*** This route was set up and ridden solo. Left Saturday morning and returned Sunday late afternoon. It was just an overnight trip. I placed a weekend in the time column, because I did the ride that way. however,for those who ride in groups, don't like to log heavy miles in a day, or just want a bit more comfort as well as the casual ride, I recommend 3 days. This was done Sept. 2011. All of my routes are mapped out on atlas' as I do not use GPS. Of course you can modify to taste. thank you for looking and feel free to provide any feedback so I can make my route additions more beneficial.

** I stayed at the Dothan National Golf Resort. It was not a treat by any means. I included Ross Clark circle on the journey for the eateries as well as motels and hotels**

From the gas station on Barclay and Elgin (Spring Hill):
Elgin to Landover (R)
Landover to Mariner (R)
Mariner to SR50/Cortez blvd. (L)
SR50/Cortez Blvd to US10/Commercial way ( R lane merges onto US 19 )
Take US 19/commercial blvd. all the way to the town of PERRY. ( approx 145 miles)
** there will be long stretches of US19 that are open roads and nothing around**
US19 in Perry, to US98 /coastal Hwy. ( you may wish to fuel in perry, there are stretches of 98 without pumps)
US98 to FL 267 N (forks gently to right) make right onto FL 267 N/Bloxham cutoff road
FL267 N/Bloxham cutoff road to SR20 W./ Jackson Bluff Hwy.(gas approx 25 miles)
**along SR20 is a nice local eatery called APALACHEE RESTAURANT on right hand side- a must stop in for real local flavor and hospitality**SR20 W to SR71 N. - you will cross a small bridge, after that slow down because SR71 sneaks right up on you.
SR71 N to FL road 2 W (town of Malone) left onto FL2 W.
FL2 W thru town of Campbellon (approx 12 miles) to US231 ( water tower and US post office as landmarks) At US231, R turn. Welcome to Alabama.
US231 N to Ross Clark circle. ( this cuts out busy traffic in downtown by residents)
*** at this point refer to your hotel location***
The return trip was slightly varied based on wanting new roads and making up some time. This was only a quick overnight stay and return...

US231 S./SR75 past FL2 (Campbellon) to SR73 (L) - will fork to L
SR73/CR164 to where it splits and mergers with SR90 and SR10 bear (L)
SR73/10/US90 aka Lafayette St. when you get into town of Marietta, the road is just SR10/US90. stay on that until it merges into with SR71 S.
SR71/10/US90 until forks to SR71 S. (forks to R)
SR71 to I-10 E to exit 181 (signs for town of Quincy) look for SR267 S./Pat Thomas pkwy.)
( you are looking for SR267 S. --NOT QUINCY)
SR267 S to the end. you will come to a 'T'. this is SR20 (L) going SR20 E
SR20 E back to FL267 S/Bloxham cutoff road. (R)
(It is very easy to miss this turn ! if you are SR20 and the signs read BLOUNTSTOWN HWY, you past it !! turn back to get FL267)**** depending on time of year, watch out for deer on FL 267 and (*. when I road this route, the deer were out ***
FL267 all way to US98 (L)
US98 to US19/27 ( PERRY ) (R)
US19 back to SR50/Cortez (L)
Cortez to Barclay (R)
Barclay to Elgin.... to gas station, starting point
For those with more time, you can take more scenic routes such as:
when getting to SR71 heading to Dothan, you can take SR69 which will merge to SR71 and continue. OR...avoid I-10 on the return and do your thing.

OVERALL: smooth rides, long stretches of riding without traffic or lights. gas stations are reasonable in most spots, folks were friendly in Alabama. And that's coming from a NYC guy!! Bring rain gear if weather calls for it, there are stretches where there is NO PLACE to hide !! :)
Hope you try my routes out and feel free to let me know what ya think !!
