'Rode up 524 and Adamson to get to Palmetto and Pine near Cocoa today, then cut west towards Cherven and Satellite Rd. North of Cherven, it was the driest I've ever seen it. The sand was loose, and some of the smaller canals/ditches were crossable without getting wet. The whoops get crazy in a few places on a big DR rolling 70/30 rubber, with not much room for error when riding anywhere near fast between the palmettos, trees, and overgrown canals. A lot of people were out shooting and fishing today, so after a quick run through the most open trails, I decided to go find the place Mark described above. Turning E off US1 onto E Jayjay Rd., north of Chain-Of-Lakes Park took me to Hammock Rd. It's strange finding myself in this area, as I lived in Titusville for a few months in HS, between Brewer ME and Chicago. The Astronaut HS X-country team used to run the dirt roads up north of town here, all the way to County Line Rd. I can't believe I'm dualsporting them over 20yrs later. The sand here is pretty packed and easy to negotiate right now. I can smell the river beyond the trees. There are MILES of dirt roads in this network...Roads the developers have just never gotten to. These will be must-do rides for later. We saw a LOT of birds and other wildlife out by Kennedy SC when we did the bus tour with my GF's family. I can't wait to see what other critters abound.
