    Went to Santos in Ocala last weekend. (Pics)

    Guys, this place is incredible!! If your ever in or within 100 miles of Ocala, FL it's worth it to check this place out. There are all types of riding here, long rides, huge jumps, huge drops, and all the technical stuff your heart desires. Here are some pics!

    That looks like fun, in a limited kind of way.

    My heart desires rockiness, exposure, and lung-busting technical climbs in addition to the stuff in your nice pics.

    13 miles!! I drive an hour to go there and I can't go enough. You need to go there Tomorrow! Each time I go to this place I find more awesome stuff. In spite of the jumps and everything it does have the rocky descents and, it has everything. Long flat rides to 40ft drops.

    I live in St Pete and have yet to make the drive up there. I usually hit Alafia (pretty awesome too). I'd like to make it up there soon, do you know if there is any good camping close by?

    I know from experience that blood sucking bugs appear from out of nowhere if you start bleeding there.

    I should also mention that having a medical "kit" made up solely of painkillers is great.

    Uh yeah, not quite 40' there. Looks more like 15 to 18' range and that's plenty burley and big.

    It looks like a great park! I have to check it out... The only other park I've been to besides miami was at Tom Brown park in Tallahassee. It was a mission to find that one...
    One day I'm gonna get over that steep climb I keep missing!!!

    It really is unbelievable! I was there again today and everytime I go, I find more awesome ****! Just when I thought I've ridden all of it I find another trail that leads to another big part of cool stuff.
