One of terrific bicycle ride gems of Florida is the "Ormond Loop" -- a beautiful 25-mile ride north of the city of Ormond Beach on Fla's East Coast.
I wrote a Travel story for the Bergen Record about this amazing Intracoastal bike ride several years ago and had the chance to renew the ride very recently.
Tree canopy and old-time Florida vegetation can be found along the Intracoastal bike route. Easy to get there: I-4 to I-95 north to State Road 40 exit at Ormond Beach. Park near Beach Road on the mainland's Intracoastal side and follow the scenic road signs around the loop.
