Register now for the new BILL BONE Burger Fondo
The Burger Fondo is presented by CONTE'S BIKE SHOP and will begin and end in sunny Boca Raton on April 18th!
Let's be clear about the intent of the Bill Bone Burger Fondo. The goal is to deliver the safest ride experience, the pleasure of riding on A1A with your friends and enjoying the best BURGERS around. To make sure those goals are accomplished we have engaged the 'A-Team' of promoters, sponsors and an executive chef.
THE FONDO CHEF
Chef Patti has been written up in Bon Appetite as Executive Chef and partner at Sweet Sop Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale. He has been featured on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives. M.E.A.T. Eatery And Taproom’s most prestigious recognitions was being named the #5 Burger restaurant in the US by Trip Advisor in 2014, Best Burger in Florida by Thrillist 2015, Best Burger in Florida by Chowhound 2016/2017 and Top 101 Burgers in America by the Daily Meal 2015-2019. His restaurants have over 40 awards in Florida.
There are two rides to choose from!
In true Fondo format, the 90km Burger has two timed sections allowing you compete for awards across a range of age categories for both men and women on your road bike.
In between, the format allows you to enjoy the ride, work in a group and soak up the beautiful warm, sunny ocean-side scenery along the way, including the enjoyment of riding on AIA & Ocean Ave as ride heads north towards West Palm Beach and back.
The 80km social ride (50 miles) is designed for those who want to get out and enjoy a more relaxed social able group led ride and burn some calories. You can take part on any type of bike, including e-bikes, triathlon bikes and tandems too.
Each ride is designed to be fun, controlled and safe. The rides start outside CONTE'S BIKE SHOP in Boca Raton, Florida, led by a police escort and police-controlled intersections at stop lights too.
Which is what will be provided afterwards by M.E.A.T Eatery & Tap Room which includes veggie burgers too! M.E.A.T. has accumulated over 3 dozen awards and accolades in the past 5 years to become one of the most awarded restaurants in Florida!
You can check out they’re deliciously mouth-watering menu here if you are eager to have a meal before the event.
You burn those calories; we supply the burgers!

7:00am - This ride is not the typical start to finish format, rather it uses two, 15-mile timed sections to produce results.
Timed Section 1 (From Spanish River Blvd to 1/4 before Lake Ave - 15 miles – a good time to press your lap split button). Look for the orange waving flags as you cross the start line and the same orange waving flags at the finish line. After this section riders will be escorted to the next neutral stop located at the law office of title sponsor Bill Bone. The ride will stop, and riders will enjoy drinks and food (Mile 30), then head back South.
Timed Section 2 (From Lake Ave to Spanish River Blvd - top of rise - 15 miles). Look for orange waving flags again. After crossing, make a right turn at the light and head to CONTE'S BIKE SHOP off Federal Highway for post event fun.
Social Ride Format
7:05am - 50 miles ride, but 80K sounds cooler and farther, 100% social ride led by police escort. You may use any bike you wish on this ride, but we ask that if you are using triathlon bars, you say off the bars of a rider is in front of you in the pace line. Speeds are less than 19 mph. 200 Max riders. Riders will stop at office of Bill Bone, local top cycling attorney, West Palm Beach (Mile 25) for a nutrition break of goodies and then head back to CONTE'S BIKE SHOP. Riders are required to wear BIB numbers. This ride is not chipped timed.
