This ride starts at Gulf Coast H-D in New Port Richey. You will be passing thru San Antonio, the home of an annual Rattlesnake Festival and right next to it, St. Leo University, a very scenic college campus since 1889.

Passing thru Dade City(Tree City USA) you may want to parl the bike and do a little antique shopping. You will realize why it won the Tree City USA tag when entering city limits. huge grandfather oak trees lining the street with 100 year old homes.

In Center Hill you will turn left off of SR 48 on Palm Ave. CR 571, it is actually old SR 48, you might want to stop and take a picture about half way across, as the road becomes entirely canopied.

Gator Joe's in the town of Wiersdale, where every year they have a re-enactment of the Ma Barker and her boys famous shoot out.

Sit out on the deck over Lake Wier for lunch, great view. After a lunch break, don't head back without making the rest of the loop around the west and south part of the lake as shown.
