The coast to coast bike trip with Bubba on the Southern tier will launch in a few days. The route is San Diego CA to St Augustine FL. My buddy Tom G is out in San Diego and here is his photo of the start location:
I snuck a peak at the finish location last week:.
It’s been a hoot and a half to learn the touring side of biking and enjoy our beautiful county here in SW Florida. Most of my previous riding was for triathlon. In addition to enjoying being upright acquiring warm layers has been a part time job. REI —Florida needs you !!
Our local roads have been picked clean of road gold and truthfully the soft shell turtle in the pond behind the Tuesday ride location is kind of prehistoric. My little horse friend really stole my heart. The white pelicans have headed north so it must be time to ride new roads !
Thanks to all the folks at Sarasota Manatee Bike Club and Michele V for the cram course in touring. Almost 3000 miles of riding is overwhelming to consider but the tour info captured my heart at the word chef.
Thanks for following the blog and coming along for the ride.
Love to all, Remember: Be courteous !
