There are four primary objectives of Velo Fest: Movement of the People. First is to increase awareness and educate both cyclists and non cyclists alike about the laws of the road, what makes it a gentleman’s sport, and the carbon footprint and the social benefits of the cyclist. Second Velo Fest will raise funds for St. Augustine and St. Johns County area to improve the cyclists ability to navigate and share the road as well as have new places to ride. The third is to help young and old understand the health side affect of cycling and importance of cycling in a healthy way. Fourth and final objective to help our area embrace the long history of the bicycle, how it has changed our culture and how it can improve our community’s economic development through tourism and transportation for our visitors.
