Ready for a spectacular February ride in 70 degree weather?  We have found an ideal ride, call it early season or winter getaway, to hold your attention, with enough quirky sideshows to keep you amused.  We will ride the entire 113 mile length of the famed Overseas Highway from Key Largo to Key West, and then cruise to Fort Meyers from Key West on a modern, luxury catamaran and from there ride Sanibel and Captiva Islands. These islands are a special place whether it is your first time to the famous islands or you are a regular. Sanibel Island is the perfect place to stroll by the lighthouse or enjoy a trip through Ding Darling wildlife preserve looking for amazing animals and birds. The tour is also ideal for couples or those who might want a beach vacation without actually lying around on a beach.  As with all our bike tours, e-bike rental is also now available.

In riding the Keys, we discovered some truths: the ocean and Gulf are as wide and at least as blue as Montana’s Big Sky; as deep as the Rockies are high; the coral reefs of the Keys rival the color country of Utah’s canyons and its wildlife is as fascinating as that of Yellowstone. Palm trees and mangrove swamps and tropical orchids are the wildflowers of the Keys; crocodiles and manatees and the occasional panther are the protected wildlife. In the West we have Bear Valley and Death Valley; in the Keys there is Shark Valley. Road signs in the West warn of elk or deer crossings; in the Keys are alligator warnings; river valleys in the Keys are rivers of grass and snorkeling or kayaking replace hiking as offered activities on layover days.  In short it reinforces what we all know-there is no part of America that is not special and glorious.  This is a unique and beautiful tour and we are excited to be offering a Florida Keys trip.
