Although I've seen them mentioned on here I had never been to/ridden in a bicycling event before this weekend. Sebring, Florida is south, central Florida in an area we grow oranges and raise cattles. We have good roads without too much traffic and a few rolling hills. In short, we have some great riding routes. We also have an old hotel (make that "historic") that has figured out how to sell out their rooms to people who want to ride bikes. The local club (of which I am a member) marks the routes and helps with registration. This weekend was the Highlands Bikefest and the first one I attended. Had a great time, can't wait to do it again.
Anyone else participate in these events?
