Cyclists flooded the Rickenbacker Causeway this past Sunday for a memorial ride in honor of Christophe Le Canne, the 44-year-old biker killed in a horrific hit-and-run accident last weekend.
As you can see in the video -- shot by a Riptide reader -- hundreds rode in the memorial, which began outside Mast Academy and circled past the spot on Bear Cut Bridge where Le Canne died.
Police say Carlos Bertonatti, a 28-year-old aspiring musician who lived in his parents' posh Key Biscayne digs, was drunk when he slammed into Le Canne just after 8 a.m.
Bertonatti is accused of speeding away with Le Canne's bike lodged under his front fender, leading police on a chase, and aggressively refusing a blood test after he was finally arrested.
Le Canne, who lived in South Miami, was an avid traveler -- and a hell of a photographer, based on the shots on his blog.

Bertonatti, meanwhile, is free on $100,000 bond and awaiting trail on charges of vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a fatality, DUI manslaughter, driving without a license, and resisting arrest.
