Day 13 - Friday May 19

It's raining this morning... yuk Today's ride takes us 50.3 miles from Florida City to Islamorada. US Highway 1 from Florida City to Key Largo is NOT a bike friendly ride. Instead, we will go east out of Florida City on Card Sound Road (CR-905) to the Card Sound Bridge and northern Key Largo. - in the back door so to speak. Card Sound Road traverses a wild area that once had the small community of Card Sound. All that’s left now is Alabama Jack’s, a funky outdoor restaurant and tiki bar known for its conch fritters and the line of motorcycles it attracts.  At mile 25, we will pass by The  Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge - home of the American Crocodile. Crocodiles forage opportunistically eating fish, snakes, crabs, turtles, birds, small mammals and bicyclists. At our mile 33, we will pass the MM (Mile Marker) 100, which means we will have 100 miles until we reach our goal at MM 0. No visit to Islamorada would be complete without an evening at the Lorelei Cabana Bar to watch the sunset. We plan to stay at the Days Inn and Suites- 82749 Overseas Hwy, Islamorada, FL 33036 - (305) 664-3681.
