From Saturday’s bike ride. Despite the scenery, I do not recommend that stretch of Krome Ave.

    yeah, the whole stinking way. GM reports 62 miles, though my odometer says it was actually 67, after factoring in deviation from the “perfect” route, and the obvious variations and wobbling. I didn’t really plan it out, and I wasn’t very clear on what was ahead of me when I turned left onto Krome. I knew there was a big gas station plaza at Tamiami Trail (and a BBQ place), but I was out of water and didn’t realize what was happening until I passed (after the point of no return) a sign reading “Tamiami Trail 10 miles.”

    Whatever, i made it. But that stretch of TT has no shoulder, and there are 18-wheelers zipping by at 55+mph — I wouldn’t try it again, and I wouldn’t recommend it to a friend.
