Bike Miami is coming: Sunday, November 9th

As Mayor of the City of Miami, I am proud to announce a special event that I am hosting in Downtown Miami on Sunday, November 9th: Bike Miami.

From 10am to 3pm, the City of Miami will close East Flagler and the Downtown portion of South Miami Avenue to vehicular traffic so that pedestrians and bicyclists can explore the city in a new way.

Bike Miami is an opportunity for all of us to enjoy the natural beauty of Miami’s waterfront and the restoration of Downtown with family and friends. Walk along the BayWalk, ride your bike down South Miami Avenue, learn more about the city’s bicycle and pedestrian friendly initiatives at a special outdoor presentation at 11am.
Shops, restaurants and caf├ęs will be open and there will be a special free yoga class in the Park.

You are encouraged to take public transit to Bike Miami – bring your bicycle on the bus or Metrorail. There will be covered bike valet parking at Mary Brickell Village and outdoor bike parking between Bayfront Park and the Bayside Marketplace. Vehicle Parking will also be available at the Miami-Dade Cultural Center, Bayside, Mary Brickell Village and many other garages throughout the area.

Bike Miami is a community event that is open and free to everyone. I hope to see you there.
