Bike Miami Days


Miami is committed to becoming a Bicycle Friendly City by 2012. The advancement of bicycle routes and facilities will create a full array of accommodations for cyclists allowing cycling to be an easy alternative to automobile use or for recreational enjoyment of our city. Miami will be a safe place to ride a bicycle creating a more livable and vibrant City for residents and tourists.




Bicycle Pedestrian Mobility Plan

The City of Miami has embarked on a bicycle pedestrian mobility plan for the Overtown and Wynwood areas. These central urban neighborhoods have numerous mobility needs to serve the existing residents, business owners, and visitors who come to see the beautiful mural walls, historic Overtown, and diverse museums and shops. In addition, the area is attracting many new residents who want to enjoy an urban lifestyle where walking, bicycling, and convenient access to public transportation are the most viable forms of transportation.

We want to hear from you! The City is engaging the residents, merchants, and visitors of the Overtown and Wynwood areas to provide ideas and input to the bicycle and pedestrian mobility plan. All ideas and comments are welcome. A draft needs plan map has been prepared to start the conversation, which will be revised to include comments and ideas that we receive. The link below provides access to an online survey where you can provide input, which will be included in the analysis and recorded in the plan. In addition, there will be a public meeting at Williams Park (1717 NW 5th Avenue) on Thursday, September 12, at 5:00 PM.

Take the survey now!


What is BIKE305?

BIKE305 is a fun, healthy way to explore experience and connect with Miami-Dade County and its surrounding communities. Our county's level terrain and fabulous weather make it the ideal place to leave the car behind and make true connections with friends and neighbors as you bike, walk, run or skate through beautiful, scenic greenways and trails. It's a great way to stay active and healthy and discover the people, places and things that remind us why we love to live and play in South Florida.

The BIKE305 initiative kicks-off in March 2013. This year's featured trail passes through Miami-Dade County, City of Miami, Village of Key Biscayne, City of Coral Gables, Village of Pinecrest, Village of Palmetto Bay, and Town of Cutler Bay. The bike trails are more commonly known as Rickenbacker, Commodore, Old Cutler, and Biscayne.

Check out the Bike305 web page for more info. Let's get out there and BIKE305!
