1200 register for Gran Fondo Miami

There's a nice writeup in Friday's Miami Herald about Gran Fondo Colnago Miami, the Italian import bike ride that on Sunday will stretch out from Coral Gables to Florida City, then wind up with a big pasta meal at Miami City Hall. The Herald's Andres Viglucci, himself a cyclist of some passion, quotes Gran Fondo USA founder Matteo Gerevini:
“I know with the first edition, it’s always difficult to understand what it is. It’s something not done before in the United States. But we want the serious athletes who want to go fast and we want the people who just want to ride at their own speed, no pressure.”
To read more, see MiamiHerald.com. Here are the three published routes for the event. I'd use these maps with caution, though. Your own knowledge of the neighborhoods might come in handy.
