On Saturday, March 24, 2012, Dr. Lawrence Feldman, School Board Vice-Chair, District 9, and Mayor Cindy Lerner of the Village of Pinecrest, hosted the Regions Bank 3rd Annual Pinecrest Bike Day. The event was held to encourage family bicycling and to provide the community with an opportunity to come together and experience the joy and healthy benefits of bicycling.
Pinecrest Bike Day featured an informational fair with a bike helmet giveaway sponsored by Miami Children’s and Kohl’s. Other agencies and community organizations were also on hand to inform, educate, and entertain all the attendees. The bicycle course included three (3) different routes, covering 2, 3, and 4 miles, for all skill levels. The event also hosted a number of Miami’s famous Food Trucks.
The Miami-Dade Schools Police Department and the Village of Pinecrest Police Department provided law enforcement support for the event by escorting the riders along their routes and providing traffic control throughout the ride to make it a safe event for all.
