Day 9 - Mon May 15

Today's ride takes us from Juno Beach to Highland Beach, a distance of 36.5 miles. We will need to shave and  dress in our best bike shorts today because we will be passing through some of the most highfalutin neighborhoods of the entire trip - West Palm Beach. West Palm Beach is west of Palm Beach, south of Palm Beach Gardens and North Palm Beach, southwest of Palm Beach Shores, and east of Royal Palm Beach. This group of cities and the vicinity is known as—wait for it—“the Palm Beaches.” They are located in Palm Beach County. It’s a beach to keep straight. Heck, we'll even drive right by our Southern White House today - The Mar-a-Lago Club at mile 18.2. After lunch with the President, we'll go another 18 miles south where poor people (relatively speaking of course) live and we can afford a place to stay.  We will stay at the Delray Sands Resort - 2809 S Ocean Blvd, Highland Beach, FL 33487 - (561) 278-6241
