This 10-mile bicycle jaunt takes us across the charming
island of Key Biscayne - so hospitable that it was sought out by the Tequesta
Indians that first inhabited South Florida.
Hear the story of how the growing number of wrecks brought to this place
a remote lighthouse outpost that to this day remains Miami-Dade County’s oldest
structure. Reflect on the settlers of
the early coconut palm plantations that braved hostile Seminoles and
After passing through the village of Key Biscayne we will explore the unusual oddity of an antiquated and abandoned zoo that echoes of visitations past. Watch out for the new tenants: a large variety of waterfowl and iguanas in every imaginable size and color combination. Enjoy the pleasures of a slower pace almost as if it were ripped from the pages of a less hectic era.
As you pedal through the lush flora you will see how the devastating force of Hurricane Andrew created a unique chance that allowed the restoration of the original ecosystem. Interspersed with the island’s abundant tropical vegetation, you will experience breathtaking views of the watery off shore village of Stiltsville and white sand beaches facing the open ocean.
