let's do it factorE so we dont get embarrassed by real roadies
Mike, the wife and I did the NK ride on Saturday, PERFECT CONDITIONS. Come out not this weekend but the next and lets do it!
where is that ride? how far is it from tampa and how far is he ride itself...terrain etc.
The NK ride is in west volusia florida, starts on the Deltona/Osteen border. It is about 50 miles, but it can be longer if I add every little thing to it. And its a combination of roads, sidewalks, back roads, double track, dirt roads, bike paths and singletrack. Conditions can make it a rough ride, but mind you, even in the worst conditions a skilled rider can do it all without dismounting.
At this time, conditions are perfect and there was next to zero sandy spots. Felt like lots of climbing though, we did it backwards then the usual route, but if I and when I take a group out, I think backwards is the way to go.
