Route of the week: Tour of Florida

This epic tour of Florida must be one of the longest in our routes section - unless you know better?

There are over 27,000 routes in our Routes section and every week we'll be highlighting one that catches our eye - whether it's a short leisurely off road jaunt for the family or a ten day on-road trek, we want to see your routes. If you see a particularly noteworthy site, please let us know.

This week our attention has been drawn to a mammoth loop in Florida, created by "teacherbill". At 1845 miles it takes in Jacksonville, Palm Bay, Fort Lauderdale, Naples, Tampa and Pensacola.

As to be expected from a ride in Florida, it hasn't got much climbing [a total of 1709ft] but it's a fair slog. If you're planning on doing this route we'd recommend some hefty hydration packs - with an average temperature of 70 degrees and humidity that would challenge even the most ardent sunseeker, it's likely to be a warm ride. Oh, and watch out for the hurricane season (June - November).

If you want to upload one of your own routes, nip over to bikely.com now. It's easy. Either draw your route directly onto the map or upload a .gpx file from your GPS device. We'll also look out for routes with interesting notes attached to them so get out there, get riding and show us your routes!
