Key Biscayne Memorial Ride



This is a very special ride dedicated to Christophe Le Canne, the 44-year-old cyclist and family man who was struck and killed by a motorist on Sunday morning.

All cyclists are to meet directly across the street from the Mast Academy School, along the beach access road. (Same meet up location as the '09 Ride Of Silence)

Sunday, January 24th, 2010
9:00am

*The Miami Seaquarium has invited us to use their parking lot as a staging area for the 9am ride. They ask participants to use the main Marquee entrance to enter the parking lot and park as close to the causeway as possible.

Mast Academy / Rickenbacker Causeway
Key Biscayne, FL 33149

Get directions here.

We will be stopping at the Bear Cut Bridge to pay tribute to the fallen cyclist. It would be very nice if flowers were brought by all. After the memorial we will ride into the Village of Key Biscayne and make a u-turn just before Bill Baggs State Park .

This ride is for everyone. Cyclists, pedestrians, roller skaters, etc. Anyone who uses the Rickenbacker Causeway for recreational purposes is encouraged to come. All are welcome.

Our condolences to the family & friends of Christophe Le Canne.

  3. We All Have "Skin in the Game" and that is why we all must feel the pain of our fallen fellow biker. It is that thing that makes us tic and makes get back on after a fall. It is a certain courage that allays the fears of relatives and friends who say "isn't that dangerous"? You have to admit that this is a "could a been me" accident. St Christopher (patron saint of travelers) could not help his own namesake. Damn the drunken bastard!

  4. I'll be there to support this ride.

    This story appalls me - typical rich kid Venezuelan who is an 'aspiring musician', living in Key Biscayne, thinks he owns the world & plows over an innocent cyclist. He and his entire family should be deported. And they should NEVER let them back in this country.

  5. Too bad this is the second Memorial I will attend within just 2 months.
    The first being The Memorial to Rodolfo Rojo along Biscayne Blvd.
    The ghost bike reminds me of him everytime I pass by there.
    I know people look at it and if for only one second they think about the life that was lost, I hope they become more aware that cyclists are out there and must be respected.

    SHARE THE ROAD IS THE MESSAGE!!!!!!!
    Thanks to the Miami Seaquarium for the parking area. It will really be handy.
