Biking Florida

Sources for Maps and More Information
Gorp.com

Florida Atlas and Gazetteer is the handiest reference around. It features large scale full-color maps detailing the state and showing highways, back roads, and natural features; it also lists beaches, parks, campgrounds, bicycle routes, and more.

You won't find any better deal than the Florida county maps. Last we heard, maps were 30 cents a piece. But call them at (850) 414-4050 for current prices and ordering information. If their supply of printed maps is out, they may send you a photocopy. But at these prices, who's complaining?

The Suwannee Bicycle Association offers map packets of various statewide routes & touring information, including Department of Transportation (DOT) maps, Mt. Dora maps, southeast Florida rides. For a list, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

Lys Burden
P.O. Box 247
White Springs, FL 32096

If you're interested in the Suwannee River, see Cycling the Suwannee: Gar Pond & Big Shoals on GORP.You might want to track down The Florida Bicycle Book, published by Pineapple Press in Sarasota, Florida.

Many thanks to the Florida Department of Transportation for information used in this piece.
