"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. This ride from Okeechobee to Ocala is a backroad honey hole and includes portions of three designated Scenic Byways; The Ridge is at the start, The Green Mountain winds along Lake Apopka, and the Florida Black Bear takes you through the Ocala National Forest. Ride the full route or pick out a slice along the way to enjoy.
