According to several reports from those who spoke to the construction workers this week, the Venetian Causeway will  actually be closed to thru traffic from today until May 31st. In response, there will be a pre Loose Canons advocacy ride tonight at 7:00 pm over the MacArthur Causeway. If interested meet up at Government Center between 6:30pm and 7:00pm to ride safely and in solidarity with other riders. Rydel over Miami Bike Scene has all the details.

Please join us and give a big  sarcastic thank you to the County for the lack of response and foresight in working with FDOT to temporarily improve the MacArthur for bicyclists and pedestrians this month. In all seriousness, let’s hope no one get hurt.
