Then he needs to race with the rest of us geezers then. School over cycling? Where are your priorities man?

Ask me that question again after Jul 23rd.

Make sure you do something obnoxious when everyone's jammed in the hotel room this weekend too. Someone needs to keep my legacy alive.

I just noticed that the Sunday route posted in the race guide (http://www.floridacycling.com/flyers/ocalaflyer10.pdf) is a little different from what was posted on the floridacycling site a couple of weeks ago. With the newly posted route (if accurate) I'm not sure which way it goes.

I may have to babysit PPD this weekend. I'll be really pissed if I just spent registration fees for nothing.

If you have to bail post to the Team Florida listserv. Tim will usually let somebody "sub" in on somebody else's registration.

Nice job both of you. I need to get out to the Ocala race. Last time I was there the wife and I were living in Gainesville and we were SCUBA diving the freshwater springs in the state forest. I'd love to ride the course sometime soon with an eye towards racing it.

Never cave dived. Margin for error way too slim for me (though I did skydive----once). I think it was Alexander Spring that we would go to. Lots of fish at the cavern entrances and good u/w photography opportunities. Shoot some Cheez-Whiz and have 1000 bream surround you in a few seconds.

This is getting to be a long time ago. I finished my MA at UF in '91.

I remember thinking even then that the state forest would be a great ride.
