If I end up going to the University Of Chester in September I'm gonna need a new bike. I have one in the garage, I went to check it out the other day and the condition is awful. Now I'm gonna have to buy a new one! angry.gif

there are plenty of hills in Florida.  I rode in the Hilly Hundred last fall and I was probably barely breaking 6-7 mph near the top of a few of them.  That ride is in eastern pasco county and southern sumter county near Dade City/Zephyrhills.  I also understand they have some nice ones around the Mount Dora area north of Orlando.  

I got in a quick 22 mile ride this evening on the Suncoast Trail in pasco near Land O'Lakes.  Very windy.

Any trail riders here? Offroading?
If you're thinking about buying a bike in 2009, you might want to think about buying now.  I heard the prices of bikes for 2009 are going up 20-25%.

got in 28 miles this morning before it got too hot or the thunderstorms started.  Solo, averaged 16.2 mph.  About 17 of the miles were on roads with 11 on the trail here.  I had to park near a McDonalds and a van coming towards me ran their stop sign as I was turning left after stopping for my sign.  I did end up dropping the bike on the pavement but I was able to stategically hop off and avoid stepping on the bike.  I looked at her and she was wearing cycling clothes and had bikes in the car.  You would think that a fellow cyclist would know better.  Did she stop?  Nope.  Just yelled sorry out the window and kept going while I'm standing there picking up the bike and tring to avoid getting hit by someone else. rage.gif
