Carlos Gimenez campaigns for 'bicycle vote'

Carlos Gimenez showed up unexpectedly Friday evening to the monthly critical mass bike ride that meets outside Miami-Dade County Hall.

Gimenez, dressed in a polo shirt and slacks, shook hands and posed for photos as he mingled through the crowd of hundreds of young hipster-types preparing to mount their bicycles. The bike ride takes place the last Friday of every month.

A former county commissioner considered an advocate for cycling, Gimenez told a Miami Herald in jest that he expects to get 90 percent of the "bicycle vote."
