By going out there and riding, we present ourselves and show the city and county that a proper bicycling infrastructure is an important part of Miami-Dade's future. By attending public meetings and participating in local advocacy organizations, we further assert our cause.
I do not work for any city/county/state/federal government. I simply realized I could either (A) ride my bike and be bitter, (B) ride my bike and be complacent, or (C) ride my bike and be proactive. Everyone who rides in Miami has a choice.
