How do I get in contact with the person who has the ability to edit the information written here? The credit was given to the Miami bike scene, and although a ton of support was given from the Miami bike scene for this event, they were not the ones who created, nor coordinated it. I actually created and coordinated it (I work for America's Backyard), and the Fort Lauderdale bike scene really put a lot of hard work into helping make it all happen, as well as did Irena of "The Promise Foundation" (a non-profit organization that helps teach kids street safety, collects donated bikes to donate to children in need, and helps teach children with autism and children with MS how to ride bikes). Mike Spinner was also a huge sponsor, as he allowed for his ramp to brought to the event by his riding buddy Joe Taberna, who brought along all the kids that ride with Taberna and Spinner on the ramp to provide entertainment with their kick ass skills.
