The NO Plan Florida Mixed-Surface Ride: No Route, Getting Lost, Fun AF!

gravel cycling with no map and no plan

In this video, JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew heads to a veritable middle of nowhere spot somewhere in North Florida, for a day of random rambling about the countryside. Nowadays, a lot of riders focus on the perfect ride experience, riding a perfectly vetted route, etc. This is a perfectly fine way to ride, especially if you’re on a time crunch, but for true exploration, JOM returned to how he used to ride. No mapping / computer guidance, ride all day, and hope for the best!

The NO Plan Florida Mixed-Surface Ride Video

The plan was to ride:

  • Sans Route
  • Sans Plan
  • Explore, likely get lost
  • Explore, and hopefully, get found again
  • Have a ton of fun poking about the place on some familiar, and not so familiar roads

In all, 80+ miles of wandering about, with a few detours, back tracks, and more.
