Measure twice, cut once.

I rode from Stuart to West Palm Beach today. I’m over half way to Key West! I forgot to measure my options for finding a hotel. I was almost all the way through West Palm when I started looking for hotels and couldn’t find any in my price range in the South Palm Beach area. My hotels.com app found one for 799 a night! That’s when I decided to turn back around and look for something closer to the downtown area. I found a Red Roof Inn reasonably priced near I-95. I had to ride back the wrong way 8 miles to find it though.

Here’s the map from today (you can click on it to see it on Strava.com) and pictures:

Here’s a shaky little video I took while riding along the beach.

  1. I enjoyed watching your video! I bet I could find all sorts of interesting creatures, reptiles, and such in the vegetation along the road there. I’m glad you had nice weather for riding today! Love you!

  2. Maybe the guy “looking poor” had to stay at that hotel and didn’t ask price before spending the night. And, it Looks like the Jupiter folks are worried or guilty about taking the ocean for themselves, check out all the surveillance cameras on that post! And I loved the video! Can’t wait til we get to ride with ya on the overseas highway to key west! Safe travels, love ya!
