This year's Boston winter, which is now starting to make the place look and feel like something
up in the Yukon, has once again got me thinking about what life might be like in the Sunshine
state. Thus, I am seeking advice from experienced FL cyclists. I cannot see myself retiring
in less than 10 years (I hope) and dealing with this Malarky. (I'm subbing that for another word
that is not permitted. ) What I know so far:
-It's very humid, starting in May. That is fine, as long as it does not snow, or become brutally cold.
-There is the occasional Hurricane, and sometimes power outages that can last for days.
-Bugs, and various reptilian creatures. Fair enough.
-Certain areas of the state are not friendly toward cyclists.
-Lots of very old retired ladies, in gigantic Buicks, who just do not see you. (I've been told)
-Nice and warm. No snow, no potholes.
-Plenty of good places to ride, if you know where.
-Sunsets can't be beat.
-Place is supposed to be good for retired people.
Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance,
from a New Englander who has just plain had enough.
