Oct 3, 2008 left Land O' Lakes with 21 bikes behind me, NO ONE knew what the destination was, or did they care! This was our annual 'Mystery Trip', I set it up and they faithfully give me their money to pay for hotels and follow! Now these trips ARE definately about THE JOURNEY! Although I do try and make the destination fun.We headed out thru Polk County and the edge of The Green swamp area. The area between Haines City and Frostproof is a continuous rolling hills and beautiful lake and vista views, as you travel Scenic State Road 17.
Beautful scenic ride around Lake Reedy and then back to Scenic SE 17 down into historic Sebring, this was our lunch stop.
After Sebring the ride gets pretty flat, as you are now getting into south florida, but you are also leaving most of the traffic and congestion behind. Traveling mostly thru farm country, LaBelle & Immokalee, and a couple of forgotten towns and communities.
SR 29 in the area of I-75(Alligater Alley) you pass thru the Florida Panther Habitat, please slow your speed in this area as they are almost extinct.
We stayed in Everglades City at The Captains Table , with a lounge and restaurant next door, rooms were clean and reasonable and food and drinks were good as well.
The ride home took us back theu Immokalee then turning west on SR 82 thru the Lehigh acres area up to Alva, and a trip down scenic River Road. From there north to Mullberry area was more of the 'farm area' and little to no traffic or towns, great for putting your feet up on the pegs and just riddin'!
Some of the group was already talking about the next one by the time we stooped for lunch on the trip home!
