If you think all of Florida is flat, you've missed west central Florida near Brooksville, just 45 miles north of downtown Tampa. I've spent lots of seat time in this area, so I'll give you some of my personal favorites. Ride this route starting at Burwell Road/ Hwy 575, so you end in Brooksville. Don't miss the view at the top of the hill as you pass Boyette's Grove and Citrus Attraction. It's just after you turn left off Old Spring Lake Road.

The Lake Lindsey Mall & Deli, on the corner of Hwy 581 and Hwy 476. The cuban sandwich is good.

Take it slow to enjoy Hwy 39 thru Istachatta. There's a tree canopy leading into Floral City on Hwy 48.
