      So I need to get out of the house around Christmas time. I have a full week getaway and my departure will be from Nashville Tennessee. I am hoping to get your feedback on a good place for riding that time of year that has the best chance of being ‘not too cold’ … I am willing to travel anywhere south. I am an intermediate skill driver but will be riding by myself. So it might be best to not put myself on a treacherous trail or one so remote that I would turn to dust before being found ! Ha … Ideas please.

      Come to Florida. It’s pretty much shorts and flip-flops for 95% of the year and "too cold to ride" is almost unheard of. If you come to the Tampa area you are about an hour or less in any direction from some great MTB trail systems. In the immediate vicinity is Alafia River State Park (IMBA Epic) and Boyette Scrup Preserve. Both of these are excellent trail systems which won’t disappoint. About an hour (maybe like an hour and half) north is the Santos trail system (IMBA Epic) near Ocala, FL. Then there is Carter in Lakeland and several in the Orlando area.

      Check out our trail pages on these systems and if you use the search function for Alafia you should find a write up by Singletracks founder Jeff of his trip to the park last February.…/winter-break-s … -in-sunny- florida/
