Last minute details
The big event is this Saturday .I just want to give you some helpfull info.
The Exit off 75 is #193 Jacaranda BLvd or Venice-Englewood. As you get off the exit
you want to turn away from the gas stations or North .Follow Jacaranda Blvd to Border road.
Take a right and go to the end of Border Road .There you'll take a left into Carlton Preserve.
Follow the signs to the park entrance.
We will park in the Horse trailer parking .Try and keep the cars close to one side so we don't take too much space away from the horse people.
There are restrooms neaby ,the water there is not the greatest tasting stuff.
Bring some as you'll need a refill.The park has a no glass bottle policy.
The 42 miles loop has water and food available at mile 15.
Next stop is your car .Then the 20 miler doesn't really have anything available .
I might have some water at the start.You are on your own!I will not go out and bail you out.
So bring anything you might need to get out of trouble (tubes,pump tools etc..).
Some parts of the trail are very remote.Help one another if needed .
At the finish I will have homemade Piggy's Revenge Sausage on the grill
and some fixin's.
Maybe a cold one or two.
There are some hotels at exit #193, #205 I think the cheapest is probably the Motel 6 in
Venice Florida on hwy 41.I will be at the start at 700 am ,sign in at 715 am
a rider meeting will be at 800 am then we start the 62 miler .
The start for the 20 will follow.
OH did I forget ?We also have a theme song thanks to Tom.
