Biking My Way South, Part 2

Sandwiched around a volunteer project in SC and then back-to-back Road Scholar/Elderhostel programs in SC and FL, I've managed to get over 200 miles on various trails, including 17 miles in Ft. Clinch State Park in GA...




...15 miles on Cumberland Island National Seashore's beach and forest...




...22 miles on Jekyll Island (GA) where this guy was alongside the trail...






...43 miles on 3 rides on St. Simons Island (GA) where historical sightseeing was part of my biking, as demonstrated by the lighthouse  below...





Next I drove into Florida and biked 15 miles of intermediate difficulty mountain bike trail in Guana River State Park...



...and 15 miles on the Jacksonville-Baldwin State Trail...



...then on to Florida's Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail for 21 more miles on its newest section...





...and today 26 miles on the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail...



Tomorrow I head to Ocala National Forest for 2 days on their superb mountain bike trail system (over 50 miles), then to Cedar Key for 2 more days of biking, followed by 2 days in the Apalachicola National Forest's mountain bike trails-- and then go meet my Sierra Club group for a week of kayaking out of theOke

Chuck very nice photos and blog. I'm exclusively a paved trail rider, getting lots of photos and video for my website 'Trail View Mount'. Biking paved trails is as good as it gets. Stay safe.
