Well there really is no reason not to go on a short bike tour. I just quit my job and got married (she is in Venezuela until we work out the immigration situation). I used to live in Tampa, Florida and always wanted to ride from there to Gainesville (UF grad). Ohio State plays the Gators on Saturday in basketball in Gainesville so what a great excuse to get rid of that nagging feeling about never having made the ride. I'm loading the car and driving from Ft. Lauderdale Fl to Tampa immediately and will begin riding tomorrow. Ciao

Just made it back from a quick little tour. Tampa to Gainesvelle in time to see the Gators give it to the Buckeyes in college basketball. Hope it happens again in football pretty soon. The trip took me up the Suncoast Parkway Trail and a short distance on the Withlacoochee Trail. A great ride and the recently put together Fuji was a champ. Sorry no pictures - maybe Santa will bring me a decent camera for Christmas.
