Joe's 40th birthday celebration was on Saturday. It was a warm, jovial gathering of the usual crowd. Jeff especially liked the bean dip and everyone was startled by the cream cheese swimming in a green gelatinous substance. Happy Birthday Joe!

As some of you may remember from my holiday ride reports, the Rickenbacker Causeway is really the only place to ride in Miami (aside from the Everglades). Miami is a car dominated city, with little respect or concern for pedestrians and cyclists. In fact, according to the Dangerous by Design report, Miami is the 3rd most dangerous city in the US for pedestrians. And so it is especially disturbing that this man was killed while riding in a bike lane on one of the only stretches of road that is remotely safe for cyclists. Perhaps if speed limits were more diligently enforced, Bertonatti would have been stopped before the fatal crash. The Miami cycling community pulls together as they grieve the loss of a fellow cyclist.

If this group disturbs you as much as it does me, you can file a report by clicking on the link at the bottom left hand corner of the page.
Hmmm ....I just happened to notice that one of the fans on this page was wearing a Dirt Rag jersey . He seems to be a fairly well known cyclist in Pittsburgh. I don't understand the logic behind this man's association with such a group. Maybe he's a double agent?

Jimbo's Shrimp Shack has been condemned and Virginia Key loses a piece of Miami history:
Cyclists now have their own lane going through the toll booth on the Rickenbacker Causeway! Free of charge!
Sounds like there are plans for single track on Virginia Key:
Looking forward to stopping at Love's on the way home.
