Default slow and easy biking club!

Still looking for some interest in a slower paced biking club. Since I cant fiind my way out of a paper bag, I would need someone with knowledge of biking roads and trails in TV.

Default Biking

Ok, this is not motorcycle bikes right? If it is the old peddle bikes, I'm in. I am the proud owner of a Classic Schwin from the 50's and can't wait to ride it in TV...safely.

Hi nonie,

I wouldn't mind doing some nice and easy riding when I arrive in TV in Oct/Nov. I used to be a long-distance bicyclist years ago. One of my trips was a bike ride from New York City to Williamsburg, Virginia. Met a lot of nice people along the way. Nowadays, your idea of slow and easy is fine for me. Will Bernie be riding also? Nice meeting you guys the other night. Stay well.

And no spandex allowed, right? Nonie, will you still be there mid-October? We'll be down for about 10 days and ready to ride! Maybe VK2 will lead us all.

Nonie:

Read earlier this week you were leaving the TOTV because of the new format - glad you are working into it!

We are coming in January for two months and will do some slow bike rides on hybrids - hope you're around to join in.

Thanks Chuck ,I would love to join you. Patience is not one of my virtues, I was just venting earlier in the week, addictions are really hard to give up!

Default bikini club?

i just happened to misread this title and ended up finding out about your slow and easy biking club out of curiosity...interesting to learn about your past exploits on bikes...maybe i will join you if it is not at 8 a.m. like most other sporting activities here...hard to do when dancing the night away....even though music stops at 10! bike on over to the church on the square for great free musical programs each monday and wed at 6 pm...my favorite new discovery in this wonderful place...

bikini club? Now, that's a good one. The men would not be opposed to you riding a bike while wearing your bikini ... I've seen you and I know that you must own one.

Default Bike Meandering

Hey guys, I'm still up for this too ( bike ride, not the bikini lol). If I lead, we will get lost for sure but that's part of the fun. We've only been talking about this for a year. And Noni has already explored one of the trails in Ocala. Let's do it!

Hi nONIE
If you do it again in mid to late November, I'll be a resident and would love to join in, too.
