Starting out at the intersection of US 41 & Hale road with breakfast at Frank's Cafe. Good food, cheap prices. Ehren Cut-off is a nice little sweeping curved road. SR 52 is 3 miles of straight & flat. Bellamy Bros. Blvd. is nice country road with sweeping curves. When you turn on Bayhead Road, it has no striping and it looks like you are headed down some ranchers driveway! Some great views along Balnton & Frazee Hill Roads. For a 4 lane highway US 301 is a nice rolling hill ride up to Trilby Road. Trilby, a forgotten little community with a nice little road.
When you get on SR 50, put your feet up on the pegs for 23 miles. Remember to watch your speed thru the town of Macotte & Groveland, pretty tough locals there.
CR 565A and Lake Minneola Shores will provide a nice portion of Lake Minneola scenery to US 27. Just a shot up to CR 561 and the start of some of the best rolling hills and views you will get in this area, until you reach Astatula. Then following CR 48, 448A and CR 448 around lake Jem to Dora drive, then follow Dora to the town of Mount Dora.
On the weekends you will find you are not the only biker in town, as you may encounter dozens, walking around the antique stores or the many place to eat and drink.

Great route. We started in Wesley Chapel and took 54 to Ft King into Dade city and caught 301 and followed the rest of the route. Great views around the lake.
