Late Spring Ride - End of May 2016

Post by Erik »

I'm in the early stages of planning a little ride for late next spring, probably starting the last week of May 2016.
I'm planning to ride to Key West, spend a couple days there, then over to New Orleans, spend a few days around there, and then back home. I haven't thought about the entire route yet as this is still in the early stages of planning. I'm planning this to be a leisurely affair and expect it will take 2 -3 weeks. This will be as much about the ride as it is the destination, maybe more so.

Oh, I'm finishing work in April, so that's how I am finding the time for this. Laurie won't be going with me as she will still be working. At this point I am planning to do it alone and I don't expect to get many (any) takers on this but if anyone else has the time and inclination to do this lemme know.

Yeah, premature but I just wanted to throw it out there now to give time for anyone that 'might' be interested to do some planning.

I'd love to do that ride but first week of June is my annual trip to either the WV area or towards Nashville with my brother in law.

Not that there was any real interest in this ride (nor did I expect there to be, to be honest) but I probably won't be starting this ride until around July 1.
My sons law school commencement is going to be in June and after all the money I've spent getting him to this point I ain't gonna miss that. :shock:

An update on my ride.
It went well. Did almost 10,000 km in 19 days.
Started in Toronto, down through the eastern states to Key West, around the Gulf coast to New Orleans and then back up.
Lotsa nice roads, especially West Virginia and Virginia.
