- Ferries: There is one that goes from Miami to Key West and vice versa. Another goes from Fort Meyers Beach to Key West and vice versa.
- There are several towns along the Keys that can be used as bases for loop tours.
- The entire length of the Keys highway has either wide paved shoulders or nice bike trails.
- You get to spend lots of time riding over bridges, including one that is 7 miles long.
|The ferry is a great way to get from Key West to the mainland.|
|You are always near the ocean on the Keys bike trail.|
|This is our style of bicycle tour "camping." We have lots of picnic meals, but at inexpensive motels.|
|Key West isn't all tourist t-shirt shops. This is Key West, too.|
|One of the many, many bridges.|
|See the storm? We got very wet a few miles down the road...|
I like the Keys in October and November, and that is when I think we'll head there next. We keep meaning to go with the Everglades Bicycle Club tour of the Keys in November, so that is among the options. But I don't tend to wander and dilly-dally on group tours, and I enjoy doing just that in the Keys. So we'll just see what makes the final cut. It's not like there are any bad tour options in the Keys...
