2014 EBC Roland Mazzotti Snowbird Century


SUNDAY, MARCH 27 at Homestead Air Reserve Park, pedals up 7:30 AM!

The Roland Mazzotti Snowbird Century is one of EBC's most popular events.  Named after the late Roland Mazzotti, beloved by his colleagues and fellow members for his down to earth humor, love of all things cycling, and dedication to EBC.  We honor the memory of Roland with this ride each year. We have something for everyone, experienced road cyclists can choose from the 100 mile century or 62 mile metric century.  Or have fun cycling with your family or friends on our 40 mile route.  The 30 mile route allows beginners and touring cyclists an excellent option. Come out and ride with us! Proceeds to benefit a charity of the ride chairmen's choosing.

Be a part of EBC's Annual Roland Mazzotti Snowbird Century!

Ride Description


The 2014 Roland Mazzotti Snowbird Century starts at the Homestead Air Reserve Park at 7:30 am. It is one of EBC's most popular annual events attracting over 600 riders every year. Best supplied rest stops. Plenty of water, sports drinks, fruit and more. SAG provided by local bike shops, as well as roaming SAG on the route. Nominal charges for parts. Well marked routes. No fundraising required. We ride for fun and we ride to support our community. This year we have chosen Voices for Children Foundation Inc. and My Animals Rock as our charity beneficiaries.


30 Mile Family Fun Ride This is the perfect distance for the touring rider, the beginning cyclist, or those of you just getting back in the saddle.


40 Mile Ride Back by popular demand! We are offering an intermediate ride for a fun day out on the bike with your family and friends.  Make a day of it and see picturesque South Dade countryside by bike!. 

62 Mile Metric Century
For those a little more ambitious. Metric century riders will accompany the century riders through the scenic and rural Homestead, Florida City and Redland areas. THIS YEAR, FOR METRIC CENTURY RIDERS THE ROUTE INCLUDES AEROJET ROAD!!

100 Mile Century
  BEST VALUE !! For those that are looking for the ultimate challenge. Century riders will visit the extremes of South Miami-Dade County.  They will be on the edge of the Everglades when they visit the Chekida rest stop, they will visit the secluded Aerojet base in the southern reaches of the county, and get a beautiful view of Biscayne Bay at Homestead/Bayfront Park.

For the 100 mile riders - "All Century riders passing mile 45 after 11:10 am will be directed to finish with the Metric Century riders" to ensure that you will be able to enjoy the catered lunch at the end and we can provide SAG support for you. This information is also posted on the 62/100 route maps.
