Virginia Key Master Plan to be previewed

Mountain bikers are keenly interested in how the City of Miami uses its land on Virginia Key, the little island one crosses between Key Biscayne and the mainland. The cyclists and at times the planners have advocated building mountain bike trails on the north edge of the key, where silt was dumped when the Port of Miami was dredged.

A proposed master plan for Virginia Key will get a public preview tonight from 6 to 8 o'clock at the Museum of Science, 3280 S. Miami Ave. Hundreds of local cyclists will be not far away at that time, taking part in the Ride of Silence on Crandon Boulevard.

I really hope so. Oleta and Markham are too far for us M. bikers that live in south Miami. Amelia is ok for an easy workout, but poorly maintained during the summer in my opinion. This will certanly help promote a great sport in Miami.

I'd not heard of this plan. It'd be great to have somewhere to ride my mountain bike, Oleta is a bit too far away.

I'll keep an eye out to see how it develops.
