Lake campground for three nights. A different route will be featured each day, again with several mileage options, and will include a century on Tuesday.
All Safari routes are staffed throughout the day with well-marked SAG wagons, while a mechanic-on-wheels will also be driving the routes for minor repairs and emergency adjustments. Rest stops providing drinks, snacks, sandwich provisions, and fruit will be set up approximately every 18 to 25 miles.
