Florida Bike Safari Pictures:

grammypApril 27, 2007

Here are some of the pictures we took at the Bike Safari:

The first ride, Friday morning. The mascot of the host bike club (Florida Freewheelers) is the flamingo, so Pinkie rode all week on the back of our bike.

I had to hold the camera up to get a picture over DH's shoulder. This is just a typical road we took.

The rest stop at White Springs.

This is the Piscola River (I think). At least it is one of the lovely rivers we crossed during the week.

This is Cherry Lake 4H camp.

Spanish moss flowing in the breeze.

There is supposed to be a bald eagle in the center of this one. Just looks like a speck.

The JustIn Case band played for us twice, once in Live Oak and again at Cherry Lake.

The Dixi Grill catered the meals and the food was great. Even after riding all day I still managed to gain 2 pounds, so now it is back on the diet. It was a great week!

Those two pounds are muscle from all the manual, or would that be pedal, work you just did. Don't forget muscle weighs more than fat - inch for inch. It's denser.

Love the pictures.

Great pictures - what fun that must have been! The terrain looks fairly flat - not too many hills I hope! It would be hard to do in Colorado - unless you like mtn biking!
Thanks for sharing.

Glass, you are right I just added 2 pounds of muscle!!

Polardream, it was pretty flat, but at least on hills you do get to rest. On flats you have to pedal all the time, and in Florida there is always a wind. And it seems to always blow against you.

Kit, it was beautiful, I just love Florida.

Geri, we were at Live Oak for 3 days and Cherry Lake for 3 days. Some of the rides at Cherry Lake went into Georgia. We rode thru Quitman GA one day, it is very pretty there.

Thanks for sharing your great photos. I finally found 'em today (looked in QF Gallery and Camping Forum days ago --but of course, no luck. HA HA) Beautiful scenery and looks like a lot of fun. I'm impressed that you had a band providing musical entertainment. We've vacationed in N. Florida a couple of times (a great place to go in January when you live in northern Minnesota) and have gotten to paddle on Suwanee River, using an outfitter from White Springs for our shuttle.
