The Trans-Florida Ride – March 7-8, 2015
Several Giants have ridden this ride, it is put together by the CADS in Flatistan on ADVrider, who are also members of the GS Giants. Held during Bikeweek, the 2015 ride info has not yet been posted, but we have it on good authority that the ride is on.
The basic idea is to start near Bikeweek in Daytona on Florida’s east coast, ride across the state on Saturday, eat well that evening, camp or hotel it and then ride back across the state on Sunday for another good meal. What could be better. Stay tuned for a link when everything is announced… all the discussion on this happens on ADVrider.
March Moto Madness Worldwide – March 26-29
Oh baby, this event is going big! What started as a small meeting among friends out in the woods near Tellico Plains, TN has grown into a global phenomenon, thanks to some smart thinkin’ (and a little drinkin’) by fellow GS Giants and friends around the world. Much more information coming but the main points of interest are:
