Before you pack & start eyeballing the muscle shirts/short shorts, bear in mind that the days may be nice, but it will get colder than you expect once the sun goes down. Sure, you can always layer up with all those T-shirts you were probably going to buy anyway, but you know the old saying about the prevention-to-cure ratio, right?

Oh yeah, & take your sunblock. Frequently the air will be nice and cool, but with little cloud cover và a high UV factor, perfect sunburn weather for pasty skin that’s been closed up all winter. The night air is particularly chill on sunburned skin so save yourself some misery, ask me how I know.

Be sure lớn take a head cover if you plan on riding lidless through the streets of Daytona. Humans can đại bại up to 30-percent of their toàn thân heat through their scalp, & no matter how well-dressed the rest of you is, if your head is cold, you’re gonna be cold too.

As always, this year’s xe đạp Week coincides with Spring Break for many East Coast, Southern & Eastern Mid-West colleges, và this overlap makes for some interesting mingling of cultures. Bikes, leather, girls (or guys, depending on your preferences) và plenty of entertainment of all sorts.

Oh, và there is something for the race fans as well. For the dirtbike fans we have the quái thú Energy AMA Supercross on March 4th, with names such as Canard, Dungey, Reed và Roczen on the bill.

The fun continues with a series of races in the Championship Cup Series (CCS) through the 15th, so if you miss an early one don’t fret, you will have plenty of opportunities to catch some high-speed, sportbike and superbike action.

Keep it rubber-side down, folks, & between the lines. By all means have a good time, but remember; gasoline and alcohol vày poor bedfellows make, especially on two wheels. Moderation my friends, moderation.

Update

We are a few days into the event, & it has come khổng lồ my attention that I may have been remiss in my duties. Here I am going on và on about the events at Daytona Beach, but the truth is, xe đạp Week has become so big it has spilled out into the surrounding municipalities. Most of this expansion has occurred along the Interstate-4 corridor, và besides creating the opportunity for some nice road jaunts between locations, the outlying sites have a reputation for cheaper prices. This is something to lớn remember when you start looking to book a room for next year.

I would lượt thích to offer a word of warning to lớn intrepid adventurers looking lớn traipse across the Florida countryside, which is interesting because you can be in a booming metropolis one moment, và find yourself riding through agricultural/beef country in a blink. The contrast is almost worthy of an "Outer Limits" episode, for those of you old enough lớn remember that.


Another thing you will find around that area is toll roads/bridges. Like, lots of them. Granted, it has been a few years since I lived there, but back in ’94 - ’95 when I was attending M.M.I. We had a general rule; don’t leave the house without at least $7 you don’t need for anything else, because you may need it lớn get back home.

I’m sure prices haven’t dropped in the last đôi mươi years, so be sure to lớn have plenty of pocket cash — folding và silver — before traipsing hither and yon. Oh, & before you even think about trying lớn circumvent an unmanned booth, remember there are cameras, và if you try it, you will get a ticket in the mail shortly after you get home. Ask me how I know.....
