Burger ‘A’ Group (100K / 60 miles) – The ride will begin at a neutral pace until as we head South on US and eventually head East towards AIA where the pace will pickup and controlled at a steady (up to 27 mph) paced by select riders and escorted by the Florida Highway Patrol. There will be a short rest stop, photos at the halfway mark (30 miles) at the office of Bill Bone in downtown West Palm Beach and the food will be amazing. We will have water, Coca-Cola, and snacks. Restrooms will be made available. Please bring plenty of fluids for the return ride. On the return, the pace will resume as soon as the group is on A1A.. After Linton Blvd (3 miles to ride to Spanish), Florida Highway Patrol will clear the road so that the group can sprint at the proverbial imaginary finish line :). Map – Strava Route
