i see that you are a part of the St pete bike club - i have done that AM ride several times now (tuesday/wed/ thursday)  at a point in the ride a group has bailed out to go to some bridge - what bridge are they riding too and how far is it?  I never go that way because i am on time constraints...i have to be at work at 9am - so i dont want to take a 2 hour detour.

also wed turnouts for that ride are pretty thin - is it always way busier on tuesdays and thursdays?

Do you mean when they turn at the light at 38th Ave S.?  If so, they go over the Coqiuna Key bridge, head to the back of the island, then come back out on the 45th Ave. S. bridge to head South down 4th St.  Usually a little faster group does this cut and it only adds a few miles to the ride.  Having to work at 9:00 you must do the 7:00 a.m. ride.  I never make that one.  I catch the 8:30, or if I'm running a few minutes late I rip through the gears to catch up.

They do a Tuesday or Wednesday evening ride I think, but I don't think it's too organized.  From what I hear they put the hammer down though.

it is easy to find hammer fests in st pete - i am not good at 27 mph plus rides (unless it is all down hill with wind at my back)

Those hammer-fests are tough in this heat and humidity we are having now.  I know I have hit some of the 24/26 rides and then we end up throwing some sprints in there as well.  Man, talk about needing recovery afterwards!  I tend to try and hang with the 22's.  But still some of the guys can't help but turn it up.
