Some notes on the ride:
–This is the Eustis-Flagler Beach brevet that was last run October 2022.
—Route recon: This is a fantastic route; there’s very little climbing on it. It does go through some very remote areas and the section between Seville and Flagler Beach is exposed so, if it’s windy, it can be challenging. A1A — if it’s nice weather, which we hope it is — can be busy. Be careful!
—Parking: Please DO NOT park at the Comfort Inn if you’re not staying there. There is ample parking within a few hundred yards of the start/finish.
—Do not plan on any on-route SAG on this ride. If you cannot complete the route for any reason, be prepared to arrange your own transportation back to the start/finish.
–You must be registered for the ride and sign the waiver. “Ride-alongs” jeopardize not only the existence of our rides but all of American randonneuring. If you want to volunteer to support all riders, please contact me and we’re thankful for the help.
—Lights and reflective stuff are required to ride, even of you don’t think you’ll need them. The ride starts in the dark.
—Beverages? Of course. We remain cultured, civilized ladies and gentlemen here. We’ll also have some pre-ride snacky things and some post-ride snacky things, too. Update on particulars will follow depending on the number of sign-ups.
