We may soon have a ciclovía event in the Fort Lauderdale area, closing down some streets on a Sunday to fill them with people bicycling and walking. Even if you didn’t make it to the initial planning session last month, it’s not too late to get involved in making an event like this happen. The discussion continues tonight at the Broward County Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) meeting, which starts at 6:30 PM in the Broward County Government Center in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The BPAC meetings are always open to the public and happen the second Wednesday of every month, same time, same place.
A big thanks goes out to Katherine Moore for a great presentation at the September BPAC that got everyone enthused and ready to go! With your help, perhaps we can come close to what she accomplished by starting Bike Miami Days.
Two men were struck and killed while walking on Sea Breeze Boulevard late last night by what the Miami Herald reports as a fatal two-car drag race. The perpetrators instantly fled the scene and ditched one of the cars, a white Porsche, by the freeway. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact traffic homicide Investigator Sandra Knutten at 954-828-5460 or Broward Crime Stoppers on 954-493-8477.
