• What we'll do
The ride will start at 1030 from the Bear Creek Park on 1st Ave N, between 58th St N and 60th St N at the concrete spillway at about 5901. There is plenty of parking along 1st Ave N. The ride will be a no-drop, 21 mile ride, with the average speed between 11-15 mph, although breakaways are available for faster riders, but no one will be left behind.
The route will take us west on 1st Ave N to Central to Gulf Blvd in Treasure Island. Then south to the Pinellas Bayway and bridge to Isla Del Sol, then north on the Skyway Trail to the Pinellas Trail and back to the starting point.

We made a facebook group because we want to reach out to the people that aren't part of meetup. Feel free to join and also add any of your friends that might want to get in on these biking events. Hopefully this will be a good way to make our group a more connected place. Our group is growing and we're adapting to make it the best it can possibly be.
