Historic North Florida Bike Tour
Bicycling Florida's Hidden Wonders
Cycling Florida provides the opportunity to discover more than just Disney and Miami. Learn about Florida's rich history as you cycle the beautiful landscape, acquaint yourself with unique flora and fauna, and savour slow-smoked BBQ, fresh seafood, and cool craft beers!
The Historic North Florida Cycling Tour starts off within the Steinhatchee fishing village, where you will bike one of Florida's famous limestone trails. The route continues over an old trestle bridge, through untamed forests, past expansive farmlands, and into quaint small towns. You will pedal the beautiful Nature Coast Trail to historic Micanopy, where you can wander amongst the ancient oaks that drip with Spanish moss and browse the antique shops and art galleries. Then, you will cycle even farther back in history as you cross the St John, one of the few rivers in the world that flows south to north, and reach St Augustine, America's oldest continually inhabited city. Here, you are free to explore the historic district, visit some of the many museums, stroll the impressive ramparts of the 350-year-old Castillo de San Marcos, and relax on the water.
Due to damage in Steinhatchee from Hurricane Idalia, Pedalers' fall dates for the North Florida tour will start inland in Branford along the Suwannee River. Contact us for more details.
