Toughbiker is the community. We have support from local businesses and government in our community. Without the continued support of The City of Orlando, The Orlando Police Department, Orange Cycle, Kyle's Bike Shop, Retro City Cycles, Beth's Burger's, DeWitt Law, Publix, Walmart and many other people in the community who donate personally, we could not exist. Orlando is our team and we got your back!
Founded in 2014 by Orlando Police Downtown Bike Officer Mark Levy, the Tough Biker concept was formed after numerous bicycle patrol rides through city parking garages and the downtown urban district. Officer Levy didn’t want to just do another urban race. He wanted to make a difference with the youth in the community who were experiencing the negative effects of at-risk behavior. Tough Biker was forged in the desire to provide a benefit to at-risk youth where they could learn both a skill and a creative form of recreation. Youth learn both how to ride and repair their bikes!
Tough Biker Orlando is an urban, crit-style mountain/cyclocross bike challenge through downtown city streets, public parks and parking garages. Tough Biker is committed to helping at-risk youth through the sport of mountain biking. Proceeds benefit charities who assist at-risk youth in Central Florida. We focus our mentoring on cycling and getting more kids on bikes!
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
February 5, 2020 the local cycling community lost Mark Marshall, a long time cycling advocate and shop owner in the Clermont area. Please visit the link below to leave your condolences for Mark and his family. Visitation and funeral service information are listed on his obituary.
Thank you to everyone who left their condolences and support for the cycling community. Below are a few who left kind words.
Craig Roberts: Inn honor of Mark Marshall who’s 70 years left a mark on the Long Island and Florida cycling communities and all that knew him.
Chris Catharine: In memory of Kathi & Mark Marshall. I would also like to acknowledge his children Vicky, Crystal and Mark. I also made the donation in Kathi‘s name also, as they were lifelong friends from grade school who I miss tremendously. We all grew up in East Meadow LI together, went to high school together, went to prom together and graduated together and my husband and I were best man and maid of honor at their wedding. Kathi was in my wedding, unfortunately Mark was in Vietnam at that time. As you see, we were lifelong friends. I miss them both so very, very much.
Christine Palmer: In memory of Mark Marshall.
Kenneth Aniess: In memory of Mark Marshall, a cycling buddy from my high school and a great guy.
Paul McCarron: In memory of Mark Marshall.
