Drifter’s Lunch Ride Recap

 

The second Club ride of the year was a great success.  Steve Wishard planned and lead the ride to Drifter’s Restaurant near Astor, Fl., along the St John’s River.

12 riders departed Weedman’s grocery about 8:30AM.  The first half of the route is familiar to all who have ridden with the Club before.  The route took us down SR 13, and around Palatka then South on US 17.  That’s where it became interesting.


We made several departures from US17, enjoying the scenery and “twisty” only to rejoin US17 further south.

Don’t ever let it be said Florida has no curvy roads!  Just follow Steve through this rabbit warren he created for our ride.

I’d recommend saving it for future use.  You can intercept any portion of the route.  All paved roads, beautiful oaks and fern nurseries are located along the route.

We arrived at Drifters about 11:30 and enjoyed a well-prepared lunch.  The food was good and served promptly.

If you were unable to join us please look for future ride and events on the Club website events calendar.
