Feet First No More?

Feet First was a small group of recumbent riders based in the Gainesville, Florida area. They had the “Do it feet first” website (http://www.doitfeetfirst.com/) for a time. Are there any recumbent riders from Feet First still out there? Whatever happened to Feet First?

The parade is Friday, Oct 16th, starting at 12n. A few members must be there starting at 9:30am, but the bulk of us do not have to arrive until about 11am. Our unit is in Wave 4, and I expect us to be done by about 2:30pm.

As with last year, we will be meeting up in the O’Connell Center parking lot (exact location to be determined). The parade finishes just south of University Ave. and Main Street in downtown. Following the parade, many of us will be gathering at The Kickstand community bike shop (722 S. Main Street).

Thank you!
