30 years riding, 15 years writing
This is where I ride in the mornings, the cool breeze and the scent of the ocean are invigorating. In the distance is the William Powell Bridge.
Rickenbacker Causeway is 8.5 miles long, from the toll entrance, to the Lighthouse at Bill Baggs State Park. There are bike lanes on both sides of the road, cars pay attention to you on Key Biscayne.
Bill Baggs doesn’t open till 8:00 AM, so early morning bike riders make the turn back at the park entrance, shortening the length of the ride by a mile.
My apartment is 2.5 miles from the entrance, so I get 20 miles in every time I do the Key Biscayne loop.
