The 2024 AMA National Cross-Florida Adventure Ride October 26/27, 2024

250 Rider Limit


Overview


What does "Cross-Florida" mean?

To some it's going from Coast-to-Coast. To others it's exploring the back roads and countryside across the Sunshine State. Combine both of those by joining in on the annual DDS Cross-Florida Adventure that will surely expose you to the Florida you never knew existed!


We don't focus on Point A or Point B.

We don't focus on how difficult it is,

or how fast you are.


What we do focus on is what's in the middle.

What you see, what you learn, what you experience.


Our goal is to have you know more about Florida than you did when you started the ride.


And having an adventure on your motorcycle along the way!


DDS Adventure Rides are back road tours, designed to be 50/50 and suitable for all bikes and all abilities. We even include a full paved route so your friends can join you!


DDS has been bringing dual sport and adventure riders together since 1996, and in all those years we've seen a lot of places and been to a couple of more!


We've found the best local sites, points of interest, out-of-the-way-places and explored the best possible ways to get there combining only the best paved connectors.


Though sometimes, because of the incredible growth recently, there are some miles on pavement that we can't help, because that's the only way to get from one spot to another.


In 2007, with the advent of the increased popularity of the Big Adventure Bikes and the greater number of riders who have yet to develop enduro quality skill-sets, DDS launched into the C-FL, specifically geared towards big bikes, those developing their skills, two-up riders, and just plain anyone who wanted to go "back roads touring" on little used paved and dirtroads in Florida.


Since then we have added the DragonSlayer in 2008, Canyonlands in 2009, and once again DDS recentlty completed The Florida Traverse, a series of loops, that when connected, will allow you to travel from inside Georgia all the way into the Everglades. Overall, DDS has 16 different Cross-Florida routes with varying themes criss-crossing the State.


What To Expect


Leaving from the East Coast, you will travel through small towns with historical significance.


You'll see the Atlantic in the morning and watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico.


You will learn about Florida history along the way, and by utilizing your POIs, you'll be able to keep track of where and what you are seeing and it's importance in Florida history.


You will have ocean views and rivers, ride through Florida's agricultural breadbasket, cattle ranches, swamps and Florida history.


You'll see old buildings, old trains, old restaurants, forts, movie sites, and Old Florida at its finest.


If you like to ride the back roads and enjoy local history this is for you!


At the end of the day there's plenty of time for sharing of stories.


There are plenty of hotel options for the end of the day, some of you may have to travel a little farther for lodging, but we'll provide you with a list of lodging options when you register so you can make reservations.

(The sooner you register, the better your lodging choices!)


Lodging is on your own.


If you're a camping person, you'll have to do some research into camping areas.


Each C-FL is designed for big bikes like GS1250, Tiger 800, Super Tenere, Africa Twins, 890R, T7s, 690Rs to smaller bikes like XT250, DRZ400, KLR650, those that like to ride 2-Up and those that like to go back roads touring!


The C-FL is a self-guided tour, not a follow-the-leader type ride. Navigation and exploration is part of the fun. You will be provided maps and GPS tracks


GPS ONLY. No Route Sheets. GPS Tracks Will Be Provided One Week From Event Date


Two Options Available, So There's One For You!


1. Adventure Option:

Is a combination of scenic dirt roads and paved roads through the countryside. (No Trails)


2. Street Option:

This option gives you the same great backroads tour but using an all-paved road route .

(Best Choice If You Have A Passenger Unless You Are Comfortable Riding Sandy Dirt Roads)


Past C-FLs have included:

Cracker Edition: Cracker Florida!

Everglades Edition: We took you deep into the Glades!

Ghost Town Edition: Explore the Florida that disappeared!


You may not see this route again for years to come!

Steinhatchee, Jena or in Perry.


DDS West Coast HQ is at Fiddlers Inn in Steinhatchee. 15% Discount if you tell them you're with DixieDualSport.


There will be a Halloween party at the restaurant that night so they are unable to accommodate a banquet so this year, but we are working on a local banquet facility. Otherwise this would be a good place to meet up, share stories, tell lies and just have fun.


Dinner is on your own at Fiddler's or any of the eateries in Steinhatchee, Jena, or Perry if that is where you are staying.


Sunday you can ride to Perry and visit the Florida Cracker Homestead (a Swampy favorite), then swing by Steinhatchee Falls before you enjoy the route backwards or enjoy a scenic paved ride back to Daytona, or you can just head back to where you need to go.
