A lot of tours are double this price or at this price you are camping.
I did two tours with them in Wisconsin that went great.
First year in Wisconsin (northwoods) I rode with a buddy and Iowa folks who did 14. He is slower so we would stop and wait here and there for him
Second year in Wisconsin (Door County) on four out of five days I rode with Indiana folks at sixteen seventeen. My buddy rode with his fiancée at about ten, I rode with them one day, as he is my friend.
Both years some folks went faster
They didn’t herd us
They marked the routes and use ride with gps too
Everyone gets a little name tag to hang on the back of your bike , so they and we know who is with group.
Groups / folks ride whatever speed they want and stop wherever they want to eat, shop, take a picture whatever. No pressure.
They have food stops and support vehicles
My guess is I will ride 14 to 16 and stop a lot for pictures, etc. It's a vacation not a race.
With over 140 people someone will be a pace you like
Most of the people were from the Midwest and super friendly
They had free beer, wine and soda every night and a happy hour. We had pools at every hotel.
It’s run by a Midwest organization
do not confuse with "ride across Wisconsin",
for December they come to Florida because Wisconsin is cold in winter.
You would need to register and pay with host organization, your RSVP here just shows you are interested.
Lots of attractions in key west, you can discuss the night before with others what you want to do, http://www.floridakeysbikeride.com/Attractions.html
Pedal Across Wisconsin (PAW) has 73 rooms reserved and are about half sold out already. They anticipate being sold out by June.
On registration put my name for prior guest (Paul Schlimme), and "meetup" for club name.
On registration we added the night before for $85 each.
I suggest send reservation sooner than later, and add the night before as an option. http://www.floridakeysbikeride.com/Register.html
On my past rides most hotels had two floors (not all with elevators) so I requested first floor as we plan to ride a tandem.
You can ask to be near us in hotel (Paul Schlimme) or not, no biggie either way.
You can ask PAW "try" to find you a roommate or post on here if you need one.
