Nice bike...

That looks like a Sofrider V2.1 - probably the best out-of-the-box machine we've built in terms of simplicity and versatility. It's one of my favorites; I still have one (which I modified, of course... Wink )

Cheers,

Doug

FWIW, good choice....  I'd take a new to me bike over a new laptop any day!  Especially if your old laptop is still getting it done.

Bike Sebring long loop out

Bike Sebring long loop out towards Frostproof at the turn around part way around Reedy Lake has a poker chip barrel. Part of the race process is to toss the numbered poker chip assigned to you into the barrel at the turn around to help record you were actually there.

Around 52 road miles by the time you reach the poker chip barrel. 

See the map on my ride data: http://ridewithgps.com/trips/2245489 

There is usually a farm tractor parade coming around the lake. I saw it last year but I didn't see them this year. Not sure if they were a no-show or if I was eleswhere when they went through.
