Never could figure out why people come to Sebring. Too far from the Gulf of Mexico, too far from the Atlantic and not near enough to the Keys to count.

What gives?

My thoughts -- one of the few places in Florida with "rolling hills".


Got any pics from the ride?

Apparently you ride a different kind of bicycle from mine. My bike won't go in the Gulf or the Atlantic so I ride on the road

We have well paved back roads where there is very little traffic and no red lights, just friendly people and rolling hills.

By the way we can see the Gulf and the Atlantic from here as well as you can from Riverview

We've got some pictures on our Highlands Pedalers facebook page. I'll post some here if I can get one of my friends whose smart enough to post them.

Tractor Tom can you help us out?

If you can't post any pics a link will work.

Sebring Photos ?

Hello Red

...

I guess I haven't been on this forum much lately. I did download some photos from the Sebring rides...let me see if I can get them up here.

Lets see if any of this works before I go any farther...
