    Does anyone have any information on this ride or a link where I could get some information. My wife
    and I have a break that week and would love to ride our tandem and pull our then 21 month old son in
    a trailer. We found the ride doing a Google search looking for some ideas for our break. The
    information is supposed to be on http://bikeflorida.org, but we haven't been able to access the web
    site. Don't know if the site has been down the last couple of days or what. If anyone has a good
    link or other information it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, Gregg

    Great ride but it is already over subscribed. I just checked the site - you got it right
    bikeflorida.org - and it came right up.

    There are rumors of a significant DOS attack on some major servers early today.

    Yep. See http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A42301-2003Jan25.html for an article on
    the 'worm'.

    Yeah, we finally accessed the site and got the bad news that the ride was already filled. They
    weren't even taking anymore on the waiting list. We are just going to camp at a State Park actually
    near the start point and ride around the St. Augustine area. Sounds like it would have been a great
    ride for a Tandem with kid trailer. Oh well, maybe next year. Thanks for the reply.

    I do like BF. It makes a great early-in-the-year ride with few 'kids', good food, scenery and good
    quality roads. The lack of hills could be compensated by more miles but...

    If all goes well, we're riding from Charleston, SC to the BF start at Fernandina Beach on the ACA
    route. Then ride BF to New Smyrna Beach and back to Charleston. ~1000 miles in three weeks. Oh
    boy, oh boy.

    Sounds like you have compensated for the lack of miles in the Bike Florida Ride. Sounds like you
    have a great ride scheduled. The ride for us looked good because the mileage wasn't so grand. Though
    we used to individually ride many miles we have just been married three years are in our early
    forties and have an 18 month old son. Our mileage has gone down substantially. The ride would have
    been more suitable for our son as is. We would have had plenty of time for him to roam around. Even
    though we won't be able to attend the ride because it is booked we do have reservations for a week
    at Anastasia State Recreation Area and will do several day rides from that location. We are familiar
    with the area as we spent New Years in the area three years ago. Hope you enjoy your ride.
