Lap of Florida
Lap of Florida Gold
Version No. 2.0
© 2017, Iron
Butt Association, Chicago, Illinois
The Lap of Florida is roughly 1,850 miles. You must ride your motorcycle around Florida and collect DBRs from 4 cities.
Although most of the route is on interstates, there is a significant portion that is not on fast roads: specifically, the ride to and from Key West to Homestead is a two lane road and can be very slow and congested; the road to Perdido Key is a two lane road and can be slow, and the road to Marco Island, although being a major four and six lane road, has many stop lights and traffic.
At the 44 hour pace, the Lap of Florida is slightly faster, at 42 mph, than a SaddleSore. The Lap of Florida Gold at 32 hours has a pace of 58 mph, which is almost at a BBG pace.
Read the rules for the iconic SaddleSore 1000 on the Ironbutt Association site. The rules for this ride are similar and you will get valuable background information.

DBR - Dated Business Receipt
A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time and LOCATION on it. Check it - do not assume it is correct. A receipt with an incorrect time/date/location is worthless. Check and re-check.
The ride must be completed in :
--Lap of Florida--less than 44 hours
--Lap of Florida Gold--less than 32 hours
You may start anywhere in Florida. You must start and end the ride at the same location, i.e. same DBR.
You may not leave Florida- except for safety reasons and if you leave you MUST re-enter Florida at the same point you left it.
You must obtain DBR every 350 miles or less AND in the following jurisdictions and the receipt MUST indicate the city, date and time. Check your receipts.
You may take any route you like - but remember you may not leave Florida.
Your official time is determined by the starting and ending receipts. PLEASE check these documents and make sure the clock and date are correct!
