400K Update #1; Central FL Jersey

  1. The workers’ ride of the Dunnellon 400K was completed earlier this week. The cue sheet has been posted to the Events page and is also located here.
  2. The workers’ ride revealed several things that you should be aware of. There were some loose dogs on the route, most notably at mile 88.7 right before the turn at US 27, where two aggressive pits gave chase. There are some big potholes after the jog at about mile 147.5. The unpaved road — Hunter, in Micanopy — is easy to miss. It looks like a driveway, but it’s a road. There is some loose sand, but it’s rideable. Be careful out there. Depending on your pace, your last real food for the night might come at mile 200 before the turn at CR 225. The store at mile 220 closes at 10:45pm and there are no services after mile 243 until the end. Plan accordingly!
  3. As of now, there are 29 people riding the 400K. Please let me know if you are coming and your name is not on the registered riders list; similarly, if you cannot make it and registered, please let me know that, too.
  4. Central Florida old-school jerseys! This is the exact same one you’ve seen on the road. No changes. Want one? Order directly from JEK. Better yet, order two. I can neither confirm nor deny that there is or might be another CFL-R jersey in the making, but we’ve had a lot of requests for this old one regardless, so here’s your chance. Jump on it!
