You will ride by plenty of lakes, through orange groves, you'll see cattle and get some nice views from several of the hills along the route.
This route has many elevation changes, and plenty of twists and turns ... this ride is suited to the sportbike enthusiast.Road quality varies from highway to county road to rural road. Use caution during the rainy season due to some washout of sediment onto the pavement than may occur in rural areas.
Fill up the tank in Davenport. There are no gas stations along this route. If you want to eat or fill up you'll have to detour into one of the nearest towns.
This is a very enjoyable route while in Auburndale but not so much on a particular road in Polk City. I'm looking for past video footage of the intersection of Fussell rd and Stagecoach rd. I'm trying to prove that the city failed to maintain the shoulders in preventing dirt from accumulating on both side of the road. Anyone with info, pictures, or video that can help me, I'll be sure you'll be compensated ($200) for your assistance once they pay my damage claim. Please reply or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See uploaded pictures of the accident. I've been riding for over 10 years.Thank you in advance.

This is an enjoyable ride. It is off the main roads which is busy I4 and Hwy 27. The roadways are in good condition and well cared for. It is about 50 miles and ends near old 17 which you can continue riding south for a continued enjoyable ride south. It takes you through some tight turns as well as some sweeping curves with some straight stretches. I have taken this route several times and look forward to doing it again.

I did the norther portion of this run witch is very good. I especially like the Fussell road part. I kinda like that name. So do my brothers and cousins and aunts and uncles. OK I'm a little biased, but for a bike ride you won't be disappointed. As an added bonus just North of Fussell road is the P.T. Barnum Elephant retirement home. Look for the Palm trees lining the drive way on the western side of Old Grade Rd. The southern part of this run has a little too much traffic for my taste, granted it is small town traffic. Nothing like Tampa or Orlando but everybody has to go to work and go home so timing is a consideration. Thanks for adding this run. Ride safe.

Be extra careful at the beginning of Fussell RD. Both sides of the road was covered in a thick blanket of dirt hidden underneath shaded trees. Once you realize it, it's too late.
The city denied my claim because they said they were not aware of it. I had the whole incident on video. I need a way to find out if anyone has reported this same spot prior to my unfortunate accident on 02/11/16. Been riding since 1994. Speed: less than 30 mph.Very unfortunate but fortunately it was at the end of my route. I went the opposite way of suggested starting point. Loved the routes through the Orange fields. Be careful out there. Ride safe and God bless.
HIDDEN IN THE DARK. WATCH OUT FOR THIS BOO-BEE TRAP. THERE'S EVEN LOUNGE CHAIRS NEARBY OFF STAGECOACH RD LIKE THEY'RE GREMLINS WATCHING TO CATCH SOME ACTION.
