After breakfast we drove over to Shark Valley in The Everglades where we hired bikes from the Visitor Center. Making sure we had plenty of water, we set off on the Shark Valley Loop Road in searing heat. We reminisced about our previous visits as we cycled through the world famous National Park. The chain came off my bike at around the 3 mile marker so after fixing the problem we decided to turn back. Although we didn’t spot any alligators we saw a large crane take off and fly right past us on the way back. After cooling off at the Visitors Center we went for a little walk around before setting off at about 4 o’clock...passing through a huge thunderstorm on our way to Dolphin Mall.
