Please remember the time change to EDT on the night of the 9th to the 10th!
We will meet at the Nature Center within Shamrock Park in Venice at 10:30AM on Sunday, Mar 10th, 2013. at 11:00AM, we will begin the ride on the Venetian Waterway Park which connects to the Legacy Trail. The group will head north towards Sarasota, stopping for a short snack unch at Laural Park. This is a good point for those wanting a shorter ride to turn back (Shamrock to Laural Pk. and back makes for about a 10 mile ride.) The rest of us will continue north towards Sarasota. At the end of the trail in Sarasota, we will turn around and head south. The ride will end back at Shamrock Park for a total of what should be about 28 miles.
We will stop for drinks and lunch, but you've got to bring your own. This should be a great day. Make sure you bring plenty to drink and your helmet. This ride will be for all level of riders, 10 to 15 MPH max. You can complete as much or as little as you like of the ride.
When you pull into the park go straight. You will come to a circular drive way, bear right, we will be near the Nature Center (a large blueish-grey building) with facilities.
Seems this coincides with the start of daylight saving time Remember to set your clocks back an hour the night before!
Can't wait to see everyone. Remember, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
