On Saturday, August 16, a group of friends and supporters gathered for a "Cyclist Respect Rally" on the bike lane of 16th Street near the intersection with Jefferson Avenue in Miami Beach.

Along the street, they stood in a line between the car lane and the bike lane to create a human barrier where event coordinator Jessica Hunter was hit by a car earlier this month.

Ten days into their bike tour across Iceland supporting WJCT, the Shacter family had already ridden 255 miles with many more to go.

Depending on weather and distance between campsites, David, Melody, Jac, Zach and his girlfriend Rachelle, have averaged between 21 to 43 miles a day to complete their 800 mile trek.

But the family is doing more than just pedaling.

Zach Shacter and his girlfriend Rachelle celebrated Iceland’s National Day  in a memorable way, documenting it on their tumblr.

Hidden Gems: Hanna Park

Jun 17, 2013
Catherine Byerly's "Hidden Gems" is a new web-only series checking out some of the great places in Jacksonville you may not know exist.

Just a few miles north of better known beach locations is Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park. Slightly off the beaten path and worth the three dollars (cash only!) to get in, Hanna Park is more than just beach access. 

Hanna Park gives locals prime mountain biking, surfing and fishing access in a secluded 450-acre swath of northeast Florida wilderness.

Shacter Family

Bags and bikes packed and ready to go - the Shacter family is setting off to bike across Iceland to raise money for WJCT.

The family, David, Melody, Jac, Zach and his girlfriend Rachelle, will ride over 800 miles over the span of a month. 

Melody Shacter will be spending her 54th birthday on the trip. 

“I never dreamed I would spend it riding a bike and sleeping on the ground in a tent,” said Melody. “Having kids stretches you in ways you can never imagine!”
