League blesses Tropical Cyclocross

Andy Clarke, president of the League of American Bicyclists, spent much of Sunday at Tropical Cyclocross, promoting League membership and the newly revised book Smart Cycling. The event and a picnic lunch for League members were sponsored by Mack Cycle & Fitness, whose owner, Mary Jane Mark, is at right.  Others here are, from left, Kathryn Moore of the South Florida Bike Coalition, Clarke, and John Hopkins of Green Mobility Network.

Much of the organizing and promotion was handled by Dario Perez of Miami Velo Racing.  An impressive feat, indeed! The day's events were a lot of fun, with spirited competition in several age classes.  It all kicked off with a 5K run called Tropi-Trot, an excellent overture to a glorious Florida winter morning in one of our most beautiful spots, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens.
