Key Colony Beach to Cudjoe Key

I rode 34.2 miles Wednesday to Cudjoe Key. I stayed a couple of days with my friends Paul and Debby Clarin. I worked with Paul at The Roanoke Times when he was controller. He’s now the Publisher of the Key West Citizen. We talked late into the night leading to the late posting on Thursday.

Here’s the map from Wednesday ride.
