Mike sent an email out to 28 riders referring to the plane Crazy ride so I'd say that's a good estimate. It's definitely going to be a challenging ride. I have a long range bike and I still have to make 12 stops myself. I'm less concerned about the stops as I am about the traffic in Tampa. I've been watching the patterns over the last few days trying to figure out the best time to leave Jacksonville to not get stuck in evening rush hour. That's one plus to this years ride... You don't have to leave right at 5:45 as years past.
Question is, is it OK to leave early.....as in 02:30? That could avoid a lot of traffic, but might not have daylight for certain pictures unless your headlight would light up the area. I've used my Wing's headlight many times to illuminate a waypoint for a picture.
