    orlando area-horrible 100 beginners

    i'm back into biking after a long lay off

    looking to get some other local beginners to intermediate rider that aren't part of an establish group together for casual riding. starting easy and progressing to longer faster rides as we get better

    the horrible 100 is coming up in nov.. i am committed to doing it
    just not the full 100
    i will more then likely do the 35 mile loop, maybe the 70 mile loop

    hit me up if ur interested in ride together

    i'm in east orlando, not far from ucf

    men or women welcome

    i've go a fairly smooth area near my neighborhood i ride now, virtually no traffic and it's great for putting in a dailly 10mile ride at any pace

    I am planning to ride the full ride. I moved to west Orlando; kind of over near the theme park world. I have enjoy the move so far; but wish we could turn off this afternoon thunderstorm thing so I can ride a little more after work!

    The thunderstorm thing is just par for the course - the northern half of Florida is the lightning capital of North America after all. Here at UF we've got a whole department that studies it -they launch sounding rockets trailing ground wires into storm cells to induce lightning, like there isn't enough of it already!

    I will be in Ormond Beach next week and, would be able to ride part of the route one day during the week, but not on Sunday. PM me if you're able to ride on a weekday. Otherwise, I'll probably drive over and ride it anyway.
