Coastal route from Tampa to Key West
Start on 192 in Melbourne, west through open country, light travel 4 lane highway, past St Johns River bridge at Fish Camp with rest-pub, to Holipaw Rd (441) at gas station blinking light (only one!). Turn left travel 10 miles to 'Forever Florida' a wild lands conservation park with tours, zip lines, horseback rides, restaurant. Have lunch or... continue south to Kenansville gas station at canoe creek rd. (Should be a blinking light) then turn right and see old FL town with 1880s hotel and stores. There are lake landings off of landings road at marked end of route. Continue on north on Canoe Creek Rd to visit old St Cloud (go to old downtown area for cafes and bars) then return east on 192 to Melbourne. Or return way you came. US 192 just east of town connects to old Melbourne highway which is another BBR route also.
Scenic route through Sweetwater and Arcadia. Older textured asphalt with animals and random farm dirt in roads at times. Render due caution.
A nice leisurely (speed limit 35) ride along the beaches of Jupiter Island. The some tree lined streets with curves in Port Salerno. On thru Stuart and across the bridge and Intracoastal waterway to have more ocean side driving. Stop for a bite at the famous "Archie's" or go on down to the inlet for some beach side dining.
Travel around Okeechobee via Martin Highway
Seminole Pratt-Whitney to Northlake to SE Martin Highway tunnel of trees to Okeechobee, around the lake back to Southern Blvd return.
Rural scenery, farms and lakes
Miami to Venus
good scenery to the beach
If you want your Florida stone crabs right off the dock as fresh as you can find them, then you need to go to a funky small town where the highway ends and the wilderness begins — Everglades City.
Everglades City is a small fishing town about 35 miles south of Naples and 80 miles east of Miami. Dozens of stone-crab fishermen are based on its Barron River, and so are several informal, unpretentious seafood restaurants.
Everglades City is where Joe’s Stone Crabs on Miami Beach gets its stone crabs. Joe’s doesn’t take reservations and is famous for its long wait. True, you might spot a visiting celebity at Joe’s. At the Everglades City restaurants, on the other hand, you might spot a visiting manatee in the river your table overlooks.
Miami, old cutler bay
Vegetation is held back on long straight sections so have sunscreen - not many places to get cover if caught up in rain...
A ride you can do over and over, if you like coastal rides nothing beats this long coastal stretch. You will be riding next to or above water for miles on end. Stop by the Key West and have lunch and take your picture next to the momument that says you are now at the furthest point south in the United States and only 89 miles from Cuba. Great enjoyable ride with green and blue water
Some easy banked and unbanked 90 degrees turns. Good but watch for rubble on the road surface
Combinations of different corner types from sweeping to very tight. Good fun.
Roads with many curves are difficult to find around here, so heres one for you.
A couple of nice corners here.
Nice little road with some good corners and nice places to stop. Watch out near Alva for police.
South Florida is very flat. The roads are generally straight. However, the older roads are more curvy and covered with much more vegetation. You start on Bayshore Drive near the Rickenbacker Causeway and continue until you read the intersection of Grand Ave. and Main Highway (not a highway anymore, just an old road) in the heart of old Coconut Grove. Coconut Grove is the oldest settlement in South Florida. Main Highway will take you through thick tropical canopies. The homes here are old and wealthy. You'll come to a circle near a canal. Here you want to take the second turn-off and begin the eternal Old Cutler Road. Notice the ancient strangler fig trees that cover the road. You'll pass Tropical Gardens and private residences. As you continue down Old Cutler Road, the scenery will change as you get further away from the Atlantic Ridge, an expression used for the slightly elevated (20 feet at the highest) coastal hardwood land, and enter the flatter, watershed of the Everglade areas. Old Cutler will lead to US 1. Continue on US 1 to the big intersection of US 1, the Florida Turnpike Terminus, and Palm Dr. Go west on Palm Dr. and follow the signs to Everglades National Park. This road passes through Florida City's agricultural area. You will have to pay to enter the park. Park is best in the winter and during the day. To best enjoy the park, see the sunset at Flamingo Bay, camp there for the night, see the sunrise, and leave in the morning. This is certainly not the fastest or the only way to ride South Florida. It is a good ride for a cruiser/street bike. This route passes through various environments and municipal zones. I hope you enjoy.
