The 15th annual Rails to Trails Bike Ride is scheduled for Saturday, October 4, on the Withlacoochee Trail. My daughter and I plan to attend this ride and either do the 60 mile or 100 mile ride. I have looked at the photos of the 2008 ride and although most of the photos were taken at rest stops and vendor stops it looks very crowded. We have ridden the trail from Ridge Manor to Inverness and really enjoyed the ride so this will give us a chance to ride the northern most section. RoMad and Boatdesign I am pretty sure you guys live in the area so your input will be greatly appreciated.
My questions are:
Have any of you done this event before?
Is the event well organized?
With 1200+ attendees is the trail crowded even though it is 48 miles long?
What are your positives about this ride?
What are your negatives about this ride?
Thanks for your valuable input and I hope to see many of you their
