Mondays are for Biking

Most Mondays, weather permitting, Becky and I go biking on the Withlacoochee Trail.  Although the trail is over 40 miles long, we favor a section stretching from Inverness to Floral City.  It's nearly 14 miles round trip and the Shamrock Inn in Floral City offers a $.99 breakfast if you get there before 11 AM.  For this low, low price, you get an egg, any style, hash browns and toast.  Coffee is extra.  The inn is right on the trail and many bicyclists take advantage of the bargain meal.  So, on Mondays, we load the bikes on the car, drive to Inverness where there is convenient parking at Wallace Brooks Park.  It's a nearly seven mile ride to Floral City.  We eat our breakfast and ride back to Inverness. 

Today was beautiful weatherwise.  Sunny with temps in the mid 70's, perfect for biking.
