In the spirit of Dr. King, Miami Gardens Vice Mayor Reggie Leon, who helped organize the event, said, “We knew there were some relationships that needed to be built with law enforcement. So, by breaking the cycle and Miami-Dade County, we came together and unified about 15 different municipalities throughout the county and we formed a bike ride to strengthen our bond. That’s why we are here today.”MORE NEWS: Coral Gables resident says city's automatic license plate recognition cameras are a constitutional violation
