    Did it last year in July. Heat was bearable on an air cooled old bike but make sure to pack good rain gear and keep it quickly accessible. Expect intermittent torrential rain interspersed with high heat. Try to time it so you hit the miami area after rush hour and ride the keys at night so you dont have to spend hours looking at the back of an RV. The 100 miles or so through the keys is 40 miles an hour two lane and there are cops everywhere. Watch out for bicycles and chickens at night

    Well, plans have changed...wedding has been moved to the fall so we may be changing our destination. Thanks for all the advice and tips on getting to the Keys. Now I'm looking at the Nfld/Labrador loop.
