the vibe: cycling, nature, local kitsch everglades city is a wild-west cowboy town in the swamp

— renegade, independent, adventurous – with great seafood and stories to tell.

lots of other stuff to do (on your own) before/after the bicycle ride:

kayak,   boardwalks,   fishing,   hiking,   airboats,   museums,   boat tour.

meet-up saturday night for seafood at Camellia St Grill & campfire.

the smooth ride: not a single hill, but a great stretch of pavement in the

wilds of the everglades, with few stop signs and no chasing dogs.

  16 or 62 miles – with options to shorten or lengthen your ride

see website for route details

the bumpy ride: half of route is on dirt road in boondocks of fakahatchee

swamp, with a local guide.  skinny tires NOT recommended.

27 miles, with options to shorten or lengthen your ride
