New role for Miami's ciclovía queen

Congratulations to the South Florida Bike Coalition and to Kathryn Moore, who is succeeding Jeffrey Lynne as the group's executive director.

Lynne, the trial lawyer who launched the coalition last summer, will be turning his energy toward national bicycle advocacy. He is best known to bicyclists as the man who woke up the Florida Department of Transportation as courtroom advocate for the Boca Raton Bicycle Club in the A1A bike-lane case. More recently, he's joined the board of the League of American Bicyclists. He'll stay involved with the coalition as president of the board of directors.

Moore, as a mayoral aide while Manny Diaz presided in Miami City Hall, carried the ball to launch and sustain several Bike Miami Days last year and the fall before. The assignment turned her into a bicyclist -- and a passionate one at that. Lately she's run the Miami office of the Street Plans Collaborative planning firm.
