Meet the Author

Rick Sapp grew up biking the steepest hill in Florida and decorating his J.C. Higgins one-speed with crêpe paper streamers for elementary school bike races. Since then he has covered the state, from Pensacola to Key West, and broadened his enthusiasm for all things outdoors. He has published a dozen books, including Camping Florida (forthcoming, FalconGuides) and many magazine articles.

Read an Excerpt

“In this book you will find rides of every sort. Rambles that are merely warm-ups for experienced cyclists and true classics that will challenge any rider’s endurance—and will. Several pedals are scenic from the moment you mount up to the moment you return the bike to the rack—while a couple are designed to show a side of Florida that may be a bit unsettling. Several rides travel through country so lonely that farmers and ranchers will look up from their work as you wheel past, children dizzy on tire swings will stare, and families shelling butter beans in the porch swing will smile and wave. A few rides are so uptown that your eyes may blur at the endless series of stops and turns.”
