Day 7 - Sat May 13

That's not Alan
Today, we're being escorted out of town. Not because of anything Jack said though. Paul and Janet Martin - local Pedego eBike aficionados - will ride with us for the first 7 miles. Today's ride is 43.4 miles. We'll go from Vero Beach to Stuart. Stuart is where my cousin Alan and I started our ill-fated cross-state Seadoo ride a few years ago. That adventure almost ended in disaster as Alan was almost eaten by an Alligator he was harassing in Lake Okeechobee. Later, he was ticketed for speeding in a no-wake zone ($100).  Sometimes, he's out of control. At mile 11.8 we pass by the  Navy UDT-SEAL Museum.  At mile 12.7 we run out of road because of the Fort Pierce Inlet and have to cross over to the mainland. Fortunately that doesn't last long and we are headed back to the islands at mile 16.  Mile 38, out of road again (the island ends) and we're headed inland to Stuart.  We plan to stay at the Best Western Downtown Stuart ,1209 SE Federal Hwy, Stuart, FL 34994 - (772) 287-6200.
