I survived the home of Florida Man! What a great start to the trip. After starting in Jax Beach, I went 11 miles on A1A to take my first automobile ferry. We crossed the St. John’s River on the Mayport Ferry.
After the ferry, I followed the East Coast Greenway north to Fernandina Beach. More than 50% of my route today was a bike path. Part oceanside, part wooded and part road, it was a nice scenic route.
Then I hit Georgia! Unfortunately, that ended the biggest savior of my trip so far. The bike lane. The shoulder of the road went from 4ft to 1ft. Driver’s job just got busier!
As I was checking in to my hotel, I was telling the clerk about my trip. She told me people in town (Kingsland) were talking about the guy on the side of the road on the scooter. I’m getting noticed!
More East Coast Greenway tomorrow towards St. Simons Island. Until then…
