Day 6 was originally going to be maybe 20 mile or so.
Riding began with me meeting my family at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Little did I know the day would end with another 100k tacked on.
After lunch at Frenchy’s in Clearwater, I decided to head south on the Key.
Maybe swing towards St. Pete and visit Michael & Carol at 66fixed.
It was a slow cruise. As it often does, the route included drawbridges.
I never mind watching the boats move along.
I stopped at this kitschy aquatic scene.
I’d never get anywhere if I stopped at every random Florida style signage that caught my eye!
At around sunset I rolled into 66Fixed. Minute later the instagram comments I had gotten made sense.
66 is closing! Michael & Carol have decided to move on from the a bike shop biz.
But, they’ll be staying in the industry! Look out for more updates on what they do next.
I’ve been visiting this shop every trip to Florida since 2007 and will be bummed to see it go!
I am excited to see them move on to the next chapter and wish them both all the best!
If you’re in the market for ANYTHING.
Call or email the shop now for deals on components, frames etc.
Hell, he might let these Cinelli angel bars go!
My route back up to Largo was chilly & dark on the Pinellas Trail.
I met up with my family at the park to check out the lights and saw Florida’s only snowmobile.
Or is that a Sea-doo?
