MP2E goes live, Ride of Silence, M-Path after dark?

We're up and running, er, riding. In the coming days and weeks this blog will be fine-tuned and updated to become a valuable resource for cyclists - and anyone else - who use the M-Path. Yep, it's a blog about a path. But, in my opinion, it is an important path. Our hope is to generate enough awareness that this utility path is actually one the best-established and bicycle-friendly routes in Miami-Dade County.

It certainly has its share of problems, however. With enough effort we believe it can be improved to become a great example of why Miami-Dade should embrace bicycles as a mode of transportation.

Side note - tonight is the Ride of Silence on Key Biscayne. It is a slow, silent 12-mile ride in honor of all cyclists who have been injured or killed by motorists. The ride is going in conjunction with many others throughout the nation. I will be there, and hopefully will grab a pic or two to share. Then it's off to the M-Path for the evening ride home. I've yet to ride the M-Path in the dark and it should be interesting.
