Anyone up for an over-night bicycle camping trip from Golden Gate Estates to Okaloacoochee State forest located just north of Immokalee on SR 832. Its around 50mi one way. I would leave Fri morn and be back Sat afternoon..
Ave Maria is by far one of the weirdest places I've been. Do you ever ride south to Chokoloskee? I've read that none of the campgrounds on the island have tent camping, but last time I was there I saw a campground sign that said they did.
Ave Maria the planned Catholic town. I'm not sure if it's changed now, but they have a ban on the sale of contraceptives anywhere in the town. One of the founders was involved in a child porn scandal a few years back, too. Go figure. I haven't rode anywhere around that area, but I've been out there a handful of times. I really like Chokoloskee Island.
