I'll be doing this one this year and hope to see some of the Central Florida BF members there.

Is this the same ride as the fresh air ride? I did that this year and had good time. Might do it again if I can get some peeps to go with me.... I was threatened last time with death if I made a certain some one do another century.

Do you mean the Clean Air ride? That's at the end on March every year.

I hope I'll be able to do the ride. We're building a house and it is supposed to be ready for us to move into between mid-September and mid-October. Got my fingers crossed.

Ron,

I'll be doing this ride with my buddy Frank and maybe one or two others from my cycling team. I haven't ridden up there since the Clean Air Ride that Frank and I did. Already registered for the RTT ride and looking forward to riding it and hopefully seeing you up there. We'll have to do another BF Member ride again. I really enjoyed that ride and meeting everyone.

The builder gave us closing date on the house of Sept 24 and my wife said I could do the ride regardless of the closing, moving, etc. so I'm in.
See ya there.

I'm also signed up. I wasn't sure I could afford it this year, but I've done it for the last three years so I really couldn't not do it.

I'm coming. This will be the fourth time - plan to first ride to the North trailhead this year and then ride down to Floral City and back to Inverness - about 48 miles. Figure the crowd, who likes to ride to Floral City and return will be done by the time I get on that stretch. Every year I think I'll ride my age, but every year seems like I get further away from being able to do that. Maybe this year...

Hope to see John_V and RonH this year - and yes, John - we'll plan a BF Withlacoochee Ride in March (when it should be a little warmer than last year). I'll post details as we get into next year.

I'll be there. Not sure what I'll be wearing. I ordered two jerseys. I hope they get here by Saturday so I can have something new for the ride.

I will be wearing my 2009 MS 150 jersey or my Hillsborough County Fire Rescue team jersey. Bringing them both as I haven't decided which one I will be riding in, but most likely the HCFR team jersey.

I'll be wearing either my Gainesville Cycling Club jersey, or if I can fit into it, the Tour de Melon jersey.
