The consensus amonst participants is that the July Miami Critical Mass ride went much smoother than in recent months, the presence and aid of both the City of Miami and Coral Gables police played a big part in this. The ride traversed through Little Havana, West Flagler, Coral Gables, Miracle Mile, Coral Way, Shenandoah, Riverside, and Downtown. The City of Miami bicycle patrol joined the ride, and a roadside LED sign was installed at Government Center alerting the public of the ride. While things went mostly well we wish to remind everyone that there is still 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.
