Description of ride: This is the Pinellas Beaches 200K route with a different ride start. Same loop down to Fort DeSoto and then Pass-a-Grille and up to Trapon Springs as in the past; different start and finish. No support of any kind. Riders will travel along the Gulf of Mexico, experiencing several outstanding vistas. The route starts in St. Petersburg, visits a number of beaches, goes down the Pinellas Trail, and finishes through St. Petersburg with a lap through the Lakewood golf course back to the park.
A few words on randonneuring: Although timed, these events are not races and no one will be recognized based on finishing time or finishing order. Given the urban nature of this route, and the bike path in particular, racing or aggressive riding is strongly discouraged. There is no SAG or support; you must be self-reliant and self-sufficient, and that includes should you become stranded on the route due to a mechanical or other difficulty. Riders should ensure that they are familiar with the rules for these events, which can be found here, and can find some additional advice on “What to expect” here. Membership in RUSA is required to participate. Helmets are required!
