The South Florida Bike Coalition is featured in the cover article of this month’s Biscayne Times: Two Wheels Are Better Than Four.
The piece profiles four leisure bike rides along the City of Miami’s Biscayne corridor, including one along one portion of the City’s ‘RiverWalk’ where I rode with SFBC friend (the writer, Dina Weinstein) through Downtown Miami’s Bayfront Park, scenic and surprising Brickell Key, Mary Brickell Village for a little shopping and on to Alice Wainwright Park (picnic-perfect). It was a pleasurably successful challenge getting Dina to ride off the sidewalk and through busy traffic so I wish that storyline had made it into the piece. That said, I think it is always worth celebrating when our local newspapers demonstrate a willingness to cover bicycling – for fun, for transportation, for getting to know our cities and neighborhoods better. You can pick up your free copy at various places around town or click here to read the article online. Also, if you’ve got a great ride you think should be profiled in your neighborhood, let us know. Dina tells us she would be interested in riding and writing similar pieces for other publications, too.
