There’s roads, and there’s roads, And they call. Can’t you hear it? (Bruce Cockburn)

Picking a place to visit by bicycle is really easy. You go online. Check out popular routes on Strava or MapMyRide. Use routes from East Coast Greenways or Adventure Cycling.

My favorite place is a blog, Bicycle Routes 305 (Descubriendo La Florida). It has ideas for rides all over the state of Florida. Take your bike on your car to the route's start for a day trip. Or string routes together for a multi-day adventure.

Use Google maps to find lodging, convenience stores, restaurants, and the like. It's not foolproof, but it works for the most part.

Go by yourself or take some friends. Don't you hear the roads calling?


  1. Hey, what a surprise! That's me, hahaha! I'm currently working on my most recent routes (95 & 96) and I hope it would be published really soon. This time, I visited a lot of new amazing places around the Tampa Bay area.

    I'm glad you like it and thanks for sharing!

    Shhh, don't you hear the call?

    1. When I first came across your blog, I was living in south Highlands County. I enjoyed your photos and description of some areas we had also ridden. Soon I was checking your blog for ideas for rides. It's a great resource. Thanks for putting it out there! Looking forward to the new routes.
