|This is a brand new route for 2019. It starts
in the HAMMOCKS area of Miami on 88th St near Krome Ave. The
route takes the new section of Krome with a bike trail or bike lanes
until it ends and then turns West and South out into the REDLANDS area
until it hits Ingram Highway.. Then West toward the
'Glades! The first control stop
is at the Ernest Coe Visitor Center. After leaving the
visitor the route comes to the main entrance where there is a fee
(sigh) of $8 to enter the park.. But it will be worth it!
There is now about 28 miles of new asphault to ride on so
deal with the 10 miles of bumpy roads until you hit the new stuff..
After that spend time looking for wildlife.. Lots of birds are in the
park and you may see alagators in the canals next to the road.
At the end of the road is Flamingo, FL. In the main parking area there
will be a place setup to serve lunch. After lunch the route goes back
to the park entrance and out on Ingram Highway. The route
turns north and goes by "Robert Is Here" fruit stand where one can find
delicious fruit smoothies or other things to snack on. From
there the route zigzags north a bit until we can get back onto the new
section of Krome to take the 8 miles of bike lane or bike trail back to
