Where it’s happening: BikeMiami, Nov. 9

Bike MiamiLogoThe beauty of Bike Miami will be in the people who take part. This Nov. 9 festival in downtown Miami is no scripted event, with parades or pageantry played out on a stage. Instead, by declaring Flagler Street and Miami Avenue the domain of bicyclists and walkers for five hours, Miami Mayor Manny Diaz honors the quest for Complete Streets and a livable city.

Many hands will be at work to make this happen. Some downtown shops are opening that Sunday just for this event. Others plan special offers for BikeMiami attendees. Green Mobility is getting help for its bike valet from Key Club members coordinated by Gary Jopling, the club’s sponsor at South Miami High School. You can help, too. Select “contact” at the top of our homepage and drop me a note. It’s going to be fun, and I’ll appreciate your help.
