Statistics are out regarding being on two wheels and or walking the streets of Key West, Fl. While I will agree that educating the public is a must, as a society we have to want to do better. Just remember, that it is not only the pedestrians and cyclists who need to do better, but all who share the road.
I am participating in the zMotion KID Inlet Challenge presented by Zimmerman Adverstising on December 4th, 2011 with several other members of the Mile Zero Hereos to benefit Kids In Distress.
Any and all financial support would be greatly appreciated and go a long way in helping the 6,200 children and families that receive services from Kids In Distress. Last year it cost $200,000 to just feed the thousands they help every year.
Kids In Distress is a leading force and authority in the treatment of abused children and a premier agency advocating for the preservation of the family and the development of children’s services.

Thank you for your consideration.
Completed my fourth SMART Ride last weekend, SMART Ride 8. What a great event, benefiting AIDS agencies throughout the State of Florida. Year to date, SMART Ride 8 has raised over $675,000 and a little under $3 million in 8 years. All of which has been donated to the participating agencies.
I was proud to ride with and be a member of Team Mile Zero Hereos. Our recently formed team raised over $30,000 alone through car washes, raffles, 50/50’s, silent auctions and social cocktail hours. A huge THANK YOU to Nancy from Salsa Loca in Key West for sponsoring our team jerseys and supporting us during the event. For more information, make sure to check out the SMART Ride. I can’t wait for next year’s ride! Until then check back to see what other great rides myself and the Mile Zero Hereos (website coming) will be participating in. Next up…Kids In Distress Inlet Challenge.
Several weeks ago on a Sunday morning group ride I met Mishell and Tanya at Baby’s Coffee. They were cycling to Key West from the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale region on a sister bonding ride, stopping at sites throughout the Florida Keys during the journey. Unfortunately a vicious, late winter cold front cut a portoin of their coastal Florida trip down, but the sun and blue skies that has made the Florida Keys famous, made itself available for their leg on the FKOHT.
After our brief encounter was over and about a dozen of us “locals” provided them with the most direct route to the Southernmost Point, they were on their way. As you can tell from the photo below, I am happy to report they made it to Key West safely. Until next time.
