While I'm here temporarily, I'm lucky to have a neighbor let me borrow their bikes for long distance riding and off road biking. There are so many biking trails in Florida but the one I find most satisfying is the A1A called Flagler Trail. Starting from Flagler Pier, it has wonderful spurs and curves into woods at various points. Just a few miles in lies the Compra Mala trail, a 5.5 mile off road trail which contains both easy and technical trails that have secret pathways to state parks and beaches. Covered in palm trees, oaks, and Spanish moss, it's a great trail with so much to admire.
Every weekend my partner and I do a long bike ride where we often find many cycle tourists and road cyclists. Everyone is friendly and often filled with touring stories that will make you cringe when you hear alligator and snake at a camp site. Cringe aside, these stories fill me with inspiration to do more on two wheels which is why I have returned after so long. I was told by a roadie that I shouldn't stop blogging about these adventures, that my travel may inspire others and help those who want to tour Florida.
On a side note, I hope you'll keep along with my journey in Florida where you can follow on Instagram and Twitter.
