MARCH 2012 - Bicycle Month
We are already in the middle of March and Spring is just around the corner. As usual the weather is perfect for riding in South Florida, so I think now is a good time to start preventative practices for all riders - motorcyclist and bicyclist. The Sun Sentinel featured an article on Bicycle month with a host of activities that will be held at the Brian Piccolo park. See excerpt of article below.
Cities across Broward will host cycling events as Bicycle Month 2012 continues throughout March.
Originally just a week, the event was expanded to a full month in 2008. With more than 60 events at county and city parks, Bicycle Month promotes recreational cycling and safety, said Michael Mills, a spokesman for Broward County Parks and Recreation.
The month includes a mix of bicycle-related activities, ranging from safety rodeos to racing. Mills said some county parks are adding bicycle events to take advantage of their venues, including nature trail bike hikes. Some Bicycle Month events also coincide with regularly scheduled activities, such as the BMX nights at Brian Piccolo Park in Cooper City.
Motorcyclist and bicyclist fall easy prey to injury as they are on the roads daily sharing with drivers who fail to be considerate of them. Motor bike riders and cyclists should also be on the guard and always take the extra time and effort to make sure that their safety is first and foremost on the road.
