Message From Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

March is Florida Bike Month! The health benefits of regular cycling include increased cardiovascular fitness, increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved joint mobility, and decreased stress levels. Bike month is not only about the health benefits of cycling but also recognizing bicycling as an alternative mode of transportation. The Broward MPO has invested millions of dollars to build out a safe, connected bike network for all residents, from the weekend cycling groups out for exercise and as a social activity to the thousands of children who ride their bikes to school every day. If you don’t take advantage of our beautiful March weather and participate in Bike Month, please be considerate of those who are. As drivers, we are responsible for keeping everyone on the roads safe and ensuring everyone gets to their final destination.
