Bike Miami Days Celebrates Bicycle Action Month this Saturday

Walk, Bike, Skate... Bike Miami Days returns this Saturday. From 9:00 to 3:00, the streets of Downtown Miami will close to cars and open to thousands of locals to explore in a new way.
Bike Miami Days is a movement here in the City of Miami and people around the country are taking notice. As the first city in the United States to host monthly cyclovias, Miami is gaining recognition and inspiring cities like San Francisco and others to follow our model. More importantly, Bike Miami Days gives voice to people across South Florida who are thinking about streets in a new way, who are answering the President's call to become more involved in their communities and who are remembering how fun and easy it is to enjoy Miami without a car. It is a completely free and family-friendly opportunity to explore our city in a safe and relaxed way.
There will be a public rally, live music and improv, lots of children's activities, a green art showcase, yoga and bicycle safety classes and more. For information about special events, workshops, free bike rentals and more going on at Bike Miami, please visit the blog here. You can also view a map of the route at
