Day 12 - Thur May 18

Today's ride is a relatively short  trip from Coral Gables to Florida City - Homestead - 24.2 miles.  We deserve a break today. Navigating through Miami Traffic was a real nightmare. Our average speed yesterday was 9.4 mph. That's about 5 mph slower than we have been averaging. People here DO NOT know how to drive! We had our first rain shower of the entire trip in Miami around noon. I lost my favorite sunglasses that I've taken on two previous bike trips. But, at the end of the day, we had a great Cuban meal at Havana Harry's. We will finish the M-Path early this morning and pick up the South Dade Trail. The South Dade Trail follows the "Bus Only" road for around 20 miles. We will pass 56 Busway stations on our way south. The areas around the trail range from heavily urbanized to suburban to rural, and are all influenced by the nearby US Highway 1. The M-Path and South Dade Trail have been designated as part of the East Coast Greenway’s system of trails between Key West and Maine. We plan to stay at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Florida City-35200 S Dixie Hwy, Florida City, FL 33034 (305) 247-3414 . Tomorrow - Day 13 - will be our first day in the Keys. It'll be a long day as well - 50 miles to Islamorada. Can't wait!
