With increasing traffic in Florida, it’s not easy to find great and open roads for motorcycle riders.  If you’re really into the natural attractions and scenic views, you will want to keep reading this blog.  As experienced motorcycle riders ourselves, we have some solid insight.

Whether you’re into panoramic views, simple roads with no traffic, or backroads, we’ve compiled a list of the top destinations for riding in St. Petersburg and around the Tampa Bay Area.


The Green Swamp Encounter

If you’re into magnificent back country roads, this one is worth going to.  You’ll be able to get a great view of the wetlands, hardwoods, and nature.  You might think that these roads were specifically made for motorcycle riders.  

As you explore these roads, you’ll also be able to stop and savor the beauty of this land and its natural sights.  You can find a one-lane wooden bridge that is perfect to ride over while enjoying the sunny Florida weather.


Tail of the Gecko

This ideal destination for motorcycle lovers is known for its secret shortcuts and exquisite natural views.  Similar to Tail of the Dragon, the Tail of the Gecko, has many curves and twists.  This destination is great for those looking for hidden Florida gems, with many turns to get your adrenaline pumping.  There is barely any traffic on these roads, and it runs north for about three miles.


North Tampa Circuit

On this route, you will be able to get a view of the open country of northern Tampa.  Once on these roads, it will be difficult to still believe you are coasting through Florida.  The scenery here includes cattle, horses, and even orange groves.

Should you choose to ride around Spring, you’ll be able to see oranges blooming, and smell the sweet aroma of citrus.  Although Florida does not have much in the way of hills, taking this route will give you a great view of the countryside.


Sunshine Skyway Motorcycle Roads

This two-lane gem located in between Pinellas and Manatee County is an open secret.  This area has very twisty roads and will hold your excitement for quite a while.  Here, you’ll be able to cruise around Tampa Bay, and you will be able to get a view of the Gulf of Mexico, too.

Egmont Key also appears if you’re are coasting on the west side of the bridge.  This particular island is actually a Florida State Park, where you will be able to spot a functioning lighthouse.  If you have time, you should park your motorcycle, and take a boat or a ferry to access this island.

Whether you’re looking for an exhilarating trip or simply a traffic-free road, these top destinations are ideal.  To ensure your safety, make sure you are using protective gear such as a helmet.

It is vital to be attentive to the road always, even when there is less traffic, to prevent motorcycle accidents.  And remember, if you are ever involved in a motorcycle accident, contact Marsalisi Law right away to help you.  We are WHERE LAW GETS PERSONAL.  Contact us today!
