Gear Talk / Re: Retiring, getting into self contained touring

Try a recumbent !!!!,   I am 70 and can easily do 100 mile days. , no sore butt, back ,neck wrists . I also have 3 very fancy CF  bikes that hang from the rafters because the lightening P38 recumbent is sooooo much more comfortable .
Look on ebay or Craigslist for a decent recumbent , check out reputable  builders and dealers. one test ride will really open your eyes ?

General Discussion / Re: Fort Myers to Key west

April 2013 I did Fort Lauderdale to Key West and back  on my recumbent .
The road from Homestead down into the Keys is a pleasure . The bike shoulders are wide ,and in many places you will ride on the old Flagler rails to trails cycle path . There are many places to stop for food and refreshments . Unfortunately I didn't camp , so can't help you there .
DO TAKE lots of sun cream , I stopped and bought a loose long sleeve shirt and a " muff" that fishermen use to protect their faces and lips from sun burn .
I enjoyed the ride so much I'm looking for a few days to do it again
ENJOY !!!!!,

Dont be despondent ,   Lots of people will read your emails   , and keep the information to be used later .
Thanks for the idea though . I did quite a lot of riding 2 years ago in that area , and wished that I had access to local suggestions like yours.
I plane to be back in PNW later this year , and will try your route .
Once again thanks for your help .
