It was cold and windy and still there was a great turnout at last nights Loose Cannons race. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves trying out the rollers @ Keirin Cycles & the free Red Stripe beer was much appreciated at PS14. Thanks to all those involved in making this happen. Congrats to Ferny on the win.

January Critical Mass : Video

The January Miami Critical Mass ride went very well despite some afternoon showers and a rapid weather change which caused temperatures to drop into the low 50s. Approximately 45 cyclists showed up & joined in on the ride. We ventured through downtown, south on Biscayne Blvd and were briefly escorted by a City of Miami Police cruiser down Brickell Avenue. The officer instructed us to take only one lane and was being helpful with the ride, he mentioned Bike Miami to me and If I recall correctly had a bike rack on his vehicle. We exited Brickell, merged onto US1 and rode SW for a bit until we made a left on 27th ave and proceeded into Coconut Grove. Once at Cocowalk we rode west via Grand Ave & then north on Douglas Rd. The group then took Coral Way back towards Mary Brickell Village ultimately getting back to Government Center. Total distance travelled was 14.3 miles. Here's a link to the route.

This month's ride will be on February 27th.
