Message for Simon Kirk re Tamiami Trail

Hi Simon you left me a message but as you are not a member I am unable to reply directly.  Rec you join and you will get all the info you need. To try and answer your question -
http://www.southfloridaonline.com/article_tamiami_trail.htm
might be a start in your research.  It is a busy tourist route but does have a shoulder and is long and straight much of the way.  However, accommodation might be your problem as not allowed to wild camp along the way, the place is a swamp and full of alligators.  It depends on what distance you are able to do each day. Most people seem to by-pass this bit using a ferry.  My advise would be to ask the question on the forum and you will get more local knowledge.  I know more about central Florida. I may well be in Florida - just south of Orlanda when you arrive - let me know your dates and route The ACA connector route passes very close to my house in Celebration. and there are several trails I would recommend. Good luck and have a great trip

I've thought about cycling Tamiami Trail too, but man those mosquitos would drain you dry in a no time!
