Cyclists will return to the Mutt Madness as the dog-friendly event is in full swing! After the ride stay and enjoy the Mutt Madness event with food, shopping and dogs available for adoption from various animal rescue groups.


You will receive a complimentary beverage from the beer garden and lunch item from the Suncoast Animal League vegetarian booth. Other food items will be available for purchase from various vendors. Raffles will be announced after the riders have all returned.


We hope you will join us for this fun day! All proceeds will support dogs and cats in need. The shelter animals thank you...with a big wag of their tail and a gentle purr.
