Key West
to
Jupiter
  • On Day One you will be a cyclo tourist in southeast Florida.  You will transit some quite busy sections through the Keys and Miami Beach on your way to Jupiter.  We cannot stress enough that if you are not comfortable riding in traffic, DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS RIDE.  We don't want anyone saying afterwards "Had I known about the traffic ...". 
  • For the most part on any heavy traffic roads there are good shoulders and/or bike paths available for riding.  
  • The Key West start and riding through the Keys provides a unique riding experience.  It’s a beautiful ride.  Riding through Miami, sometimes called “The Capital of the Caribbean”, and Miami Beach, only add to that experience, but the combination does make for a long day.  The first overnight is Jupiter FL, roughly a 430km day.
    Day 2
    Jupiter
    to
    Daytona Beach
    • On Day 2, from Jupiter to the Oceanside Inn in Daytona Beach, you will see a lot of water – ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.  Both South Florida and Central Florida Randonneurs use these roads extensively.  
    • Most people will arrive in Daytona Beach in good time to perhaps dip their toes in the ocean on the “World’s Most Famous Beach”.  Many cyclists ride up and down the beach, it’s that hard packed and flat … no, we don’t actually have beach riding on the cue sheet, but it was tempting.  Who knows, we could change our mind … have to check out the tides for that day.
    Day 3
    Daytona Beach
    to
    Lake Wales
    • Day 3, from Daytona Beach to the Hampton Inn, Lake Wales, takes you inland.  You will actually have some climbing on the hills around Orlando.
    Day 4
    Lake Wales
    to
    Fort Myers Beach
    • Day 4 takes you back to Fort Myers Beach, the starting point for most riders who took the ferry over to Key West.
