How about biking through the Redland and ending with a freshly prepared lunch? The Green Mobility Network is holding its Redland Ramble bike ride on Saturday, January 29. It's more fun than you think and a nice escape from Miami.
The group, which "promotes cycling, running and walking for transportation, leisure and fitness," organized a similar ride in Homestead last year but this year's picnic lunch is new.
"Last year we had a variety of stops that included food," said John Hopkins, one of the Green Mobility Network's founders. "This time we wanted to highlight organic foods."
Stops during the 14-mile leisurely bike ride include Bee Heaven Farm, Redland Herb Farm and Andre's Fish Farm, where bikers who choose the lunch option will enjoy a chicken or fish (whole tilapia) lunch, local salad and local fruit juices.
