Florida's Paved Bike Trails offers the most comprehensive guide available to more than 40 paved bicycle trails stretching from Pensacola Beach to the Florida Keys, with information on projects in progress or in the planning stages. Location maps and a geographical and historical description of each trail are included, as well as access listings of trailside facilities and parking and information on basic bicycle safety and bicycle shops. And, unlike other bicycling books, this guide also provides information about parks, beaches, lakes, recreational areas, wildlife refuges, historic sites, and museums along the trails or in close proximity to them. Offering safe and controlled routes to ride, this book will serve beginning bicyclists, families with children, and experienced road cyclists looking for trails on which they can maintain a steady pace unencumbered by traffic and intersections. It will also be useful for rollerbladers, skateboarders, joggers, and walkers, and it includes information about equestrian trails that exist alongside bike trails. As the only single source of information on all the bike trails in Florida and an eco-tour guide to these routes, Florida's Paved Bike Trails is a must for everyone who enjoys the parallel pleasures of cycling and sightseeing.
