South Broward Wheelers has joined forces once again with Evan Butters in putting together this charity event in honor of his grandfather, Benjamin Goldman, who passed away from Alzheimers.
Why a cycling event?
Well, Evan's grandfather, Ben, was an avid cyclist for as long as he can remember. Even when he was 85 yrs old, he would still ride every day from his apartment in Hallandale and bike 18+ miles, until he realized he could no longer ride. Alzheimer took that from him. When he passed, he left Evan one of his bicycles which he still rides and on November 17th, Evan will be riding the 33 mile route in Ben's honor!
General Admission $35
Ride includes a grab bag with gifts from our sponsors to the first 100 Pre-Register riders.

This year, our goal is to raise enough money towards the purchase of a Zeiss PALM MicroBeam Laser Capture Microdissection System
Alzheimer Disease is due to the abnormal death of brain cells important for memory. In the past decade, we have made considerable progress towards understanding the importance of specific genes that play critical roles in the development of AD. The next step is to understand how those genes affect brain cells, leading to the disease. One of the ways is to compare differences between brains from healthy older individuals with those from AD patients. However, the brain is composed of many different types of cells each of which makes a different contribution to AD.
The PALM MicroBeam Laser Capture Microdissection System is a special microscope that has a laser to isolate and then cut out individual brain cells. Identifying the specific type of cells that are affected by the genes leading to AD will allow for the development of drugs to treat and prevent AD to be targeted at the specific cellular source of the disease.

It's great to be SBW!
This past Saturday, at our Big Event in Markham Park, we had a special guest; Captain Kevin Butler of the Weston BSO.
We spoke about the relationship of bicycles in a busy city and how Weston has been proactive to promote safe cycling. Here are a few take-a-ways from our talk:
Weston Public Works and BSO have made it a priority to keep our many miles of marked bike lanes clear of debris.
Though he does not like it, short term parking during school drop off and pick up in bike lanes cannot be prevented. We must use care when passing.
Electric Scooters will soon be sharing our bike lanes. Another obstacle for cyclist to be concerned with.
All bicycle accidents that are reported are studied and documented. It had been proven that most bicycle - automobile accidents happened at intersections.
State Rd-84 has been proven to be the most dangerous road for cyclist in the area with, as we all very well know, many fatalities. Extra care must be taken, especially around exit ramps with traffic coming off of I-595. Planning is underway for new bike lanes on St-Rd 84 with some form of barrier.
The most complaints from motorist against cyclist is on narrow South Post Road. When the cyclist are not in the bike lane, traffic backs up and drivers get irritated, specially
during rush hours when drivers are trying to get to work or get home from long day at work.
Captain Butler was thankful for the opportunity to meet with us and intends to maintain a strong relationship with SBW.
