    Meet at 8:30 am - Crank the Pedals at 9:00 am

    Myakka River State Park
    13208 State Road 72, Sarasota, FL 34241

    We will meet in the large parking lot that is located by Upper Myakka Lake in the center of the park. We will have a cookout after, so bring a covered dish and bring your own drinks. Please let me know what you will be bringing so we can plan accordingly.
    What can I say about this place, but spectacular. If you have not ever been here, this should be a real treat of enjoying a pristine part of Florida.Expect to see deer, boar, owls, eagles, snake, ect. ect. ect. and of course alligators. On our last kruise here we had a wild boar run right in front of us! Our last kruise can be described in one word...EPIC.
    We will kruise for about 10 miles, and if you so desire, there is a lot more kruising available!

    It was a great day.

    Picture was taken from the edge of the road about 15 feet away. His hissing told us he wasn't in a good mood.

    I hope you took a head count when the party was over. Mostly I hope you didn't find more bikes than riders at the end of the day. :wink:
    Looks like a load of fun.
