Fakawi was founded in 2009 by Jimi Toural, a competitive cyclist. His vision was to create an event to bring the cycling community together to experience riding in an "unknown" surreal scenery. Fakawi today is a calendared event that has created beyond the expected community engagement. It has quickly become the biggest southeast of Florida's premier gravel event for every type of cyclist. It is about celebrating the symbolic meaning of riding or racing your bike while creating lifetime memories.
