    Riding from Miami to key West

    Hello everybody, I am planning on making a trip from Miami to Key West on a bike and I am concerned with two major issues:

    1- What route is better to get from Florida City to Key Largo? US – 1 or Card Sound Road?
    2- After I get to Key West… how could I get back to Miami? I know a lot of people have done this already and I would like to hear your advice. Is there public bus transportation?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    Hi Chizpa -

    Heading down to get wasted away again?

    Having driven both, I'd reckon that Card Sound Road would be better from a traffic standpoint (also, you get to stop at Alabama Jack's on the way down).

    It looks like there's a shuttle ferry from Miami to KW...I'd reckon you could hop a ride on the return trip.

    Enjoy Cayo Hueso, watch out for drunk tourists on scooters and remember to catch the sunset at Mallory Square (Hmm..think I've been there, before?)
    There's nothing for you to see here...just move along, now...

    Well I guess card sound road is the one then. But about the shuttle ferry... I believe hat the Key West/Miami route is not in service any more. Only Marco Island and Fort Myers. Do you know of any other alternative?
