Florida is for Cyclists!
A growing network of paved biking trails crisscrosses Florida and comes ever closer to major connections allowing hundreds of miles of riding. Bicycle touring remains popular in rural areas, and many public lands throughout the state have dedicated single-track for fat-tire enthusiasts. One of the state’s longest paved bike trails, the Coast to Coast Trail, continues to fill in gaps between St. Petersburg and Titusville.
