Volusia County Loop Progress

I checked out the status of the Volusia County Trail work on the Edgewater & Deltona connection to the Brevard county line.  It's happening, folks!   Great progress.  Although I must stress that the trail is NOT open yet and there are chunks missing, I encountered two separate intrepid ladies who were out pushing the envelope.  Tammy later wrote me that she was able to ride all the way from Edgewater to Titusville, pushing her bike through some sandy patches along the way.   Some seriously hefty bridges!  There is lots of work still to be done.  And that pesky section from Guise Road to Gobblers Lodge will not be started until next year.  Kudos to Volusia County for the great progress!  Here's an overview of the anticipated dates.

Visit to Black Dolphin Inn

We rode a very scenic and pleasant section of the Greenway from New Smyrna south down Riverside Drive to US1.  If you really want to treat yourself to a luxury experience after a long ride, I recommend the Black Dolphin Inn, one of the few 4 Diamond Hotels in Florida and right ON the trail.  You can't beat the convenience and during the week there is a last-minute 20% discount!  There are a number of options for dining and accommodations along this section in all price ranges.
