LTC Florida 2013, transportation for you and or your bike
« on: December 15, 2012, 07:35:10 pm »
Just got into the LTC from the waiting list.
I HATE airports and all the crap that goes with it. Add to that trying to do it with a fully dressed Surly and my aggravation is already building.
So, I will be driving down from Massachusetts in a Toyota Tundra, the bike can stay fully assembled and no airports.  I plan on doing it in 2 days. arriving in Clermont on the 23rd. and departing on the 28th.
If you are on the eastern seaboard and are planning to attend the LTC, I would be willing to take 1 passenger and bike/bags. The jump seats in the back of the Tundra would not be comfortable for additional folks. I am thinking about going 81 instead of 95 as I have never driven that way before, so if your near the route and would like to join me drop me a note at joe@bicycle365.com

This may sound stupid, but what is LTC Florida 2013? I live in Tampa about an hour from Clermont and was just wondering?

Like most questions, Google answers all. LTC is the ACA's Leadership Training Course. It's a prerequisite for ACA tour leaders. In 2013, the ACA is offering six sessions of this course. One of them is in Florida.

Rather than starting a new thread, I have a question about Florida.

I want to drive from North Carolina where I live to the west coast of Florida within the next 10 days. I am hoping to camp out of my P/U while doing long Gulf coastal day rides. Can someone who knows the area advise me as to the bike routes and roads which are bike friendly there please? Can reasonably priced campgrounds be found with vacancies this time of the year? TIA.
