SCENIC RIDING MAPS

Year-round riding weather means Florida is the perfect place to be a motorcyclist. The only question, “Where do I find the best places to ride?”. Answer, “Right here”.

We've accessed the map archives from Go For A Ride Magazine to show you some of the state's best back roads for motorcycles with turn-by-turn directions. We call them “Go For A Ride Classics”. Go FAR was one of Florida's most popular motorcycle magazines and featured a scenic ride map as the centerfold for each issue.

Each monthly route was crafted specifically for the magazine and encouraged riders to explore the backroads of Florida. Riders looked forward to each new ride and many collected the maps and continue to use them.

We've selected some of the best of those maps, made some updates and put them here in an easy-to-print PDF format.

We've got FREE Scenic Ride Maps for you to download.

It's old school and it's FREE! Let us know what you think of the rides and please share them with your riding buds. Ride at your own risk, wear appropriate safety gear, and ride sober.

Webster, FL

Scenic Ride 01

Webster is a great destination for the weekly flea market on Mondays or the Sunday monthly motorcycle swap meets.

Summer Splash Ride

Scenic Ride 02

This is a short, but very good, ride and can be considered a sampler for some of the many excellent riding roads found in Pasco and Hernando counties.

Picasso Strawberry

Scenic Ride 03

If Pablo Picasso were to interpret Plant City's world famous  strawberry, the outline might resemble our map route.

Roads to Bok Tower

Scenic Ride 04

Webster is a great destination for the weekly flea market on Mondays or the pt Sunday monthly motorcycle swap meets.


Meandering In Manatee

Scenic Ride 05

This ride starts in Apollo Beach and winds southward to Ellenton and back.

Strawberries and Spring Water

Scenic Ride 06

Follow this route from P-City to Z-hills and back again.

Bridges of Tampa

Scenic Ride 07

We'll cross that bridge when we come to it and this ride has you crossing all five of Tampa Bay's bridges.

"O" What A Ride!

Scenic Ride 08

The Interstate highways will get you up and down the peninsular part of Florida quickly on either coast but the good riding is smack dab in the middle of the state.


Coastal Crusin'

Scenic Ride 09

Some of the best costal roads are found in an area known as the Nature Coast which stretches from Pasco to Wakulla counties along the Gulf Coast.

Bone Valley Ride

Scenic Ride 10

Finding valleys in Florida is sort of liking searching for palm trees in Alaska.

 

There are dozens of maps in the Go FAR archives and more will be added to the website so keep checking back or sign up for our map alerts.
