March 21st: Upcoming walking/running/biking events

It's Monday morning and the weather is perfect in SWFL. Time to get some great running and riding events in before the dog days of summer arrive. The Cape Coral Critical Mass ride is Friday night, March 25; the Fort Myers ride rolls out the Friday after that (BOTH with a later start time at 8 p.m. after a gathering time of 7:15 p.m.); both are family-friendly slow rolls just perfect for this time of year.
