For us, St Augustine is going to be the last of 10 straight weekends of either racing, or business travel, so could be a stretch the next week.
I may have some of this incorrect, but yes, the powers of both STR 2012 and the Florida Tandem Rally discussed dates, schedules(?) and put together a means for those traveling to effectively put together an entire week of riding.
Last year, a couple of teams from the Northeast / Mid Atlantic area brought road and off-road tandems. After Saturdays road ride, Jeanne and I showed them some off-road riding local to where they were staying. The visitors spent an entire week in Florida. Riding both road and off-road many times.
Understandably, 10 weeks flat out is a lot of time away. For us, we will be making it two weekends. STR and then FTR. Work is busy so getting the entire week off won't happen.
I posted this to show other options. As we both know, being Florida residents, you wouldn't have to ride the weekdays in one particular venue. While that may be fun, there is other road riding areas for all skill levels. Possibilities to do an overnight ride. Head to Withlacoochee Trail, visit Claremont, hit the beach, or even ride along the ocean, which if you live away from the coast, is kind of cool seeing the blue water for miles on end. we won't discuss the wind.
Regardless, hope to see you and your stoker in a few weeks.
