Here's a link of my ride from Key Largo to Marathon.  Check it out if your wondering what the roads are like.

I have updated my CrazyGuy article covering the Florida Everglades region. Various construction projects are ongoing, as part of the Everglades restoration plans. Cyclists visiting the area should make note of these plans.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great article.  I planning on riding from Ft. Myers to Key West in a couple of weeks and am on a limited time to get there.  While I've been to the Everglades several times it's been by car or boat and I wasn't sure about the safety of going across the Tamiami on a bike.  Despite the obstacles you relate in your article, I believe this will be our best course.  We'll have vehicle transport for part of the trip so we shouldn't have a problem with the construction on the east end, if it is still a problem.

Anyone familiar with navigating this urban area? So far we have looked on Google maps and charted our best guess of a route through the cities.

You might want to check your Google map suggestions against the maps found on the Florida DOT Bicycle Pedestrian page:
