Early Saturday morning, we had a special bike event in town. The D. Wade CommUNITY Bike Ride took place, hosted by former Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and his wife, actress Gabrielle Union.
Hundreds turned out for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)’s event, partnered with City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and our district Commissioner Ken Russell (I saw Ken, riding his bike, didn’t see the mayor).
It was a beautiful morning for the event. Sunny and pretty right on the water. “It’s great to get kids outdoors interacting with positive role models,” said Commissioner Ken Russell. “I can’t wait to ride through Coconut Grove with Dwyane Wade.”
The ride started at about 8 am and went for about 6 to 7 miles around Center and South Grove. There were events at Regatta Park and outside City Hall before and after the ride.
It was one of those days where the whole town came out and everyone knew everyone else.
