My family has been in the bike rally for years. In fact, in the beginning, our youngest daughter rode in a seat on the back of my bike. Davie has some of the nicest recreational trails in South Florida. The bike rally is a great time to get acquainted with them.
As predicted in the Farmer’s Almanac, the weather held up — although it looked like rain for a while.
