The Eighth Annual Long Riders Digital Scavenger Hunt 2015
Florida Coast to Coast Ride and Grand Tour, November 7th.
PLEASE NOTE: This page contains information on two separate rides -- the 10-hour Rally and the Coast-to-Coast ride. There are two separate links for registration. Please be sure you are registering for the correct ride.
This year there will be two classes of riders:
COAST TO COAST RIDERS -- we are bringing back the Florida Coast to Coast Ride, which was run for many years by Cruz'n Al Bogard, and, prior to that, by his parents. Riders will start on the Florida Gulf Coast near Crystal River at 8:00 AM on Nov 7th and ride a back-roads route of 200+ miles to Flagler Beach, finishing at Martin's Restaurant on A1A. A turn-by-turn list of route instructions will be provided. Riders registering in advance and using a GPS may request a Garmin .gdb or .gpx file containing the route. Helmets must be worn at all times while participating in the ride. We also strongly recommend full riding gear including jacket, gloves, pants, and boots. Proceeds from this ride will benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Registration feel is $25 per bike. We prefer Paypal, but will accept checks. T-shirts are available for advance registration for $20 each. On-site registration "may" be available if the event is not full. Advance registration deadline is October 20th.

ENDURANCE RALLY RIDERS -- will ride a 10-hour
mini-endurance rally which will be run from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM
on Nov 7th, from Crystal River to Martin's restaurant in Flagler
Beach. These riders will be seeking bonus locations, with varying
point values, north and south of the main route. They will likely
ride 300 to 400 miles or more in the allotted 10 hours. It should
be a low-key, fun event for novices, and challenging for the more
experienced. Registration fee is $25 per bike, single rider or two-up.
Maximum number of 10-hour riders, including pillions, is 50. We
prefer Paypal, but will accept checks. Registration deadline is
October 15, 2015; no on-site registration for the 10-hour. If you
decide after Oct 15th that you want to ride, contact the Rallymaster
and if there are slots available, we should be able to open registration
for you. Deadline for canceling without forfeiting your registration
fee is October 20th. T-shirt orders cannot be canceled after October
1st. Proceeds from this ride will benefit Eddie's Road, a program
for at-risk youth, as well as The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
