Sunday’s adventure included participating in the Old Cutler Biathlon in Miami. The event started at Cocoplum Circle where the Commodore Bike Trail meets the Old Cutler Trail. We rode along the trail shaded by the fichus trees and banyans that line the road. The numerous roots which ripple the road insured our pace would be leisurely.
Two miles later we parked our bikes and began the walking phase of the biathlon at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden where we strolled through the grounds taking pictures and enjoying the Chapungu exhibit of more than 80 stone sculptures displayed throughout the grounds.
After walking the garden for over an hour we managed to finish the final leg of the adventure riding back to Cocoplum ready for the drive back to Ocala. No competition, no awards, no hurried pace, my kind of biathlon. Maybe next time we’ll tackle the Old Cutler Tri stopping at Matheson Hammock Park for a quick dip!
