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 $55.99/night for two or more nights; $69.99 for one night.
— This route was last run in 2018. It’s got some sections of lousy pavement, and a good bit of rolling hills through the forest, but there are no individual climbs that are challenging. Additional details will be posted following the preride.
— Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday morning, at 2am: clocks will move forward an hour at that time. For those taking longer than 21 hours to complete this ride, don’t get confused about the occurrence of the time change. The ride starts at 5am EST. It’ll finish at 9am EDT on Sunday. That’s 27 hours, not 26 (you didn’t lose an hour) or 28 (you didn’t gain one, either).
