The Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride Twenty-Eleven (SMART) Ride
Register today and join hundreds of others in the fight against AIDS.
2 days, 165 miles, from Miami to Key West. 100% to Charity.
Help our friend and fellow cyclist Larry Mailloux raise money for AIDs/HIV services in Florida by donating under his rider number 267. Larry is riding for the second year in SMART Ride, the southern most charity bike ride that raises money for HIV/AIDs. Unlike many charity rides 100% of the proceeds go directly to a select number of local charities. Last year he kicked ass for 165 miles, from Miami to Key West, on a mountain bike but this year he has graduated to his newly recovered fixie (it was stolen and then found on Craig's list by a loyal friend). Thanks in advance for supported a fellow Miami rider!
To pledge go to this link and enter his last name and rider number (267)

Miami Critical Mass will be hosting a Halloween themed ride on Friday, October 28th!
Fort Lauderdale Critical Mass will also be hosting a ride on the same day.
You cannot attend both events due to the rides happening simultaneously but I recommend you attend any one of them since both are sure to be equally great.
Here's a short video of last month's Fort Lauderdale Critical Mass ride courtesy of Sean Ferguson.

Virginia Key MTB North Point Trails
"Mack Cycle’s MTB Rad Race is very similar to a type of mountain bike racing called 4x or mountain cross. 4 or more racers start the race together and compete on a wide, short and fast track. The race track more closely resembles moto-cross or BMX. The kickass track is designed for speed with jumps, banked turns and big drops! Winners of each heat qualify for the finals, held on the same day.
Racers must compete in all three races to qualify for the cash prize championship! The point based system will be explained by “Frenchie” at the Ocober 30 Rad Race! Riders must compete on mountain bikes. No BMX or hybrids allowed.
First heat starts at 8AM sharp. Top finishers of each heat advance to the next round. Spectators are welcomed. Riders are welcomed to bring 10×10 pop-up tents. There are no bathrooms, water or food at the location, so come prepared!"
