72 hours to key west


For someone who hadn’t yet explored southern Florida, this was an amazing and unique way to go about it – biking through the Everglades, next to the ocean, over long bridges, and ending in magical Key West! What an adventure! Even training for the ride was interesting. And to top it all off, I got to spend time with some great people.

Kevin and Joanna are great even organizers. Their attention to detail made the ride even better than I could have ever expected. There is not a doubt in my mind that this ride will be on my calendar each year moving forward.
Leslie- Orlando, FL
The 72 hours to Key West ride is one of the best organized rides I have ridden. It was very well organized with SAG support and was a great opportunity to meet fellow cyclists. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and cannot wait to do it again next year.

Amazingly fun, well organized tour ride through spectacular vistas of the glades and the ocean with a great group of riders and organizers. Do not leave this opportunity unchecked on your bucket list!
Ron- Palm Harbour, FL
This is the ride for those that want to push themselves just a little bit, enjoy great vistas, water, some of the best folks around and a weekend of fun.

I drove 10 hours south looking for a new cycling challenge and instead had the ride of my life. A true bucket list experience! I can’t wait to go again next year!
John- Atlanta, GA
This event is fun because it’s not too hard and not too easy – nicely balanced for both the serious or semi-serious rider (I wouldn’t recommend for casual riders). Day 1 is quite challenging because of distance, potential heat and winds, with a pleasant start but a rugged finish that sets you up for days 2 and 3, which gradually become more beautiful and enthralling. The last 50 miles into Key West are scenically delightful, the 7-mile bridge being a particular highlight, and are an excellent preparation for your entry to Key West, and a well-deserved evening of celebrations!
Eric- Iowa
I was a bit skeptical and concerned about safety on Tamiami Trail and Krome Ave at first. However, the road conditions were not that bad, Tamiami Trail was one of the mst scenic rides I’ve ever done. The group was great and no one was ever dropped, everyone was looking out for each other and the experience as a whole exceeded my expectations.
