We used the Adventure Cycling Association's Florida Connector map and started in Port Charlotte. We traveled to Fort Myers Beach, then headed east across the state to Fort Lauderdale where we continued with the ACA Atlantic Coast Section 7 map and made our way to Key West. We stayed there for a couple of days then took the ferry service back to Fort Myers Beach. From there we retraced one leg of our route back to our car in Port Charlotte. This was an interesting loop to travel. The Adventure Cycling Association maps were very helpful. The only snags that we had were on the I 75 ramps at Weston ( see http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/page/?o=RrzKj&page_id=143685&v=3h for a full description of our problems) and the heavy traffic and dangerous, narrow road conditions on Card Sound Road outside of Florida City ( see http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/page/?o=RrzKj&page_id=144023&v=3B ). Thanks for the helpful maps. If the above mentioned problems were fixed in future publications of these maps, the entire route for bicycle tourists doing the Florida Loop would be more enjoyable and much safer.
