Well, another year at the Leesburg Bike Fest came and went. Leesburg is my favorite bike event in Florida even though at times it can be brutally hot. However, the riding in/out of that area is great, especially through the back roads of “old Florida.”
If you haven’t had a chance to visit Leesburg Bike Fest, I suggest you do next time around. Avoid staying in Leesburg as there are not enough hotels in the area and of course, the prices double if not triple, but there are plenty of hotels within an hour away that gives you more options and is definitely cheaper.
Visit Mount Dora, Ocala National Park, and if you have the time, spend a day at Disney or Universal Studios which is about an hour away.
There is plenty to do at the 3 day bike festival; from the typical bike shows and hot body contests, to fifty-four bands were playing this year including Everclear & Brett Michaels.
Next year, skip Daytona, and give Leesburg Bike Fest a try.
