Meet at the north end of Riverside Park (technically, the picnic area is probably the southern side of McWilliams Park) at the southeast base of the Barber Street (Hwy 60) bridge, 3341 Bridge Plaza Dr, Vero Beach (click here for map).  Look for us near the restrooms in front of the fire house.  So long as you can sustain a moving average of at least 14 mph, "Last in Larry" will make sure that you are not left behind.

This ride is great for riders looking for an introduction to pace line riding and for faster riders coming back from health issues (or those who just need a recovery ride). Road bikes with clip in pedals are recommended, but not required. We tend to work hard within the abilities of the group.  If you don't like to sweat, this might not be the ride for you.

Join the group after the ride for a casual lunch at a local restaurant to be selected by the ride leader (which probably means fajitas and margaritas).
