John was born in Miami and has lived in Coral Gables for 20 years. He's the proud owner of a 1958 Schwinn Corvette which he has owned for about 10 years. He rides weekly, around town, when he's not traveling with his wife. When asked why he rides, he says "it's a great place to ride with a nice tree canopy for sun protection, beautiful homes and landscaping, and now more bike lanes". When asked what the City could do better, he suggested more enforcement and education for motorists. He says he has had some close calls. In case you are wondering, John is 76. What's your excuse?
We look forward to more rides with John and we will work on getting his lovely wife to join us.
