Ride to SugarLoaf Mountain

Tallest "hill" in Florida outside the panhandle. This will a little bit longer ride, haven't got the exact mileage down yet.
Anyway, want to start the New year out right with a great ride. We will eat at Rainbow Rest. back in Groveland. Ate there twice, has a nice fried chicken buffet for about $7.50.

More info to follow.

KSU at 9:00, come a little early for safety briefing.

    What a day. Little did I expect that when I turned the heat off before leaving the house, that I would return to find it colder inside than it was outside. Brrrrr. Definitely an interesting ride. Lakeshore Drive and Lakeland Acres were some very nice roads. It's a shame Rockridge was in such disrepair. But even with the long ride, the cold, the near-misses, the "why did the puppy cross the road?", I still had a blast. Roy: good to see you again. Don't make the next one so long. David: Sorry to see you drop out. Hope everything was OK. Marsha: Good to see you again. Eric & Christina: Nice to meet you guys. By all means, throw you hands in the air!

    Dennis: Stop talking to me, man. I don't want people to know we know each other. You've been hanging out with Jack too much ... you're starting to have gender issues, too (although Tina did tell me that you did at least try to use the urinal in there). Go get your finger fixed, and keep it out of your nose next time you get in a fight.

      Swelling? It's not one of those 9 months conditions, is it?

    Hi, this ride is still a GO. Temps will be Cold to start but should warm up. Remember to layer, layer, layer. I like riding in the cold but it can be a challenge. If you decide not to ride please change your RSVP so we will know how many. And I will probably do it again in a month or two if a lot don't go tomorrow
    Might be an hour and a half before pitstop, get plenty of gas.
    Hope to see you in AM.

      Yep, downloaded the new[masked] map today and nothing works.

    Will be a little longer ride, a bit over 100 miles before we eat. So eat a big breakfast. Hah
    Will be fun, have to do some highway riding to get there, but have some "fun" roads in the mix. Including what's possibly the only hairpin in Fl. And we will ride across the "mountain" twice since it's such a great view.

    Ken and myself have ridden this area, lots of
    fun. Hope we go around the loop a few times. :)
