    Any way to get some route info? I live not far from Babson park, and have ridden some of the grove roads in that area. I’d love to check out some of the ground you covered.

      Sorry, as I said in the video, I trespassed, therefore I cannot share the route.

        Got it, even a couple road names to get oriented on the section between Frostproof and lake wales would be helpful
