Saturday's Homestead ride called off
We learned late today that the Biscayne-Everglades Bicycle Festival, featuring supported rides of 42 miles and 62 miles this Saturday, has been called off because of low registration numbers. I thoroughly enjoyed riding this event last year, and salute Yvonne Knowles, Homestead Main Street, and their many volunteers for their efforts. Tom Burton advises that the festival's Greenway Fat Tire Ride will proceed as scheduled on Sunday, starting at 9 a.m. from Homestead Bayfront Park. There are details and a cue sheet you can download at http://www.greenmobilitynetwork.org/event/greenway-fat-tire-ride. Be aware, please, that the Sunday ride will be rough going -- not suited for road bikes at all.
