Riding a Beach Cruiser

I took the family down to Ft Meyers for a little Spring Break vacation and on when we arrived I was looking into the window of the local Bike Rental Shop and spied this hot looking fixie!  I had called around to the various shops during the prior week and found you could rent road bikes and beach cruisers.  Being that Ft Meyers is so flat, a fixie would be perfect but I had no such luck finding one but when I saw this I thought there was hope.


What I wanted to rent


What I got.


I went out for a quick spin down the road from the shop



And returned at the water's edge!



Despite the crappy bike it was fun




The next morning I went out for a longer ride



Down the beach from the hotel till I couldn't ride any further



Sunrise was spectacular



Heading back over to the road, I continued south to Lover's key



And the sun rising was even more spectacular




Turning around on Lover's Key, I tried a little gravel, too



Climbed one of the highest point in Ft Meyers



Which happens to be a bridge



Drafted a snowbird



This guy had to have been at least 80



Hope I don't look like that when I get to be that age





Afternoon ride before turning the bike back in



I rode in flip flops!



Bike sucked but still had fun



And rewarded myself for good ride ridden!
