Yeah, just trying to beat the heat.  If it's Boyette, I am gonna try to do about 20 miles, with few stops, but not too fast of a pace.  If it's Alafia, I will not be concerned with the mileage and just have fun working on my lack of tech skills!   ;D

sorry to miss the post last night.  I rode Boyette this morning.  Will be back there Sunday morning at 08:00, like you I'm aiming for 20-25 miles at a reasonable pace - probably toss in the quads for good measure.

Good to ride with ya' today Coach.  Some sandy spots because of no rain, but great riding weather for early summer.  Hope my wheel didn't get in your way on a couple of those climbs.  Where were the gators today?  Didn't see a one.

Garry, I really appreciate you and Tony letting me tag along today.  I am grateful you guys didn't add any extra mileage and drop me.  That was one of my best rides (speed v. distance).  I am looking forward to the Santos Epic attempt.  With all the rain we got in Valrico, I am assuming Boyette will be great tomorrow.

The Santos epic sounds awesome.  Too bad it's such a drive, but well worth putting in the miles once there! 
Once we get a crew together to dedicate to "sprucing up" the Quadrants I want to put together an epic of the whole trail system.  Been playing this one through the noggin for a while.  There's some good potential in there to add some "flavor" for this very basic trail.
