I have thought about doing this ride since I was in my early 20’s ..some 40 years ago.
Our local paper, the St.Pete Times went so far as to have its own cross state ride a couple times back in the 70’s .Of course in South Fla this worked out to 120 miles ,the idea being to start with your back wheel in the Atlantic and finish the same day with your front wheel in the gulf of Mexico.
I know that the spandex clad dude and dudettes are a large part of the crowd, but what i’d like to know is there any proportion of the crowd who rides at the 9 -10 mph pace? My wife and I both average around 9 mi. per hour on long rides on our terra trike rovers. Do many seniors participate in the ride?
Thanks in advance,
