The Florida Keys 1000 is a ride between Key Largo, Florida and Key West, Florida on a two lane speed restricted highway.  In order to ride 1000 miles, you must ride this route, and return 5 times; OR you may choose to ride other combinations of roads between these two locations.  The challenge of the ride is the sheer monotony of riding  back and forth, though the small communities of the Keys, and across the open bridges of the Overseas Highway.  

Read the rules for the iconic SaddleSore 1000 on the Ironbutt Association site.  The rules for this ride are similar and you will get valuable background information.
