Curds ‘n’ waves at Cabot ride sendoff

Cabot team and touring cyclists in MiamiA few intrepid bicylists pedaled out from Miami’s Bicentennial Park on Saturday to start the Cabot Community Tour, a 2,300-mile journey up the East Coast Greenway to Portland, Me. In this pre-ride photo by Suzanne Kores, the long-distance riders are in white jerseys. Cabot, the Vermont farmers’ cheese cooperative, held a little fair for them on the edge of the Miami Race Village, part of the hoopla attending the Volvo Ocean Race stopover here. Special treat, tasting the fresh cheese curds, precursor to Cabot’s popular cheddar. Next door at the Green Mobility Network tent, we chatted up visitors about our advocacy work, especially the recently-launched SafeStreetsMiami campaign. And we parked a few bicycles, too. Thanks to all who stopped by!
