Day 3 was the longest ride of the trilogy… over 60 miles that captured so much of Florida’s landscape… from congested suburban Orlando to a lengthy shoulderless 60mph strip of asphalt through a rural stretch of grazing land to the Atlantic coast that beckoned in Cocoa Beach. I was running out of Florida, but still had some work to do.
