What gives, 33 views and no relpies?  Figured you club would be silmilar to mine. There are always a few peeps riding mid-day from lack of employment opportunities.  Forgot to mention the stoners.

Check out Boyette.
If you can ride on Sunday there is a club ride leaving parking area at 9am. We are opening 4 new trails.
Also check out Santos in Ocala.

Santos is about as hard as Florida gets, so if you're down for that you're down for whatever else Florida can throw at you..that said, ride everything we have anyway.

Florida has flow, and hills, minus the elevation change.

welcome and enjoy. :D

I have to say that Fort Meade is the hardest thing in Florida. Santos is fun but FM will kick your butt!!

I remember it well, and with a bizarre combination of fear and respect. lol

LTS, have you ever rode the toe?? If so it is like the toe on steroids. It is one of the only places in florida that you need the granny gear.

Never got to the Toe, I only had one buddy that was a member of RR's, and it just worked out, that I never got the chance, I'll definitely have to check it out, even if I do have to walk most of the climbs. lol
