Everglades Bicycle Club loses a longtime stalwart
Roland Mazzotti, longtime active member in the Everglades Bicycle Club, collapsed and died Sunday afternoon while biking up the big bridge on the Rickenbacker Causeway. A friend had ridden ahead and, when he didn't appear, turned back to find a rescue crew busy at his side. Roland was a former president of the club and, if I'm not mistaken, was one of the founders, in 1976. The club's John Voss reports on Facebook that the funeral will be held Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at Epiphany Catholic Church, 8081 SW 54th Court, Miami.
