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.
