Our treasurer and board member Tom Blazejack reports from Tallahassee:
"Had a good day at the Florida Bike Summit yesterday. Met with Reps. Robaina and Bush. Also met with staff of Lopez-Cantera, Steinberg and Bullard. Big announcement was reestablishment of the Bike/Ped Council [to advise the state Department of Transportation]. Robaina was instrumental in that and he wants to get movement on the Ludlam Trail."
The Ludlam Trail, you may recall, is proposed to reach from near Dadeland to the south side of Miami International Airport. It's been a dream of many cyclists for two decades to build this trail along an unused railroad right-of-way. Miami-Dade Parks & Recreation recently unveiled a beautiful conceptual design for the trail.
