Behold the Top 10 Most Dangerous Spots to Bike in Miami

This blog post is dedicated to the snot-nosed raver kid who almost killed me Saturday night. I was the redhead on the bike. You were in an Escalade, thumping that bad techno song from the '90s. I'm pretty sure you were even sporting a sideways visor. Maybe you were driving to a theme party called "Dress up Like a Giant Cliché." Probably.

Remember how you almost manslaughtered me? God, that was so much fun.

Well, it got me thinking. Where is a biker most likely to run into a guy like you? Turns out there's a study. Here are the "top-ranked bicycle crash hotspots," according to the county's most recent data. (Check out the report here.)
