Ride to Ocala National Forest

  • April 28, 2012 · 9:00 AM

Dan, our co-organizer, used to live in Ocala. For those of us in Leesburg, he'll take us on a tour of the Ocala National Forest. Details to be posted by Dan.

 

Ok folks, here is what I am thinking.... Lets get on the road around 9:00 at the hotel and take a nice ride through the forest. Then we can head into Ocala and have lunch at Terry's.  They have the best burgers!!!  After lunch, we can head west over to the Rainbow Springs State park and check out a natural spring.  From there we can head back to the hotel.  The whole ride is just over 150 miles and google maps says it will take 4 hours.  I would guess with lunch and breaks it will take around 6.5 hours.  If we think that is too much I can cut the ride back...  Let me know what you think...

Here is the map for what I am suggesting.

 I shortened the ride so it would not take so long...  It is now about 120 miles round trip so that should take around 5 hours to finish....

    Sounds like a wonderful ride but unfortunately I will probably either be packing up for trip home or on my way sigh. Stay safe all.

    Route looks great. I think 150 miles is about good. No need to shortened the route, in my opinion.
