Heading from North Florida south possibly all the way to Keys, probably ride down the east coast but haven't decided actual routes or destinations yet, but plan to leave around feb 16th. If anybody else wants to join, company may be enjoyed and if anyone is posted up somewhere cool in the state and wants to kick it let me know.

I'd be down to hang if your going down the coast. I'm in Ormond beach /Holly Hill. I might even ride a ways south with you if work isn't to crazy by that time.

I'm not sure about the Jacksonville to St Augustine leg but from St Augustine to Ormond (on Hwy 1) they recently put in a sidewalk just about the whole way with benches and trash cans every half mile or so. It's weird because there's nothing out there for miles. Handy tho. I've trekked up there on my whip a few times.

us1/alt a1a will basically take you down the entire east coast of florida with varying degrees of civilization along the way. any particular reason for wanting to goto the keys?
far as making it to the keys no not really just figure it's a hell of a destination but not completely set on going the whole way. but yea A!A is the best routes for going south 25mph tail wind out there today. do kinda want to ride through the forest I know that damn hippie gathering might be going on really I just want to see the state even though I been almost everywhere in it I still usually travel north in order not to retrace my steps cause fl dead ends south but I do thinkit'd be cool to camp in the winter in the keys. but i'd be down for some springs but I figure I can hit those on the way back....and get this! there is a ferry from key west to Sarasota or ft myers or something like that so might just use that for a portion north then cut back up cross cross state toward jax again

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$65.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $65.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $65.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $65.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
