Founded in 2014 by Orlando Police Officer Mark Levy, the ToughBiker concept was formed after numerous Bicycle Patrol Unit training rides through city parking garages.
While on these rides, Mark met many homeless people in desperate need of help. Moved by their situation, Mark felt compelled to contact the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
Inspired by the training rides, the ToughBiker urban challenge was created as an 11 mile urban, crit-style mountain/cycloscross bike challenge through downtown city streets, public parks and parking garages. All will benefit at-risk children, women and homeless families in Central Florida.
