Join up with the CCC Bandits and do the Courtney Campbell

Let's start out a bit earlier and just make our way over to the meeting point for the CCC Bandits ride across the new bridge.  Just adding a few extra miles.

4411 S. Himes Ave ‎ rather than 5900 W. Cypress St at 1:30PM them ride up to meet them at Cypress Point Park for their departure.   Quite straight forward getting there - Himes to Euclid to Lois to Cypress to the park.  As noted below, you can also meet us at various points along the way.

The rest is copied form the CCC page:

Courtney Campbell Causeway bridge.

This will be a no-drop ride. I will sweep the group to insure no one gets left behind, but anyone can go faster if they wish. This route is suitable for a road bike, mountain bike, or something in between. 

Starting point is at the Cypress Point park, which is at the very western end of Cypress St. Address is: 5900 W Cypress St, Tampa, FL 33607.

Route is about 17 miles, round trip as shown here:  http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3869846 As the route is linear it can be shortened by turning around at any point. The entire route, except for a couple of crossings, is on a bike path. 

=======================================

You can shorten the ride to about 11 miles by starting from the beach parking lot, which is located at about the 3-mile mark on the link above.  If you start from this location be ready to roll at 2:45. (15 min after the starting time above). 

Ben T Davis Beach, West Courtney Campbell Causeway, Tampa, FL, 33607

======================================= 

Parking is plentiful, and free, at both the Himes YMCA or at the Cypress Point park starting point.

    Great group as always. Nice 1st half of the ride. If anyone is interested, here is an article in the Times about the tacks on the Causeway trail. http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/bicyclists-find-hazard-along-courtney-campbell-trail/2160727

    Looking forward to getting back with the group. December at the Post Office is not conducive for any kind of life. Much less social life. Looking forward to getting some good miles in the saddle. Sounds like a great ride. See you all there.

    Drew, looks as if I'll already be there (Cypress Park, not YMCA), playing volleyball with Tampa Bay Adventures (we're riding over the causeway at 10am). Would be great to catch up with the Freewheelers and meet some Bandits. I signed up on theirs as well, and made a comment on TBA... think of the networking! :-)

    Just to be clear Drew, are we meeting (parking) in the Little League parking lot at 1:30 pm?

    January 9, 2014

    • Drew H.

      Yes, we will meet in the parking lot between the YMCA and the baseball fields on S Himes for a 1:30 roll out. We'll then meet up with the other group at Cypress Point Park.

    I was just there today, on the norm it is a very nice ride but with the cold front coming the wind was brutal! See you Sunday.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
