Written Directions

In Englewood, Florida. Take 776/S. McCall Rd. to Beach Rd.(McDonalds is on the corner there) follow Beach Rd. until it becomes Manasota Key Road and follow that until it ends. If you like you can just reverse the direction and come back out by McDonalds and get a bite to eat or just hit 776 and go home.

Scenery

The road is along the beach in the beginning and throughout it you can see parts of the beach at times. The main section travels through a residential area that has big trees that cover the road which makes for a relaxing ride. You will find many riders out there just having a nice cruise.

Drive Enjoyment

I haven't come across any potholes but seeing as the road is covered in trees you will find that there are roots under the road so it will be a little bumpy in areas. As you near the end just be careful with the SAND, don't go hot-doging through without riding it at least once and figuring out the areas that could land you on your side. the end section puts you right up against the beach but there tends to be sand on the road in that area, slow it down and you'll be fine.

Tourism Opportunities

There are several beach oriented restaurants and hotels near the start of the road as it's the public beach area. Towards the end there are mostly just houses tucked along the sides of the road.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

The speed limit never really goes over 45mph and most of it is a little slower but the road is also not monitored much normally so just be safe riding. The road has some nice twists as you go so it can be quite the calm and relaxing ride.
