For those prepared to look, Florida offers so much more than just the theme parks of Orlando and winter golf! This trip will let you see all that Florida has to offer, from the sub-tropical ‘Keys’ so loved by Ernest Hemingway to the old colonial splendour of St Augustine.
Our trip starts and ends in Miami with a wide choice of convenient flight connections. The route will take us up the largely urbanised east coast of south Florida, to the old colonial city of St Augustine, then across the peninsula and down through national parks and swampland to Fort Meyers beach. From here we take the high speed ferry to Key West for the last 170 mile stretch along the Florida Keys back to Miami.
In terms of terrain, there are no real hills to speak of, apart from gentle inclines, but there are long stretches of remote countryside as we cross the hinterland.
This two week trip is suitable for all regular cyclists with an average of 65 miles per day but virtually no climbing. Each day you will be provided with maps and turn-by-turn instructions, though these will be in a different format to the famous Bike Adventures ‘yellow sheets’. For those with SatNav a .GPX file will be made available before departure.
Accommodation is in motels and hotels. Because accommodation in the US is generally sold ‘by the room’ we regret that our supplement for single occupancy is higher than for our European routes.
