Santos Epic Ride - 11/20 or 11/21?
« on: November 13, 2007, 07:27:36 AM »
I have yet to do the entire Santos Epic (42 miles) ride.  I preparation for my Triple Crowns coming up, I want to go warm up with another fiddy at Santos.  I have Thanksgiving week off (after Monday) so I am headed up to Santos to do a 50.  I might park at the Landbridge Trailhead so I can use as SAG stop.

Anyone interested?  10-12mph easy pace.  Is all Blue and Yellow trails.  Nothing technical just endurance.  I am good either day.  Tuesday or Wednesday (11/20 or 11/21).  Ride out at 9:30am.

My schedule is pretty open on the weekends.  Wouldn't even mind a Thanksgiving morning Epic.
It's not just fun, it's an addiction!

A ride thanksgiving morning???  Dude, find yourself a good young juicy turkey and start cooking.  If not, I have two I have to prepare that day.  You are welcome to come down here and help me.  We'll go riding Friday!

So... Anyone else for Tuesday or Wednesday of next week?? So far, I only have two maybes for Wednesday.  None on Tuesday.  Final call.


oh... BTW,... SWAMP is doing Santos that weekend.  The official ride will be on Val's trail so they are parking by LandBridge I belive.  Check the Calendar to make sure.  If not on the Calendar it was in the newsletter.  But either way, check with Wes or yahoo newsgroup to make sure you know where they are parking for that Santos ride on 11/25.

Still a little unsure about Wednesday, but I am working on scheduling it in.


My son and I will be going to Alafia on Friday. We will be driving from Northport, where my inlaws live. Not sure of the exact time, but probably mid morning. If anyone would like to join us, let me know.
