Sorry for the delay in this reply, I have been on a forum sabbatical.
Happy to see that the usual suspects are IN. Scott, NOBODY is allowed to work on Sundays, come on!
Jonsey: thanks for finding and posting the route, and working with Steve to set up some food. Let us know what we can expect when you know (and the cost).
Karlos: this ride is different from what we did with Rob. The TACORIDE goes along the Hillsborough river up to Flatwoods, while the ride we did with Rob followed the canal. That ride was unpleasant at times. But you will still be able to peel off at the same spot where we got off the canal and took the road up to the Fort King trail, so your plan should work just like last time.
The TACORIDE, it should be clear, involves a substantial amount of road riding. The roads that follow the river are often old, crappy, bricky and can be hilly. I think they are fun, but then again I am a roadie. Traffic will not be a big deal, but blinkies are still recommended.
