Get off the beaten path cycling from coast to coast through the historic towns and rural countryside of north Florida. Discover towns that date from the 1800s when Florida was but a wild, untamed land of forests and lakes. Explore the streets of 450 year old St Augustine, checking out locally produced craft beers and homemade ice creams. Explore an unexpected world of southern cuisine ranging from traditional catfish and hushpuppies to gourmet platters of ocean fresh grouper, shrimp and more. Cycle several of Florida's paved rail trails, cruising across the state removed from the hustle and bustle of traffic. Discover that there is more to Florida than Disney and Miami.
The streets are reasonably adapted to the presence of cyclists. The (car) traffic can sometimes be busy. The coastal region and the interior are almost flat.
Florida consists of many (sometimes drained) marshes with the Everglades being the most famous. On both sides of these marshes there are long coastal stretches of sandy beaches. The northern part is less soggy, but nowhere the surface comes very far above the water level. There are over 165 rivers and 30,000 lakes of which the Okeechobee is the largest. The most southern part is a group of islands, the Florida Keys, all connected to each other by bridges.
Florida has a tropical or subtropical climate - hot humid summers and mild winters. In the south of the state are the temperatures several degrees higher than in the far north. It is sunny throughout the year. Best season is spring and autumn – with moderate temperatures and little rainfall.
