    Miami Area Bicycling

    I'll be in the area of the Miami Airport for just over a week toward the last half of this month. I'm thinking of bringing my folder along with me. Are there any good areas to ride ? Hows the traffic ? How about the beach, any trails?

    Not a lot of responses on this but now that I'm finishing up my trip, I'll add my own observations. I brought my folder on Alaska Airlines, which applied the standard $20 fee for checked luggage, hope to be as lucky on the way back tomorrow. I rode Key Biscayne twice while there which provided a fairly nice 28 mile trip, which I added to by continuing onto the city of Miami. It's a $1.50 charge to cross the bridge, parking on the other side is free, so that is what I did, as I knew it would have been more of a problem and more expensive to park in Miami. Traffic wasn't too bad, the drivers were another story. The other days, I just rode along Flamingo road which provided my desired work out, but nothing special. Having said all of this, I'm glad I brought the bike.
