Speedweeks Cycling Kickoff

Speedweeks Cycling Kickoff

To kick off Speedweeks in Daytona, Alert Today Florida hosted a bicycle ride with some hotshot “people on bikes” promoting bicycle safety. Riders, to name a few, included Jimmy Johnson (Hendrick Motorsports), Dirk Bockel (Professional Triathlete), Charlie Cooper (People for Bikes), Steve Phelps (NASCAR), Scott Lagasse, Jr.(Team SLR), Christie Keely (Pro Cyclist), and Christian Vande Velde (Pro Cyclist), who joined FDOT District One Secretary and statewide champion Billy Hattaway for a 40-plus-mile ride from Ft. Matanzas to Daytona International Speedway.

Speedweeks Cycling Kickoff

Daytona International Speedway hosts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Every guest that visits Daytona International Speedway is a priority, and all of the improvements (wider sidewalks, new crosswalks and lighting, and the new pedestrian bridge) spearheaded by FDOT reflect both the department’s and the speedway’s commitment to pedestrian safety.
