Hangin' with Harry

My friend Harry Gottlieb has started a new blog, it's about bicycling called, "Harry's Cycle Path."  No, not psychopath. Cycle Path.

Harry is a Grove activist but he is also a bicycle enthusiast. He knows a lot about the subject, he has marketed bike shops and new style bicycles, he is entrusted to try out new bicycles for his suggestions and reviews and he has helped to pass legislation in favor of bike safety. He is well known in the cycling community around Miami-Dade County.

Three years ago he began championing the improved safety of our drawbridges which were quite dangerous for cyclists. He lobbied with FDOT and MDC to install dedicated nonslip bike lanes over the cheese grater metal surfaces. Proof was gathered about the many injuries that cyclist received after numerous falls. FDOT and MDC eventually took action by fixing just about every drawbridge in South Florida. Hopefully the West Venetian Causeway Drawbridge will be addressed in October when funds are available. 

Harry has ridden over 200 miles some weeks! And so what better way to share his knowledge than with the Harry's Cycle Path blog?

Harry will share new products, stories on cycling adventures and even restaurants that are part of local bike routes.



Check it out. He's an interesting guy.
