Fast Feet First Friends

A slow, relaxing morning and an unexpected phone call resulted in an impromptu reunion with my recumbent mentor. Dave Greenbaum and I enjoyed a gorgeous and somewhat spirited spring ride around some of our old rural haunts near O'Leno and Ichetucknee State Parks.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Wayne Bettis was kind enough to show me that the trail has grown since last I rode it. The western extension has a grass lot parking area and is at FL 100 and CR 18 east, west of Keystone Heights, extending the existing trail by about two miles.
Wayne and Artie joined me for a ride from end to end for 41 miles round trip, and we also discovered a brand new trailhead in Florahome, FL with restrooms, bicycle tools, and concrete parking.
