Join the New 30A YOLO Bike and Beach Club!


Bike+BeachClubThe 30A YOLO Bike & Beach Club has officially launched, bringing locals of all skill levels together for some laid-back exploration of South Walton’s natural habitats.


Group bike rides kick-off every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. from YOLO Board + Bike in Gulf Place. You can grab a cup of coffee at The 30A Store next door before heading out with the group onto the Longleaf Pine Trails, and then you can enjoy an ice cool beer when you get back.


Jeff Archer, CEO of YOLO Board, and Mike Ragsdale, founder of The 30A Company, came up with the idea for the club as part of the companies’ recent partnership.


“We wanted to bring together a fun group of people who enjoy taking advantage of everything that South Walton has to offer,” said Archer. “It’s a really laid-back chance to hang out with old friends and to make new ones.”


“Some days we’ll explore nature trails, some days we’ll do a pub crawl or cafe tour; whatever the club wants to do,” said Ragsdale. “It’s almost like a mobile speakeasy.”



While the club is still very much in its infancy, Archer said that the group will take at least one bike ride a week, and will expand to organize group paddle board excursions, beach bonfires and other special events. Note that everyone is welcome to travel at their own pace and that all brands of bikes are welcome.(AKA, ride what you got!) Club members will soon have access to a special mobile app featuring club info, as well as access to official 30A YOLO Bike and Beach Club shirts and swag.


The 30A YOLO Bike and Beach Club is free to join, and it’s open to all skill levels. Watch’s events calendar for weekly meeting dates, times and details.
