The Epic Bike Ride – Key West to New Jersey

I’ve set out a personal challenge to ride a bike along much of the east coast starting in Florida. A friend, Tom Landes, who rode this route a few years ago was the inspiration for the idea. Here’s a quick look how Google Maps sees the challenge:

Google’s idea of a bike ride from Key West to New Jersey

As you can see, following this route the entire trip will be 1595 miles. My objective is to get back to home in Morristown by Saturday, May 12, 2018. I’ll hit the road on the morning of April 11, leaving 31 days to complete the trip. We are counting on making an average of 50 miles per day. But our route will vary from this map. Just getting out to the Key West will require a extra 3 days.
