Meta Monday: Sharrows & Billboards

Filling up our inbox are some great pictures from readers like you:

Here’s a photo from our friend and member, Eddie Suarez of the TriLocos, trying out the new Shared Use Lane Markings (sharrows) on Washington Avenue in Miami Beach:

There’s Victor Dover up front, Andres Gomez in the green, Andrea England in the foreground and Eddie smiling at us. The photo credit goes to local racing/training team icon, Patty Arias. Patty, you ride with everyone!? This fun, motley crew met up through trianing at Team Footworks; where or how did you meet the people you ride with?

A RIDE A DAY… A few of you have told us you’ve seen the new billboard, part of our collaborative effort with the City of Miami to promote bicycling through public service advertisements. Here’s our first photo:

From Collin Worth, City of Miami Bicycle Coordinator: “These will be seen approximately 500,000 times a day at the two billboard locations on I-95.” You can see these at 79th Street or in Downtown Miami if you are driving northbound on I-95. Collin also reminded us that the City will continue to take submissions so if you’d like to see your own pro-bicycling message plastered in a 14′ x 48′ frame for Miami’s driving masses to see, please share! Details here.  Again, thanks to Brandt Absolu for submitting both the designs that have made it up so far.

Thanks for sharing the photos and stories. Happy New Year from everyone at the South Florida Bike Coalition.
