    Gainesville fl

    Hey Guys,

    I live in Gainesville, FL and I see there was an old post about rides that was pretty popular until last year. Anyone want to get together and ride? I can ride pretty much any day or night (except Tuesday nights and Wednesdays). I know there have to be plenty of people on here from Gville.

    Hey, most of us moved over to www.flfixed.com. There's a bunch of people from all over Florida on it, but a good number from Gainesville too.

    Right now, there's a pretty regular (I think...) fast-ish ride that is on Tuesdays, 6:00 at Spin Cycle, 400-block of W. University Ave.

    See you around!

    Eh, yeah, that Monday ride isn't really happening so much right now...

    But there is a 6:00 ride on Tuesdays that leaves from Spin Cycle.

    I'd like to bump this thread, how do I go about getting involved in the cycling community here? I'm very close to the NW Chevron gas station -- I see numerous cyclists meeting there just about every weekend during many parts of the year. Any insight?

    I know this is an old thread, but I'll give it a shot. I just moved to Gainesville and need some people to ride with. I know about the gcc, and I'll be signing up soon. But in the meantime! I need some evening/weekend riding buddies. I leave out from micanopy after 5:20 and I'm free in weekends. I'm a roadie, but I just bought a mountain bike to spice things up a bit. I've only rode a few times since I've been here and my avg speed is about 21mph solo. I'm okay with going a little slower though.
