    Largo here. Some Friday’s, Saturday’s better. Sunday’s out.
    Name a Saturday.
    Is that pic right up from the sail club? Across the street from the firehouse? Got a coworkers truck stuck there once. Buried it to the axel. Then the battery died. Walked to the firehouse to borrow a booster box. Fun times.

    Exactly that place. Sounds like fun getting a truck stuck there

    Brooksville (SR50 & Spring Lake Rd.) at the gas station. Usually get there about 8, then ride from there.

    I'm going on a New Year's Day morning ride, leaving about 7, headed back roads towards east of Brooksville, then back roads up to Peck's Seafood on Ozello Rd. between Homosassa and Crystal River....if anyone is interested.

    Went out for a nice ride today not far from euro cycles. Made a friend too, (cheers Lurker Joe and thanks for showing me some new roads! ) and the weather couldn't have been any better really. I suppose the very light traffic was an added bonus at that. All of which isn't easy to find during snowbird season.

    Anyone interested in riding this Saturday, back roads to Cresent City, eat at Three Bananas, then another set of back roads back? One way is approx. 170 miles. Leave time for me in Clearwater, is 8:00 am. This is not a race to get there. Speed limit + 10 max.

    @Olderslowerguy just saw your post and realizing it's probably too late but figured I'd ask. Do you have a meeting spot in clearwater?

    Hope it's a great ride regardless with better weather than this afternoon!

    I'm in for tomorrow. How long you talking about riding? Any direction you interested in going? Lunch ride? Leaving time?

    @Olderslowerguy thanks for the reply! I'm game for tomorrow. How about 2-4 hours heading out from Pinellas going north and/or east ? Leaving time early, maybe 8 or 9 at the latest? I'd love to explore some new roads with someone who knows the area well.

    I'd be happy to text and/or call you this evening for specifics or alternatively just name a place and time not too far, I can be there.

    Tell me which way you will be coming north from St. Pete, then we can figure out a place to meet.
