Our first Summit in 2009 focused on educating legislators about the benefits of bicycling. For 2010, we need your input to define what cycling really is and how it can change Florida one rider at a time. Join us to take advantage of these changing times where more people are riding bikes. The time is now to show how powerful and influential we can be as a unified voice

Be a part of the solution to advance Florida as the best state to ride a bicycle.

    I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend the summit. I do hope that someone raises the issue of the unconnected bike/walkway situation along Rt. 41. Riding on the highway even though there is a marked berm is not safe at the legal speed of the motorists. Just connect the existing paths, a two for the price of one deal. Check the use of the path along the horse park. No one uses it because it is not connected to anything on either end.

  2. Robert,
    Thanks! I've shared your comments with both FBA and the Lee County MPO staff working on the countywide master plan. Darla
