Horse Farm Hundred 2012 http://otowncycling.com/rides-events/past-rides-events/2012/item/146-horse-farm-hundred-2012 http://otowncycling.com/rides-events/past-rides-events/2012/item/146-horse-farm-hundred-2012 Horse Farm Hundred 2012

A tour through the picturesque horse farms of northern Marion county. The rides proceed through the north Marion County horse farms, past miles of wooden fences surrounding manicured pastures, many with prancing thoroughbreds who will occasionally race you along the fence. Early riders may catch a jockey working out the next triple crown winner on one of the practice race tracks along the route. After traversing country back roads to get back near Gainesville, the ride traverses the most scenic portions of the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail. Speeds will need to be moderated to avoid conflict with other trail users and to make sure you stay on the trail as it twists and turns. There will be an alternate route for those following the pace vehicle and who insist on maintaining high speeds to the very end.

Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis, individuals with a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex shall not attend this event. This is because B. cepacia can be passed between individuals who have CF through close proximity. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death.

Despite this policy, there might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. Learn more about alternative ways in which a person with B. cepacia can participate, or call the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.
