So you've recently bought a bicycle. You've been riding your neighborhood streets and venturing about town, getting used to the feel of the bike, learning the rules of the road and growing more confident in your biking skills. Perhaps you've ventured on a few longer rides, building up your endurance as you've racked up some miles, and even biked the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail. Now you are ready to try something more ambitious: a longer spin through the countryside.
