"Bob's Tail of the Geco" Finz Finds Ride

For those of you that enjoyed the tight turns on Tail of the Gecko, here is it's northern Florida cousin.

The group enjoys a ride just for fun(and a tad bit of danger) from time to time, and we thought this would be a great way to spend a hopefully cool winter day!

We'll meet at Flying J's truck stop right off I-75 and SR 52, with KSU of 9:30 am.  ***DO NOT pay attention to the map that the meetup auto populates on this ride.  Simply exit I-75 at exit 285, and head East, Flying J is on the north (left) side of the road almost immediately.

(We want to get an early start to try to avoid summer rains.)  The total trek is about 72 miles according to the planned route, and we will likely alter the end so  we actually finish at Sleepy Hollow for an early lunch or beverage.  Looking forward to covering some beautiful miles together!

    Since I have a need to put a few miles on before tomorrow, Keith and I are heading in that direction for the Gun Show if anyone's interested :)

    Ride Cancelled - Unfortunately in the interest of safety due to current weather and road conditions we are going to have to cancel this ride. For those of you that liked Tail of the Gecco, this ride is actually better. It is better because this section of road has elevation (aka dips in the road and trees). Unfortunately the combination of four days of rain has no doubt filled up those dips with standing water and leaves. This ride is about curves and due to the weather conditions those curves are a lot more dangerous than they were a week ago. The area needs to dry out. Some curves are 90 degrees. With this in mind, we have to postpone it to a dryer day. Hope you will join us then!

      The fog here at the house is down to 3/4 mile and getting worse by the minute. As disappointed as I am, this is a day to keep the bike in the garage.
