Shona, Let me recommend the Orlando area for your riding pleasure, countless hotels/motels within a short driving distance of some of the finest trails in the state. Start with the West Orange Trail one day, next day do the Seminole Wekiva and part of the Cross Seminole Trail, day 3 and 4 The Spring to Spring Trail and The Cady Way. Day 5 drive a short distance and ride The James Van Fleet. There is no shortage of good eating establishments in the area. You can ride for a week and never see the same thing twice. If you need additional info let me know. There are several cycling clubs that you can ride with as well. The Florida Freewheelers have rides almost every day of the week.
