Catch The Sunset

Its getting warmer so it's time to celebrate the sun going down...for Clearwater -[masked]:31 PM EDT Sunset

Lets head over to Dunedin and ride the Pinellas Trail down to Clearwater. From there, take the Memorial Causeway and Sand Key bridges over to Gulf Blvd down to Indian Rocks Beach to celebrate the sunset on the beach. Once that event is over go back over the Belleair Causeway and bridge back up along the Pinellas Trail.

Proposed Route for the 27.9 mile ride.

Bring water, bring a snack, and bring a friend!

Please plan to get to the start point in time to let us get a start at the start time.

If not there when we're ready to roll out, please don't expect everyone to move to your schedule

    Belated Thumbs-Up! Was great to see old friends (Sue, Drew, Sheila, John), great to make new friends (Doug, Dawn Marie, and Laura), and a great night for a ride down the beach. Doug/Drew: once it gets cooler, we should plan some lunchtime rides on base.

      Lunch time rides happen now on base - just i can't keep up with their pace - last one i tried i got dropped at 26mph on the back stretch north of the runway out by the Tinker gate.

    Thank you to all the riders. I really enjoyed the ride. See you all on the next one if I don't have to work.

    Great ride - first time for many of those with us tonight, and first time in a long time I'd been through Clearwater. Came out great,just the bridges seem to get higher every year.

    Drew, good to have you in my neighborhood again! I'll be coming from MacDill, so if there are any carpool opportunities, that would help me get to Dunedin faster. Otherwise, the 200X out of downtown Tampa will get me across the Courtney to McMullen-Booth, and I'll bike across CW to catch you all on the trail or bridge. I'll be a one-way rider, since IRB is 5 miles from home for me. Don't know whether your group does this, but Thai Pan Alley is right off the beach (no view, but only about 50 yards to the beach) -- so you could call ahead a take-out appetizer order for nosh during the sunset:

    Just a thought.

    Looking forward to it!

    Will there be enough light to ride home?

      Since the Indian Rocks Beach access is about 11 miles back to Dunedin, I'd have to say most likely not, and would highly suggest only joining us if comfortable riding before and after dusk. I'd venture a guess that it will be almost dark when we get back to Dunedin.

      Also, bunch together when you're going through North Clearwater. I was accosted by teenagers and chased by two dogs one night last year in that area.

      Really depends on who shows up, but most likely in the 13-18 mph range
