Saturday, October 17, 2015 - "Bike on The Bay" including a family bike ride from Black Point beginning at 8 AM to Miami-Dade County's Deering Estate where there will be a fun morning of activities scheduled up to noon. 
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).
November 13, 14 & 15 was a very busy weekend impacted by rains all weekend.  The WHEELS Big Bash was forced to shut down early on Saturday due to torrential rain. A nice ride made very wet - the WHEEL Bike Train that stated/ended in South Miami, running down the South Dade Bike Trail, onto 168 Street, west through Larry & Penny Thompson Park, onto and south through the Black Creek Trail to Black Point then up through Cutler Bay, Palmetto Bay, and through Pinecrest on the Old Cutler Trail back to South Miami.  
Let's ride.  Please consider this your invitation (or excuse) to ride Palmetto Bay via bicycle this Sunday.  The meet up is 8:00 AM (thank you Vanessa!) and we roll from the parking lot of the Deering Estate Vistior's Center.
A great Family Bike Ride - part of Palmetto Bay's Earth Week 2017.  (yes, I was late - coming from troop 457's Eagle Scout Court of Honor, but I did my best to race and catch up with the ride in progress.)  I took the embedded video and 29 of the 30 photographs posted below. Can you find yourself, family or friends in any of the pics?  If not, I hope to see you at our next ride. (Please take the time to view prior blog posts, photos and videos by clicking the "Bicycling" Label - labels posted in the right side column) 
Just a few of the many Palmetto Bay bike events are listed above. Have fun during Florida Bike Week. And don't forge,; April is National Bike Week.
