Mountain bike trails cut from Virginia Key plan

A new version of the Virginia Key Master Plan is up for review this evening by the Miami Waterfront Advisory Board. The mountain bike trails long proposed for the spoil bank north of the sewer plant were omitted from the latest draft prepared by the planning firm EDSA. The plan asserts that it includes an additional four miles of meandering bike-pedestrian paths, but I haven't spotted them in the document.

The waterfront board meets at 6:30 p.m. at Miami City Hall. Its recommendation is supposed to go to the City Commission on Thursday -- the same meeting as the Miami Bicycle Master Plan and the proposed bicycle parking ordinance. Thursday is shaping up as a big day for cyclists.
