I guess there is still time to reconsider, but....
September 4 · 6:30am - 1:00pm
Location John Stretch Park
Most of the route is on the levees which are super smooth paved asphalt about 10 feet wide with no traffic allowed, what a relief to ride with no cars.
The path looks like this (click the link for an overview)
Here are some other pix:
There are a couple of good climbs (for FLA) with a few bridges especially the one over the St Lucie canal, it comes at about 90 miles and hurts, take a look
and this in Moore Haven
We will drive and meet at John Stretch Park which a nice little park with bathrooms and a nice parking lot and is situated right on the levees edge, the park is about 5 miles west past South Bay on US27 on the north side of the road.
The ride will leave at 6.30am, we cannot leave any earlier as it will be pitch dark and there are no lights out there at all, it is about an hour and a half drive north of my home and about an hour drive from Palm Beach.
This is not an organized ride as there is no SAG. It is being set up by a local enthusiast who has done this ride the last 6 years.
It will be hot and humid (90 and 90) and then there is always the possiblity of a freak storm, but not so much early. I think it will be a real test!
