SELF-GUIDED MOTORCYCLE TOURS While Florida’s attractions make it a great vacation destination, for us at MotorcyclingFlorida.com it’s a starting point for some remarkable motorcycle tours. Understand that the directions we provide are merely suggestions and are those we have found to be scenic and are not necessarily the fastest or shortest distance between two points. These rides are for cruising and for stopping wherever and whenever you want to experience places you find captivating.
PLENTY OF MOTORCYCLE ROADS Florida has nearly 10,000 miles of non-interstate, State Roads and US Highways just waiting to be explored. We consider shorter rides to be under 3 hours from start to finish not including stops along the way. Obviously these self-guided tours can take hours longer given all there is to see and do in the Sunshine State.
TAKE YOUR TIME Plan on taking your time when you’re away from the Interstate Highways and allow yourself to enjoy pristine soft sand beaches and small town sleepy quirkiness that only local roads and highways can offer. Shorter rides afford you the time to stop and experience Florida’s natural beauty as well as the attention-grabbing flare of its eclectic mix of towns and cities.
GREAT FLORIDA BEACH RIDES With 825 miles of stunning beaches you don’t need to travel far within the State to get your toes in the sand. The State’s coast is lined with Florida beaches, some of the best to be found anywhere. From the panhandle to Naples the Gulf of Mexico laps gently at the shore. From Jacksonville to Miami and on to Key West you’ll find soft sand beaches made for relaxation.
EXPERIENCE FLORIDA Florida’s rich history unfolds before you while you ride leisurely through horse country as you near Ocala on US301 or cruise through citrus groves and past endless fields of sugar cane along US27 on the way to Miami. Take an airboat ride in the Everglades and witness alligators and other species in the wild.
WHERE TO STAY If you are planning on motorcycling in Florida and you want to reach out to different areas of the state consider vacation homes rentals for staying over. Many rent by the night and some have attached garages which provide security for your bike while not in use. This venue can also work well if you plan to stay in one central location to experience various day rides and return in the evenings.
For your convenience we include some points of interest among the ride directions. We hope you stop and enjoy some of them. Now strap on your biker boots, and thanks for visiting MotorcyclingFlorida.com.Jacksonville Beach to St Augustine
