THE JEWEL OF FLORIDA

JUST 25 MILES NORTH OF TALLAHASSEE'S I-10 EXIT TO THE CAPITAL, SITS ONE OF FLORIDA'S FRIENDLIEST CITIES. ESTABLISHED IN 1906, HAVANA ............

HAVANA HAS EMBRACED CYCLING AS IT IS IN THE TOWN'S MASTER PLAN. A TRAIL TO TALLAHASSEE IS ON IT'S WISH LIST. THE HAVANA MAIN STREET PROGRAM SPONSORS THE HAVANA HILLS RIDE WITH IT'S 3,300 FEET OF ELEVATION GAIN. THERE ARE TWO FACES TO HAVANA RIDING, THE HILLS AND THE FLATS.

 

THE HILLS ARE THE WATERSHED TO LITTLE RIVER. THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THE LOCAL'S TRAINING ROADS FOR SIX GAP AND MOUNT MITCHELL.  THE MASTER'S NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP WAS HELD THERE TWICE.  THE HILLS WERE STEEP ENOUGH TO MAKE A SELECTION, AND LONG ENOUGH TO MAKE IT STICK.

THE FLATS ARE MODERATE TO EASY ROLLERS ON LIGHTLY TRAVELED ROADS. THEY CONNECT HAVANA TO THE SOUTH GEORGIA TOWNS OF CALVERY, CAIRO, WHIGHAM, CLIMAX, BAINBRIDGE, AND ATTAPULGUS. THERE IS A CONVENIENCE STORE LOCATED EVERY 20 MILES.

THE HAVANA SPRINGS RESORT IS 3.7 MILES WEST OF HAVANA, WITH A SIX FOOT BIKE LANE AND QUINCY IS 12 MILES FROM HAVANA ON THE SAME ROAD. IT HAS BED AND BREAKFAST ACCOMMODATIONS LOCATED IN THE HISTORIC DISTRICT.

THE BEST ROAD RIDING EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, DURING THE WINTER, IS THIS JEWEL OF FLORIDA CYCLING. IT IS A "LATITUDE WITH AN ATTITUDE". CHECK THE LONG RANGE WEATHER FORECAST AND MAKE AN EXECUTIVE DECISION TO ROAD TRIP WITH A FRIEND. FALL AND SPRING ARE BEAUTIFUL AND A COLD WINTER DAY WITH ROBIN EGG BLUE SKIES IS BREATH TAKING.
