MIA/NYC Solidarity Ride is ON, this Sunday 2/7 at 2pm

Hey everyone,

New York is calling for a ride this Sunday, February 7th at 2pm, to show their solidarity with *us* and the Christophe LeCanne case. I think the best way to thank our New York brothers and sisters is to get on our bikes and go for a ride as well. It doesn't look like there are any other cycling events in Miami that day, so there should be no conflict.

If you think this is a good idea, head over to Miami Bike Scene and share your thoughts there. Let's get something moving and show New York our appreciation.

GREAT IDEA!

2:00PM Govt. Ctr. 111 N.W. 1st. St.--- the usual CM Friday meeting place.

We don't have to ride far or in any particular direction...

Just be there!

Can someone bring a video camera?

We can do a video where some of us can identify ourselves and express we appreciation for and solidarity with our NYC brethren.

Rather than add another thread, I've updated the title and here's all the information on this ride.

We'll be meeting at Government Center at 2pm, as suggested by Robert. The route will take us to Key Biscayne, using all available bike lanes, including South Miami Avenue and the Rickenbacker. We'll stop at Bear Cut Bridge and the entrance to the Crandon Marina, which are the spots where the last two fatalities occurred. (Christophe LeCanne and Omar Otaola in 2006.) We'll then turn around and make a stop at Virginia Beach to rest, hydrate, etc. and continue back to Government Center.

This is being coordinated at least in communication with Rydel, right?
He mentioned somewhere that there's a planned call with organizers from NYC at 2:10pm.

Yes. The links pointing to MBS are posted. I just want to make sure we cover all bases.
