Riders: The Gibtown Bikefest is an annual Tradition. It is another opportunity to get much needed “biker stuff”, to see and be seen in the biker community and some folks just love the music. Traditionally we do a ride and then end the ride at the Bikefest. I propose we meet at the 301 Family Diner, eat some breakfast and head out on a local Brandon/Valrico/Seffner/Riverview backroads ride. The ride will be about 60 miles ( /-), start down Lithia Pinecrest and branch off various roads from there. I will find the curviest roads that I can in that area. We will have a stop Bartow American Legion Post for a break and a drink. While at the Legion, I will also provide a history of the Bartow Army Airfield (provide some photos) and its contribution to WWII. On our way to Gibtown, we will stop at a gas station to allow folks to gas up and grab a snack. Then we will take Balm Riverview to Riverview Road to the Bikefest. Once we get at the Bikefest, riders are on their own to enjoy the event. Our KSU from the 301 Diner will be 10:00am
