I took the bike out for the first time the other day. A road bike is going to take some getting used to. My brother was showing me how to change the tube, take off the tires and all that.

This spring I intend to trek from Milton Fl to Leesburg Fl, and return. Averaging 45-60 miles a day, camping and occasional motel. I need help from anyone with local knowledge. Outbound route would be Milton> Perry> Dunnellon> Leesburg. Return would go through Ocala National Forest and join the ACA Southern Tier Route near Citra. Outbound to Perry, I would connect to either Hwy 20 or Hwy 98 near FtWalton. Perry to Dunnellon would be via Steinhatchee and Manatee Springs State Park.I live in Leesburg. Why would you ever bike here? lol
So far, I think that only low to moderate traffic is probable; however Dunnellon to Leesburg is likely problematic. (My actual destination is east of Leesburg, south of Lisbon.) Should I proceed from Dunnellon to Inverness, go east on Hwy 44 thru Leesburg(city) to Destination. Or alternatively, Dunnellon> Hwy 484> Hwy 42> Hwy 452> Lisbon> Destination?
Return Lisbon> Hwy 452> east on Hwy 42 to Altoona> Hwy 19, Ocala National Forest> Citra> ACAST to Milton. I would appreciate any advice/thoughts, particurarly regarding interesting stops, camp sites, traffic, etc.
