A big thanks to everyone who has given us feedback in the first week of our project. As you can see, we're working on organizing stuff and gathering data to make this as user-friendly as possible. We love suggestions or comments in general, so feel free to let us know what is on your mind.

If you haven't done so already, we urge you to review the M-Path Master Plan (yes, there actually is one!) drafted in 2007. It provides some good insight in regards to many issues cyclists and pedestrians deal with, including:

• Trail user safety
• Missing trail segments
• Lack of trail continuity and connectivity
• Deteriorating pavement conditions
• Poor visibility
• Encroachment of the trail
• Substandard design
• Limited signage
• Trail identity

The report can be downloaded here (.pdf):

Look for a brief review in the coming days.

There are many meetings, plans, and events scheduled for the near future that could impact the M-Path and the overall state of bicycle-friendly infrastructure in Miami-Dade County. Now is certainly an exciting time to get involved and we hope that you stick with us.

So stay tuned - unlike the homeless guy I saw sprawled out in the middle of the M-Path today near 57th Ave, we're not going to sleep on this one!
