Spoonbills & Sprockets


Registration Now Open for the 2023 Event

One of the nation's most iconic roadways, Spoonbills & Sprockets returns for the 11th year in 2023.

Heading into the new decade of this ride, it's revitalized and ready to be your most memorable experience as you cycle 15, 37, 62 or 100 miles along the A1A Scenic Byway.


Why A1A?

No other stretch of highway reaches deeper into America's history than the A1A Scenic & Historical Coastal Byway.

This iconic 72-mile stretch of A1A along the coastline of St. Johns and Flagler counties is filled with recreation, adventure, nature and scenic beauty. Florida's Historic Coast has been part of American history for 500 years, and we're excited to share a look at one of the nation's greatest destinations with you!

Based on core values of transportation and safety, responsible, managed development, beautification of the scenic highway and surrounding communities, education and community outreach, and economic development and tourism, we strive to make our communities better, safer and more beautiful for residents and visitors to the A1A Scenic Byway.

We appreciate your support!
