Bike Ride, Wed, Feb 22, 2017, 3 pm, Lake Beresford Park, Deland, FL


If anyone is interested we will be biking at Lake Beresford Park in Deland, FL to Blue Springs on Wednesday, February 22nd  at 3 pm in honor of George Washington’s birthday. George would have been a bicyclist if it had been invented back then. Instead he was forced to ride a hayburner. Bikes don’t eat, nor do they leave debris on the trail.   J
Flexible mileage and pace as always. Up to 13.3 miles of paved, off-road trails. Please let me know if you will be attending so we don't leave without you.
