Default Ride Coast to Coast in ONE DAY

If you happen to be in FL this weekend, check out this website:

FLC2C 2011

It doesn't look like much from the website, but I went last year, and it was by far the best ride of the entire year. The people who put it together find amazing routes; rolling hills, country lanes, lots and lots of CURVES! People come from all over the state and the US; I met some very cool riders last year and learned a lot of great stuff about LD riding.

The ride starts in Seffner, FL, which is just outside of Tampa, and after a very circutuous route, ends in Daytona.

This year I'm bringing my camera to prove the skeptics wrong.

You know what's tragic? I ride so few curves and hills day to day, the first hour I felt like I was learning to ride again. Plus I had a completely squared-off rear, which sucked. This year, I "spooned on fresh buns."

Too bad I can't post them on MO. Like I used to. With interesting stories from the ride. And stuff.

I'm sure the silky smooth transmission and beefy forks helped with those corners!

You now owe LR 158 beers because you didn't call him to buy him 153.

Sarnali is right. You don't really have corners in FL.

Only after I thumbed the starter and the engine burbled into a loping idle.

There were a heap o' corners, curves, and hills on our ride. I just couldn't take photos of 'em as I rode. However, one guy had his wife along and she supposedly took photos. If I get them I'll put them up on STrooper.

YOU were supposed to give ME his phone number and/or email. So YOU owe ME and LR 256 beers!

You said you don't drink!

I don't want you to end up in a "bad place" like in the Bahamas.

That hardly precludes me from collecting beers from people who owe me them.
