Pan Florida Challenge

Pan Florida Challenge

Pan Florida Challenge

Register

Location: North Collier Regional Park
Naples, FL

 

Pan-Florida Challenge (PFC) is a charity on a mission to end childhood hunger in Florida, one meal at a time. After eating breakfast and lunch at school during the week, 1 million Florida children just like Tommy go home on Friday without enough food to sustain them over the weekend. Each Friday of the school year, we give these children PFC Power Packs TM, weekend backpack meals to stave off hunger for the weekend.

The genesis of PFC began with the 2014 Ride for Hunger, a 360-mile, 4-person relay ride across Florida that raised $44,000 and fed 134,000 meals to hungry kids in Haiti through Help for Haiti. Modeled on the Pan Mass Challenge, which raised $47 million in 2017, our sights are set high. Since 2015, we have provided over 4 million meals to hungry children.

Through an extensive network of food distribution partners, schools and child care providers, sponsors and supporters, we intend to educate and engage as many people as possible until there are no longer any hungry children.

Top Reasons You’ll Love Your Electric Bike

There are many good reasons you will find to love your new electric bike, or e bike, here are some of the Top Reasons You’ll Love Your Electric Bike that we’ve found.

1. Accessibility

– Ever wanted to take a nice, long, scenic bike ride with someone who is an avid cyclist but didn’t feel you could keep up? With electric pedal assist, now you can! Enjoy panoramic mountain views, explore miles of coastline, wide open spaces, or??? The Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0 women’s bike is a good example of an electric touring bike.  Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0

 

2. Commuting

– How do you get to work refreshed, and having beaten the traffic? Answer: A motorized bike. The optimal motorized bike is electric, being both quiet and non-polluting. Single cycle gasoline engines are one of, if not the highest polluter in the land! Commuting on an e bike is both fun, and refreshing. You get enough exercise to wake you up, but not enough to sweat to the point your colleagues will notice. The Bintelli Journey makes a great commuting bike.Bintelli Journey Electric Bike

3. Schlepping

– Whether it’s groceries or your dog, using an e bike to do it will help you and the environment. Instead of a chore, it becomes a fun outing you will actually look forward to! There are electric bikes built just for this purpose, such as the Yuba Electric Boda Boda cargo bike.Yuba Electric Boda Boda or the Cero One cargo bike.Cero One Image

 

4. Traveling

– Sightseeing is a breeze (literally) on an electric bike! Do you pull a “town car” behind your RV? If you replace it with a couple of e bikes, you will save a lot of gas, have an easier time parking your rig, and have a whole lot more fun sightseeing, and getting around town. The Ecotric Fat Tire Beach and Snow bike will take you anywhere you want to go with a smile on your face!Ecotric Fat Tire Electric Bike 

If you have questions on any of these bikes, or would like more information, leave a comment or you can email me at:
