My Sister has been bugging me to move down and help with the family business so my father can retire.
when I am down there it's just so flat everywhere I can't imagine anywhere to ride mtb.
If I moved there it would be around the Port Charolette area, let me know how far I would have to travel to ride anything other than road.

I'm not going to google everything for you because 1.) I'm lazy 2.) I'm using a phone. But there are some great trails at alafia and boyette. It's not going to be like riding in the mtn's, but. A lot of fun can be had. ;)

Are all riding areas yes, but alafia and boyette are the two that are the furthest south. There is a website with a TON of locations in fl and a few across the border that I'l dig up if your interested in traveling around florida. Everything for miles and miles of trails to just a few miles of singlestrack. Web site also gives reviews on the locations, although they are dated reviews. Let me dig it up.

Edot: ummm...so I looked it up andddd let's just say it's not about riding bikes anymore, it's about riding...other things. Wow

You got it. Check out swamps site, this one, or omba.org (for santo's) next time you come this way and ride with a group so you can hit all the good trails your first time out ;)

ditto what everyone else said...

there are actually some really fun trails down here. Markham and Oleta down around Miami are great, Santos is my favorite, Alafia and Boyette are a blast. theres also some trails in the northport area that i hear are pretty fun.

i moved here from NY and it took some getting used to but its not the end of the world

There's been many a rider that has come down from the "real mountains" in NC and north GA and been impressed with what they've found in "flat Florida". What we lack in elevation we make up for in intensity. Santos, Alafia, and Boyette are among the best left, RIP to the TOE and Reddick, San Felesco is another real good trail network. I've heard good things about Markham and the trails down south, but haven't been there myself.

Moved here from Ohio and the trails lack the hills but I will tell you they are more technical due to roots and trail makers have been really creative on making the trails. IE. Oleta. Markham is more muddy but has higher coaster style riding. Oleta is more technical, markham is more muddy and more difficult. I have to hand it the club mudd people.
