Florida Part 2: The Keys

I read on the FL Bicycle Association website there are 3 ways to get to the Keys.  First is route 1 straight to Key West, second is Card Sound Rd.  to Rte 1 in Key Largo, and third is to take your bike on the bus.  Route 1 has a shoulder but very heavy fast moving traffic.  Card Sound Rd. is low traffic, no shoulder, but longer and supposedly crawling with crocodiles.  The article warned crocodiles can move at 30 mph and cyclists should be ready to sprint for their lives.  I only saw one crocodile, and 3 manatees, in the mangrove river along the road.  None of them chased me.
