Some notes on the ride:
— 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 for two or more nights; $69.99 for a single night. Reserve asap to secure this rate and to ensure that they have rooms available; they have been selling out two weeks in advance!
— This route has quickly become an “old reliable.” It passes through the Ocala National Forest, crosses the St. John’s, and heads to A1A for a few beach views before returning. It’s generally flat and, as 300s go, it’s pretty easy. But not if the wind blows; there are some exposed sections where a stiff breeze can take the fight out of the strongest randonneur.
— The fiscally mindful will notice the $5 price increase for this ride over prior editions. For the extra five bucks, you are getting significantly upgraded food and beverages compared to years’ past.
—There is a 200K the previous day, so stay an extra night and do another great ride!
