"Friends of the Ludlam Trail will host a Town Hall meeting on Wednesday, November 12 at South Miami Senior High School, in order to provide the community a platform to voice their views about the current FECI proposal. The Friends of the Ludlam Trail will provide their vision for the park and trail, and FECI will have an opportunity to answer questions directly from the audience and provide an update regarding the latest changes to their application.

Miami-Dade County is being asked to change the land use designation of the Ludlam Trail to allow up to 2,600 apartments, single family homes and commercial units and a bike trail. Friends of the Ludlam Trail opposes the current proposal, but believes there is a way to balance FECI’s interests with a world class trail and park. Join us at the Town Hall meeting if you believe there is a way to balance private interests with public good!

• Learn about FOLT’s vision to create an WORLD CLASS Linear Park
• Learn more about Flagler’s proposal
• Sign our petition
• Hear the opinions and concerns of your neighbors
• Learn from local experts who believe an iconic park is possible
• Make your voice heard!

Friends of the Ludlam Trail remains opposed to the CDMP amendment application, but is dedicated to ushering a fair and transparent public process that balances neighborhood interests, with FECI's bottom line. Commissioner's Sosa and Suarez are invited, and the event will be moderated by South Miami Mayor Phillip Stoddard."

Miami Critical Mass Halloween Photos & Video

Check out these great photos and a video from the Halloween costume ride which traversed through Downtown Miami, Little Havana, West Flagler, Grapeland Heights, Allapattah, and Wynwood.  The City of Miami bicycle patrol joined the ride once again and while things went mostly well, we wish to remind everyone that there is still a lot of room for improvement amongst riders. Most notably when it pertains to riders illegally riding over the solid double yellow line and going against oncoming traffic. Also, there are still some riders with no lights on their bicycles and those who allow large gaps to form around them, let's try to keep it one unit. For more tips go here.

Check out over 100 photos from the October '14 Miami Critical Mass ride captured by event photographer Arturo P.

Red Bull Mini Drome Miami

Saturday, November 8th

MANA Wynwood
318 NW 23rd Street
Miami, FL 33127

In front of a cheering audience, 64 riders will compete in head-to-head knockout brackets on the world's smallest velodrome until a winner is crowned! Attendance is free and spectators of all ages are welcome to attend. This event will coincide with Wynwood's Second Saturday Art Walk so there will also be food trucks there.

"Fixed-gear riders from across the South will take their talent to the track in a test of mental stamina, technical precision and raw strength at Red Bull Mini Drome in Miami on November 8. From its original debut in New Zealand and its roots across the pond, Red Bull Mini Drome will come back for another lap in the states with a stop at Mana Wynwood—a prominent hub for innovation in the Wynwood Arts District.

For starters, a fixed-gear (more affectionately known as a fixie) is a bicycle in its purest, simplest form-- no gears and sometimes no brakes. Often considered the ultimate marriage between man and machine, a sub-twenty-pound piece of machinery is the only thing separating your body from the hard, unforgiving ground below.

At Red Bull Mini Drome, skill, speed, balance, and braves are brought together on this steep, shrunken down version of the traditional velodrome. With track speeds exceeding 30mph and course measurements of 46 ft. x 24 ft. and 8 ft. high at the end banking, it is sure to be one of the most challenging and treacherous thrill rides to hit the fixed-gear scene. Competitors will need to pedal hard and watch the ledge if they want to take home the winning title."
