tandem in myakka

florida is made of sand.
we've been on siesta key nearly every year since 2003 and today, we finally made it! no beach, no beach bikes, this monday has been an absolutely different day: we went to the other side of the i75 to visit the myakka river state park (in fact, our plan last friday, unfortunately we had to make a u-turn after pouring rain started on the countryside) and discovered another side of florida with a tandem through landscapes of woodlands, wetlands, prairies and shady oak & palm hammocks. our first tandem ride btw, and a though workout on the very sandy ground.
