    Default Route to Leesburg

    Hi everyone!

    I was wondering if anyone could chime in on how route 33 is from Polk City up to Leesburg?

    We rode up to Leesburg in November to pick up the bike (yes, I crossed over) and came up 27 all the way. I was not particularly thrilled with all the construction and traffic on 27 North of I-4. So, I was thinking that taking 17 up to Bartow, 98/700 up to 659, and then 659 to 33 for the rest of the way.

    Good idea or bad idea?

    Thanks as always!

    I don't know about 659 but 33 is good to Groveland. I do in in an 18 wheeler. Are you looking for speed or the view.

    How are you coming out of Fort Myers I would take 80 to 31 to 70 to 17.

    Your route up is the same as mine.

    I'm looking for more view than speed but mainly less construction and congestion. 27 was just a mess in November and I doubt if it's improved much.

    Thanks for the feedback!!!

    Honestly, I could not tell you how I go. I pic a direction an go, I have been know to get some what lost. . It takes me longer because I take all the back roads. We stop at some point for breakfast. We leave at 6am Friday. And at some point around noon we will stop for lunch and a beer. I don't get their till around 2. We stay Fri. and Sat and come back Sun. morning. I can't check in till 1 or two, so we just take out time and enjoy the ride. If I was going for the day, and I don't any more, I would be on the highway at speed. Smitt

    We are getting so close. I'm looking forward so much to getting out of Pinellas county, 5 days off and just a well needed ride. Nine more day's, is it me or is it dragging like my pegs on a hard turn, Smitt
