Fellsmere, Beer & Dogs Ride
Sunday, October 26 at 10 am
Meet at Riverview Park in Sebastian (corner of US Highway 1 and CR512) for a ride out to Fellsmere. The route will evenly return to Sebastian. After the ride (at 1 pm), we are going to Pareidolia Brewing Co., a Vero Cycling corporate member, for beer and hotdogs.
We haven’t finalize the route but plan on around 40 miles +/-. All paces are welcome.
Park near the “Splash Pad” at the park. There are showers there if anyone wants to grab a shower before we walk over to the Brewing Co.
Last in Larry is relocating the usual Sunday NOLBR ride to Sebastian so that he and the other NOLBR riders can participate in this ride. So, don’t go to the usual starting point for the NOLBR. No one will be there. Instead, go to Riverview Park in Sebastian.
Vero Cycling Withlacooche Ride Weekend November 7-9, 2014
Join ride leader "Last in Larry" and your fellow club members for a weekend riding the Withlacooche Trail from Inverness, FL (about a 3 hour drive from Vero Beach). The Withlacooche Trail is a paved 46 mile trail. It is 12 feet wide and has facilities along the trail. For more information about the Trail, visit www.railstotrailsonline.com.
Club members will assemble at the Central Motel in Inverness (the half way point on the trail) at 9 am Saturday morning. At that point, we will organize into groups based on the riders' desired pace and distance. The faster groups will ride to either the north or south end of the trail and then turn around and return to Inverness, giving them about 50 miles. The more casual groups can ride as far as they like and turn around at any point. We hope to organize the rides so that everyone will get back to Inverness in time to have lunch together.
Most of us are driving to Inverness Friday evening and staying at the Central Motel, which is on the Trail. The Central Motel is offering special Vero Cycling rates of $53 for a room with two queen beds or $65 for their deluxe king bed room. In order the get these rates, you must call the hotel directly at 800-554-7241 or 352-726-4515 and tell them you are a Vero Cycling member. For more information about the hotel visit, www.centralmotel.com. The Central Motel offer secure bike storage.
Saturday night we will have dinner as a group somewhere in Inverness. Those desiring to stay Saturday night can ride the rest of the trail Sunday morning. We will once again organize into groups on Sunday morning at a TBD time.
