I went up to Brooksville at o dark thirty for this ride. I was signed up for the 64+ miles. My old friend Steve Diez was there. He works for the Hernando County MPO and helps with bicycle lanes, paths and trails.
Steve was going to go short and it was great to see him. I had not seen Steve for a bit and two weeks ago saw him at Bike Florida. I was going long and I ended up riding with a nice group of people from Witer Garden, Florida. Did I say it was hilly? Everytime we seemed to get out of some rollers a few more came our way. Went out to fast too and that did not help. The roads were gorgeous.
We hoped on the Withalacoochee State trail a couple of times.
I should have taken a picture of the road arrows for this ride. They were DARK GREEN. I could not make that up. It was confusing to say the least. First SAG was at mile 39+ as well.
It was a good ride for fitness with the rolling hills. It did seem like that at the end of the day a couple hills into Brooksville were just kind of killers. Slowed at the end due to a too fast rollout and pulls. It was a beautiful day with a real nice bunch of people. Peace out Tres dog.
