Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Going to Miami Feb 8-11 for Anti-Sweatshop conference

I'm going to be in Miami for the United Students Against Sweatshops conference this upcoming weekend (Feb 8,9,10), and I need some people to chill with at night. I've also been told that the Everglades are pretty damn amazing, and would love to take a (bike?) trip out to see them. Anybody in that area? I also was looking for a place to stay Sunday night because I only have housing Friday and Saturday night. I'll just have myself and a bag o clothes, and I could buy you some beer or whatever for your trouble. I fly out Monday morning.
Thanks.
-Jim

Might want to be a little more specific about where you need to be, Miami is physically about the size of all 5 boroughs of NYC and way harder to get around without a car.

I have a friend that used to work at the Everglades Hostel. I camped there a few times. It is a pretty hippie place, but they have all kinds of tours and rentals that go from the hostel depending on what you are interested in. I have done some of the backcountry swamp camping and tours and it is amazing country. Definitely go prepared if you plan on doing anything because it can be unforgiving.
