Tour of the Quilt Country

January 21 - January 22 2018
Trenton, Florida, USA

The GCX group is again pleased to announce a limerock stage ride on Saturday 21 January. Normally held on Mother's Day weekend, this year we are experimenting with an early season classic.

Gilchrist and Levy counties each have quilt shops and quilt museums, so it is obviously "quilt country." But they also have a great network of low traffic limerock roads. You will see only one traffic signal over the 106 mile route.

The ride consists of two separate stages: the North loop is 62 miles (46 limerock) and the South loop is 44 miles (27 limerock). Riders will roll out of Trenton on the north loop first, return to parking area for an extended food stop, then do the south loop. Those looking for a shorter day can skip Stage 2.

This ride is unsupported and there are NO refueling stops on either loop. ZERO. Please plan your onboard nutrition accordingly (so you dont have to call your mum!). And bring your own lunch.

Gainesville Cycling Club members ride free, non-members also free but must sign pre-ride waiver.

Route will be posted during the week prior to ride. Park at the Nature Coast Trailhead right next to the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe.
