Route and details: This is a return of the Tour de Central Florida 1000K, last held in October 2014. It was the genesis for the Cracker Swamp 1200K, but the route is completely different. The first day goes to Gainesville, the second day to the Atlantic Coast, and the third to San Antonio. It is flat to rolling with a few good climbs on the last day. It is a loop-style route, so you will return to your hotel room each night; no drop bags! We’ll provide breakfast at the start in the hotel lobby, and a solid dinner each each night at the overnight, but you’re otherwise totally on your own, including on the route itself for sustenance. Although the route is different, you can expect the same awesome food and beverages. The weather this time of year is typically dry and it can be hot, but it should not be oppressively humid.
Rider check-in: 5/3, from 6pm-7pm, or 3:30-4am day-of.
Registered Riders: 11 (Bennett, Burke, Colmenares, Grabiak, Haley, Hirschbruch, Lacey, Kusters, Martyny, Thompson, and Todd)
