The TransFlorida Project
« on: September 27, 2011, 05:22:26 PM »
Hi.

I know there are some of you interested in bikepacking and off road touring but lack the gear.

Well I am attempting to get some feedback on a couple of things.

Either the first or second weekend in December. 

Guide a Tour of the 220mile coast to coast transflorida route.

We could have support, but that would require each person to pay 50$ and that would get your gear transported from each of the pre planned spots to the designated camp spot for each day.

Would you be interested in something like this?

4 days, coast to coast, wheel dip to wheel dip transflorida challenge?

Im open to suggestions as well from people who are really interested in participating.  For 100$ per person I could have our supplies transported and food/beer provided as well. One less thing to think about.

So, let's hear what you have to say?

thanks ahead of time..

I would be interested K, the biggest help for me would be a shuttle from the west coast to east coast.

I would be interested in this. 
First weekend wouldn't work for me though, Tough Mudder conflict.

Appreciate the feedback.

50$ a person would not include us hunting down food, but would include taking your money and having whatever you want there for you when you arrive.

We would start in the west.  I can get you a ride home.

Its even possible that we could start right in Tampa, that option does exist but you miss riding across the greenway and that is the best part really.
