We will meet at Shamrock Park in Venice at 10AM on Saturday, August 11th. 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 lunch at Laural Park. This is a good point for those wanting a shorter ride to turn back (Shamrock to Laural Pk. and back is about 10 miles.) 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 27.86 miles. Since it is not on City Streets it is much safer. Sorry for the change. I'm new at this. We will stop for drinks and lunch, bring your own. This should be a great day. Venice is a beautiful City. 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, bare right. We will be near the Nature Center (a large blueish-grey building.) Can't wait to see everyone. Remember, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
