it was a blast - here are some photos that I took along the way:


Paragon Man and FACTOR e start the journey



we then meet up with a shady couple at a rest area




we followed them to the trail head:



get to the park and there are some others ready to unload their bikes



make sure to follow the signs - as a group we trespassed, spooked a horse that bucked off a lady and had some rednecks pull out fire arms and say "this is private property..you better git"



these froggies were hiding out behind the sign



it started out safe enough





then we had a sag stop:






then it got a little muddy:



if you are going to have mud you need the ultimate mud machine:



we all made it back safe where there was food drink and good times:



Mikey won the trophy:

Sandy wolf pack section with ups and down before Old Elizabeth Road and the gravel road adjacent to the train track, these sections breaks your will.

It was all good. Except for the ride to Deltona with FACTORe. He was huffing a fresh batch of jenkem the whole way and that stuff kind of smelled... ;D

Extremely fun ride. The sand definately was a challenge.

Did he make it right there in the car?

The best part of the ride was the after party.. for those that didn't camp, you all missed it.  Sorry... I cannot go into full details of the activities but let's just say that an 18 pack of bud light, a fishing pole, coquito, a fire, fireworks, beer (yingling, benji's brew, Modelo, budlight, Heiniken, Hawaiing beer, and a few others), dog massages, ihop, pizza, machetes, were involved...

But as for the ride.. my highlight was a lady falling off a horse after some crazy bike riders spooked the horse.  She must've flown 10 feet into the air before falling into the gras.... "I am alright...."   But I really think Paragon Man was 50% at fault for suggesting to go up to the horse and slaping the back side saying Hay-yaaaaa!  hay-yaaaa! (sp?)... hahaha... Ooops "Are you okay?... tell us what to do"... "I am alright... I am alright..."  I just need to see a doctor for my fracture hip... LOL.. I really hope she was okay.

Ride = IDIDARIDE, San Anto/Dade City, Croom, Morris Bridge, NC logs, SideWalks, Traffic Lights, Paved Trails all in one... what a blast!

I am ready for the next one...

Oh... did you all see that weird dude with a pink cape and pink handle bar grip tassles?  He got quite a few cars honking their horns at him.  Girls and Guys equally....

This was surely an epic to end all epics.  At the end of the day it was a gruling 63 miles (some of us wanted an extra 8 more so we took a wrong turn and passed the lunch stop....)

Best part of the ride?  Riding with all the new peeps that were there and not knowing what was around the next bend...a sand pit?  A mud machine?  A hillbilly with a loaded gun???

Awesome ride!

Best Parts of the ride:

1. Angelina's
2. Afterparty
3. Wolfpack section
4. The one rocky downhill then the ridiculously steep uphill

A big thanks to Karlos for envisioning the ride and making it a reality. Also a big thanks to Paloma and the ladies for going out and getting all the food!!

I must say that the root beer colored Gary Fisher is a thing of beauty! Sky high seat post looks precarious though.

it wasn't a race....you got points for finding balloons and doing tasks - wearing pink capes etc...not too much to do with speed..allthough Mikey was fast

You are very insecure about your hubs...LOL
