A great start - the inaugural "Bike By The Bay" - Saturday, October 17, 2015
The weekend of October 17 & 18 was a huge weekend for bike events with events going on in Coral Gables, Miami Beach, South Miami and south Miami-Dade. Fear of projected poor weather fueled brief thoughts of cancellation, but sticking to the plan was rewarded with outstanding weather. Hundreds got pumped up for the Oct. 17 road-sharing safety awareness event, "Bike on the Bay." A fun morning of meeting up with friends and neighbors, riding along the Old Cutler Bike Trail, one of the most scenic places to ride a bike (or walk, job or simply take time to enjoy local nature).
Palmetto Bay was host to a share the road safety-awareness bike ride sponsored by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). A safety-awareness event was held post ride at the Deering Estate Visitor Center Parking Lot.
