Part 2 of Melbourne to Kennansvile ride. Tavel west and north on Canoe Creek Road, into old St Cloud across US 192 (13th St ) to lakefront. Cruise lakefront and meander on down into old downtown which was a cattle town back in the day, small shops, bars, cafes etc. Old School Cool. Caution traveling any farther west on US 192 (13th St) is downright dangerous for the severely bad city and tourist traffic!!! Traveling east on US 192 back to Melbourne gets very light in about 3 miles at Narcoossee Rd. Intersection, then east about 40+ miles to Melbourne..
Start on 192 in Melbourne, west through open country, light travel 4 lane highway, past St Johns River bridge at Fish Camp with rest-pub, to Holipaw Rd (441) at gas station blinking light (only one!). Turn left travel 10 miles to 'Forever Florida' a wild lands conservation park with tours, zip lines, horseback rides, restaurant. Have lunch or... continue south to Kenansville gas station at canoe creek rd. (Should be a blinking light) then turn right and see old FL town with 1880s hotel and stores. There are lake landings off of landings road at marked end of route. Continue on north on Canoe Creek Rd to visit old St Cloud (go to old downtown area for cafes and bars) then return east on 192 to Melbourne. Or return way you came. US 192 just east of town connects to old Melbourne highway which is another BBR route also.

Mixture of highway speeds and rural back roads. Some twisties and 90 degree turns. In some areas, very narrow 2 lane or even lane-and-a-half. Nice hour and a half ride.
A good day of riding.

As close to mountain riding as it gets in Central FL.
From the starting point, you will be in the city limits of Sanford/Longwood area. It will be a great ride if done during the weekends early morning. As you travel along the info Wekiva Springs area, the traffic minimize and the foliage is beautiful. As you reach Rock Springs Road you will be amazed by the lakes and and farm land on these back roads. a great scenic adventure for all to enjoy especially as a group ride.
Beautiful ride that incorporates the best of Florida, with the ride starting in the a national forest, and then a nice scenic ride up the coast with a great stop off in St. Augustine, and finishing in Fernandina beach.
