The Venetian Causeway

We took a ride over to Miami Beach. The Venetian Causeway is a popular bicycle commuter route that connects Miami Beach to the mainland. It lived up to its popularity as a pleasant route for a bike ride. It is flat. Traffic is light. Bike lanes are adequate. The views are appealing in a cozy old-Miami way.

I liked the fact that the VC pops you into Miami Beach right at the Lincoln Road Mall area. Which for me is H&M shopping. This is a very good thing. I really like H&M's fast-fashion clothes.

It is easy to see why this is a popular route for bicycle rides.
I'm going to be off the bike for a week or so. I did something incredibly stupid and managed to sprain my left hip. Yes, it surprised me, too. You can sprain a hip. More specifically, I did a number on my hip flexor (iliospsoas). Right now, I can pedal quite nicely (thank you very much). Walking, on the other hand, isn't so good...
