Ride With Us

How This Works

We are so excited to be starting this. We have ridden with groups, ran groups, and rode alone. These days we mostly ride alone. We know that sometimes it’s more fun to ride with someone else or even a couple of more riders. 

That becomes the inspiration for this page. As full-time RVers, we generally stay in an area for 4-6 months at a time. Even though we are still working, we still have a couple of days off a week. That’s riding time!!! We generally get out at least one of those days.

We’ll Let You Know

So what we are going to do with this page is to post our ride for each week. We will post the day, the starting point, and a brief description of our itinerary.

If we are in your area and you are interested in riding with us, let us know. The easiest way is to leave a comment at the bottom of this page and just let us know you will be joining us. If you have any questions or concerns about our upcoming ride you can access our contact form by using the link below.

Figure 8 Florida Old Mines Ride

Date2/13/22
Starting Point7-11
Starting Address7011 Cypress Gardens Blvd, Winter Haven
KSU11 am
Approx Miles80

Phosphate mining is done to produce chemical fertilizers. When you think of mining you usually think of something that is occurring underground. Mostly all phosphate mining is done in a pit. This ride will cruise past two old phosphate mining sites in central Florida. First up will take us down Agricola Rd where Swift & Company operated a phosphate mine. It’s long gone but we can still ride down the curvy road. The next spot we would be riding by is the old location of the Noralyn Mine. This mine was shut down in 1997 and imploded (leveled) on February 5, 2015. [Click this to watch the video of it being imploded] Again, we can still enjoy the twists & turns on Noralyn Mine Rd.

Ride Around Flathead Lake

Meet-Up Address3450 Tina Ave, Missoula, MT 59808
KSU11AM
Approx Miles221

Man-O-Man do we need wind therapy. We have just completed a cross-country trip in the RV and are now staying at the KOA in Missoula Montana. While it has been cold at night and a little chilly during the day, this Thursday is supposed to be in the ’70s!!! We know this is short notice and we’re not sure if there are any riders in Montana yet, but we are putting this ride out there for anyone who is near us to join us. We are going to head up to and around Lake Flathead. There is a state park (we love state parks!!!) on both the east and west sides of the lake. We will not be visiting them on this trip. We are just looking to get out and ride. We know it’s a lot of miles for one trip (sunset is not until 8:40 pm!!!) but if you are around us and just want to do all or part of the trip with us you are more than welcome. Use the link below to let us know if you will be joining us for part or all of this trip. This ride is one of many we will be putting together during our spring/summer stay in Missoula.

Update

What a nice ride. Although there were not a lot of places to pull over and view the lake, the ride alongside it provided plenty of scenic views. Use the link below to read about this ride. It includes a slideshow of 45 pictures and a short video.

Meet-Up Address2999 State Road 44, West

We are staying at the KOA in Deland right on the St Johns River so to make it easy we will meet anyone that wants to go at the public boat ramp right outside the gate. We put this ride together because we have not been out in a while so we are festering and are in need of some wind therapy!!! This is loosely put together and can easily make any adjustments if necessary.
