Title: Florida coast to coast dedicated bike path. C2C.
Post by: Westinghouse on November 04, 2021, 06:16:39 am
Also known as the c2c Florida bike path, its eastern terminus is in Titusville, FL about 98 miles south of the eastern end of ACA's southern tier bicycle route. It is mostly complete with 191 miles of exclusive pathways. There are about 50 miles more to be constructed.The gap roads are excellent for cycling. It is about 245 miles in all from Titusville on the Atlantic ocean to Saint Petersburg on the gulf of Mexico.
Another thought. Highway 41 from St. Pete southward will take you to Tamiami Trail near Naples, and west across the everglades to Miami, FL. From here you can go south to Key West.

Yep, looks like a nice shoulder season and even wintertime ride.

They do have a map online. Just this moment I saw a YouTube video that said the sea to sea coast to coast bicycle path in Florida has been done. Meaning finished and complete. I did not open the video.

Hey, Walther!  You can go to ridewithgps.com and search on Florida coast to coast* or Florida C2C or some such search term.  Dozens of folks have mapped the route, and you can download GPS data in several formats from their files.  Hmm.  You might need to establish a (free) account to do this.




*Whoa, sorry, I know that offends some folks.

TCS, that is exactly what I am looking for. I find it way to easy to miss a turn or sign and a GPS track makes it simple enough to simply look and correct my course.
Thanks!
