How is the Apalachicola National Forest. Any good riding there?
Take I75 north at the I10/I75 interchange. Go 5 miles to the first exit. Turn right until you get to the flashing light, approx 3 miles. You are in White Springs, Fl. Do not blink! You'll miss it. Turn right, go one block, turn right again. You will see the Suwannee Bicycle Association office on the right just a couple buildings down. Or google their website. Many of their members are from Jacksonville which is about an hour and a half away. Beautiful area to ride on road or off. I have ridden their roads at fat tire and road festivals in the past. You'll ride on lightly travelled country roads and along the the Suwanee River. So nice. Small towns like Jasper, White Springs, Wellborn, Live Oak, etc have great roads for riding.
