Took a week to Florida to escape Illinois winter. Key West was where I was able to do my biking. Talked to a female biker who, with her nephew, were biking from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West. I inquired which route they followed and she indicated it was quite doable on Highway 1. As a result, the next time I'm in Florida visiting my friend in West Palm Beach, I will take a few days and ride to Key West. My route from Key West was a 40 mile round trip from Maple Key. 30 of those miles were not on the highway, rather a nice bike trail that paralleled route 1. Had a great time but when I returned the icy cold hand of winter awaited me as I had to shovel snow off my driveway.
