A large standing room only crowd of 80 100 people gathered tonight at Jose Marti Park for the city’s first Bicycle Summit.  While it certainly was great to see so many familiar faces in the crowd — many of who have had a critical role in pushing Miami to become more bicycle friendly —  it was even more heartening to see dozens of new faces participating.

After all of the presentations and neccessary speeches, attendees were able to track routes, danger areas, and opportunities for increased bicycle parking by covering maps with notes, dots, and hand-drawn routes. Thanks to all who participated and thanks  to Commissioner Joe Sanchez and Suzanna Valdez of the Mayor’s office for their great support.  We look forward to showing you detailed plan proposals in August at the second summit. More details to come on that in the coming weeks.
