After riding yesterday to the very tip of Florida’s Atlantic Coast beaches at the north entrance to Biscayne Bay
today I will make my way onto the Florida Keys! Here’s a couple of postcards from yesterday’s ride, which somehow managed to include a leaky gas main and a little less than two hours of riding across the Miami metro area at night.
I’m starting the day in Cutler Bay, a completely unremarkable portion of Miami’s urban sprawl north of the old Homestead Air Force Base, which has been decommissioned and closed. I’ll head south on minor roads until I run into Card Sound Road, which crosses onto the Keys east of US Highway 1 over the toll bridge shown on the map. From there I’ll ride to John Pennekamp State Park just outside Key Largo and camp there for the night.
Here’s where I am right now in the context of the entire trip
and of Florida
and of the Keys.
Margaritaville, here I come!
