This trip offers lots of open road riding with little stopping areas. The ride from Brooksville to Leesburg is has some points of interest like the Dade Battlefield State Park. There is a $2 admission fee to the park, well worth it if youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re a history buff. There is a great place to get fresh squeezed orange juice just north of Leesburg at the orange barn. CR 42 is a nice rode. About 9 of the 18 mile is new pavement the other half is a courser asphalt but with some nice turns. The Ocala National Forest has some beautiful scenery to offer with some great stops like Salt Springs. CR 316 takes you through thoroughbred farm area. There are some restaurants in Dunnellon downtown area. While youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re there check out Injun Joes Cutlery. Over all this is a nice trip through some typical Central Florida land. Rather flat with some turns.
