The event helped spread awareness toward the Village’s strive to become more bike and pedestrian friendly.  All riders were provided free safety gear from local sponsors and were given a quick bike safety workshop by UM Bike Safe just before the group ride began.  Green Mobility Network was proud to be in attendance and help spread news about existing neighborhood trails such as the South Dade Trail, Red Road Linear Park, Old Cutler Trail new incoming trail projects such the Snapper Creek and Ludlam Trail. Many thanks to the Village for inviting us to attend this wonderful community event!
