Some notes on the ride:
— The route is Tavares-Keystone Heights, last run in 2016. For veterans, it’s Tavares to Interlachen. It continues north out of Interlachen along the Palatka-Butler City rail trail to the turnaround in Keystone Heights. Other than the dog-leg to Keystone Heights, it’s the EME 400K route, turned into a 300K. Maybe you’ll get lucky and not get poured on like in 2013 and 2014.
— The hotel is holding a block of rooms for us. Call 877/220-2687 and ask for the block for “Central Florida Randonneurs.” The rooms are $65.99/night. Reserve asap to secure this rate and make sure that they have a room for you; they are selling out two weeks in advance these days.
— We’ll have dinner and libations for you at the finish, but you are on your own, as usual, out of the route itself. Parts of the route are remote, so be prepared for some long stretches without services.
