Exploring the Spring to Spring Corridor
« on: August 08, 2011, 11:35:50 AM »
I was going to ride the ONF yesterday for an epic HTFU ride, but partying late saturday night interfered with my morning plans.

For awhile I had been spying an off road route linking De Leon Springs to the farthest known point of the Naked INdian route and yesterday, with only my phone in my hand since I forgot the gps at home, I took at stab at it with my Girlfriends son.

THe trip was successful.

50 miles, 25 off road.

miles of beautiful preserve land.

Miles of pristine rail road bed.

Miles of flooded double track.  Felt like we were steam boating through ponds.

Grass taller then us seated on the bikes.

Even found an old abandoned rail road track that we followed for a mile or so through an over grown tree tunnel.

At one point even came upon a tall barbed wire fence had to use my leatherman tool to unwind it enough to climb under.

Pretty epic day and we had a blast to boot!.
