Starting the Southern Tier in Daytona Beach
« on: March 05, 2011, 07:07:12 am »
Daytona Beach makes more sense as a starting point for me. Beginning March 2012 heading west. I used Google Maps "bike" routing to get me to Woodville FL and pick up the ST westbound. Looks like it leverages at least a couple of long bike trails which is nice.. not sure about the roads as I would be cutting through some pretty sparse areas of Florida. Here is a link to what Google recommended.. Let me also add that it appears to shave off 30 miles from the ACA route. If you are from the area and don't mind - I'd love some advice!

You might also want to take a look at the Florida county maps and other resources on their DOT Bicycle and Pedestrian pages:

Good luck and have a great trip!

i started cross country from cape canaveral last april after the shuttle launch. my plan was to track north to gainsville, and connect with the ST there.  while stopping over in disneyworld, my brother in law and i mapped out an alternate route: i continued west closer to the gulf coast to and hugged the coast till i reached pensacaola, and conncted thr ST there. but only as far as gulf shores, AL, where i connected with the underground railroad north.   really enjoyed the gulf coast route; quiet, nice roads close to the coast.  consider that as an option to connect to the ST....
