Musings about fun between my legs

On my own – to Fort Lauderdale: April 18-19

| 8 Comments

Don and I rode the tandem from Key Largo to Florida City on Saturday, to retrieve our car.  With help from the staff at the Travelodge in Florida City/Homestead, I was able to get started on my route into Miami, using the Adventure Cycling map.  After 30 miles or so, I had a flat on Old Cutler Road – Don was nearby and picked me up and we headed to our Fort Lauderdale hotel.

Sunday morning Don drove me back to Old Cutler Road, to the point where he had picked me up the afternoon before.  The scenery became more urban as I approached downtown, then more marine as I crossed over to close to the ocean.

After 57 miles on Sunday, I arrived at the start hotel, a total of 228.48 miles from Key West!

The Womantour riders are gathering, friends from CCST13, and new faces.  Today I rested, no bike time, tomorrow we meet and get acquainted, then pedal off early Wednesday morning.
