Mountain Biking in Florida

February 5th, 2010

From Key West and Miami up through North Florida, the state is a bicyclist’s paradise, offering entry to some of the state’s best-kept secrets. Inviting weather year-round, unique wildlife, breathtaking coastal vistas, lush natural areas, and quaint downtowns and small towns can all be found on the paved and off-road trails described in this brochure. Leisurely rides through sandhill communities offer glimpses of wildlife such as gopher tortoises, white-tailed deer and red-cockaded woodpeckers. Two-wheel excursions along the coast and Florida bays may give rise to brown-headed pelican, dolphin or blue heron sightings. Cruise along Florida’s historic rivers, visit pre-Civil War forts and bubbling natural springs. So check the tire pressure, strap on your helmet, fi ll the water bottle, scan the sky and prepare to Bike Florida; where southern charm, sweet iced-tea and smiles await you.
