Question for Botto

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Question for Botto

Are you still posting here? I am thinking of getting back into road bike forums, and wanted to know what the forecast was.

Best area to ride in would be Key Biscayne, it's a couple of miles away from Coral Gables as well. Send me a PM closer to the date and I fill you in on the rides or best times to go if you're interested.

Get on A1A at the park in Ft. Lauderdale at 17th street. Head south to West Palm. You have bike lanes both ways, great views, lots of other cyclists, flat and level. 100 miles round trip or less if you choose. The easiest century you will ever ride, unless the wind is blowing!!
