Welcome to BF. I'm in Tampa, but ride often over in Pinellas on a regular basis as well. Have to suggest that you hook up with the St Pete Bike Club (http://www.stpetecycling.com/) They've got very regularly scheduled rides and regardless of skill set or level, you're more than likely to find someone that would be your equal.

Thanks Drew, I've been on their website, I have yet to hook up with them to ride though. I believe they ride out of northshore park pretty much everyday.

My average speed is 12-14 usually. my longest ride to date was 28 miles, and highest speed is 25. If you want to ride the pinellas trail or meet up with me and my buddies for a ride in tampa just let me know.

I tend to ride the Clearwater East West trail a lot, sometimes i'll hit Morris Bridge or Flatwoods with my buddy in Tampa.

These aren't in your area, but you might want to check out the links

Avanti, EvilDrew, Uberalles, Anyone else following this thread. I'm doing some of the organizational stuff for next year's Tour de Cure for the American Diabtes Association. This is a training ride I'm putting together for them. Don't have many takers yet as it's not until March next year (long way off), but will admit, trying to get some more people riding in it as well. Either way, more than welcome to come on down for a self supported ride - rest stops available, but no bennies.
Date: Saturday, October 17, 2009
Time: 8:00am ~ 11:00am
Location: 901 N Shore Dr NE St Petersburg, FL 33701- Pull into parking lot on right side of pool and follow it around towards a dog park - Parking's free.
Description: Start out at The Northside Pool parking lot then go down past The Pier to Maximo Park, out to the Sunshine Skyway Fishing pier via the Meisner bridge then back up to The Pier. Option for a quick snack a the Columbia Restraunt out on The Pier and wrap it up back to the park.
Proposed Route is at http://tiny.cc/PierRide
There's a bail-out/turn around points that will enable 12 and 20 mile rides in addition to the full distance of 28 miles.

If you plan on coming down, send a PM to RSVP and I'll push out my cell number. Only asking for RSVPs so I know everyone that should be coming is there.

Rode 56.4 miles we did the sponge docks and Fred Howard park and skipped the 3 bridges.
Head wind all the way home was brutal.

We hooked up with a group out of Chain Wheel Drive as we came out of Fred Howard park.

I'm moving to Gulfport from New Jersey the end of November and prefer riding the trail as I've been hit twice by cars in the last three years on the road.
