    Sounds like fun. I'm guessing the route will follow the trail north to Hernando and then west along CR486 to Crystal River.

    Not sure if my doc will let me do this since I'm having my heart cath on the 9th. He may want me off the bike for a few day while my wrist heals.

    I work nights at UF/gainesville 4/11 other wise I was thinking I would try to ride in the "cycle for success" in Marion County 4/12. but that second ride might be doable.

    Where do you find the rides? Ive always used active.com to find 5k's, and have signed on to do half's according to other friends plans.(Ie, Im signed up to do the Air force half again with a bestie). However, my friends dont ride bikes, and there doesn't seem to be many local rides on active.com

    I found this one on facebook posted on a local cycling club page. Others ones I was handed flyers at a bike shot before group rides. I have a few sites bookmarked for what active doesn't pick up. I'll have to double check what they are.

    Are you a GCC member? They list events too I believe, although they are prob the event hosts.

    I'm definitely out of the ride. Had my heart cath yesterday and they put a stent in the LAD artery. The doc said no pressure or heavy lifting (>5 pounds) with my wrist for 7 days.

    Definitely take it easy then Ron. I know there are a couple rides on May 10th. I think I'm going to do the Hernando one. I'm doing another 200k next month too (prob on the 24th).
