Key West or Bust
(A multi day ~ 400 mile bike trip: Sarasota to Key West)

Palm Trees
Destination: Key West
The Bike
Get there on this.
The Ferry
Return on this:
Key West to Ft Myers on the ferry.

Route One
Probable route, east out of Osprey through Arcadia.
Route 2
Not a likely route, but under consideration. US 41south > much of it has a bike lane, departure now from Osprey, Florida - not 6216 as above.

The details:
If this happens, ETA would probably be around early to mid March, 2015, with a return in 7 to 10 days. Ideally friends would drive to Ft Myers to take the ferry TO Key West to meet us, then we would all spend at least a night in Key West for dinner, and have brunch the following morning. We would then all return together on the evening ferry to Ft Myers for an auto trip the rest of the way home.

Miles per day: Shoot for 50 to 80 miles per day, depending on weather.
Speed: Shoot for 15 to 18 MPH, depending on weather.
Other: I like to hit the road around 5:30 - 6:00 a.m., less traffic, less wind, less sun, less heat. Hopefully get off the road by mid-afternoon.
