According to organizer Danny Ruiz, the motivation to start the community ride was one of hope: After September 11th, the morale in our city was very low. The streets were empty. The ride created a distraction for people and reminded them what a beautiful place Miami Beach is. The cycling excursion is about 13 miles long with a pit stop halfway for bikers to cool down, catch their breath, and rehydrate. The free community ride is held every second Saturday of the month and departs at 9 a.m. from Miami Beach Bicycle Center.
