    Cool Bicycle Ride

    Bike Ride Florida Winter 2018 EM.jpg


    I couldn't stand another day of Michigan weather,
    so I headed to Florida for some bike riding!

    Florida unfortunately is rated #1 in bicycle fatalities.
    Because of this fact, they have built some of the finest
    off-road, dedicated bike trails you'll find anywhere.

    Below are some of the bike trails I rode the past 2 weeks
    These are highlights, not all.







    "The Kissimmee Loop"
    http://www.bikeorlando.net/kissimmee-biking.htm

    This bike trail is NOT a connected loop as stated! The north part is the best. I rode 31 miles this day @ 85 degrees.

    Cool

    Pleasant Hill Trail http://www.bikeorlando.net/pleasant-hill-pathway.htm


    Ok, this one was not my favorite one either. As a matter of fact, it only got good
    when the boring trail ended and I "wandered" into a private community for some
    very nice biking...

    28 miles @ 84 degrees for the day.

    West Orange Trail (and South Lake Trail) http://www.bikeorlando.net/west-orange-trail.htm

    Ok, this is the "Mac Daddy" of bike trails! It is 20 miles long (one way) and has stations every 5 or 6 miles
    with bike shops for parts & service, restrooms, snacks and parking. This is a biking interstate! By far my
    favorite trail that I rode twice. Once at 41 miles and one at a new all-time personal one day record of....
    61 miles @ 88 degrees!

    Old Town https://myoldtownusa.com/

    This is not really a biking area, but it is a great (free) place to visit when
    you're in the Orlando / Kissimmee Florida area.

    Free car shows every Friday & Saturday and a free outdoor movie on Sunday.
    Tons of things to see & do.

    You definitely put some miles in. Looks like a nice trip and a great get away from cold weather. Do you have a place to stay down there?

    It didn't rain the entire 15 days I was there! I had a smoke'n hot deal for a
    place to stay, a Christian campground, I helped with a little maintenance work
    around there and "overpaid" them $200 for the 15 days stay. I had a very nice
    cabin with it's own private bathroom.

    It was a GREAT roadtrip! The mid to upper 80's were very comfortable,
    felt like 75 degrees here, because there is very low humidity in the winter
    in Florida.....summer on the other hand, you'd melt at those temps!






    A visitor stopped by to see me...

    Wow, $200 for the stay is a great price. I'd do that every winter if I were you!
