Florida Keys Travel Guide

Clown and Artist to Unicycle across Florida Keys

Posted: Nov. 23rd, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Unicycle Bridge Tour Florida Keys

The Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail Unicycle Tour is collaboration between a clown and a sculptor who have passion for transportation routes and unicycles. Together they will ride 107 miles over 42 bridges in 5 days on unicycles to celebrate the creation of the Oversees Heritage Trail and the centennial of the Oversees Railway.

  The Overseas Highway is a 127.5-mile highway carrying U.S. Route 1 through the Florida Keys. Large parts of it were built on the former right-of-way of the Overseas Railroad. The railway was completed in 1912. The Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail features more than 70 miles of existing trail paved in segments along a planned, 106-mile corridor from Key Largo to Key West. Much of the remaining trail is now in design or under construction. Paralleling U.S. Highway 1, which is designated as a National Scenic Highway and All-American Road, this recreational pathway incorporates 23 of the historic Flagler Railroad bridges. The trail and its historic bridges provide a beneficial, alternative transportation route that links the Keys’ island communities.
