County Launching Bike Month

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and six municipal mayors are launching a series of bicycle events they call Bike305 Month.  Every weekend in March there are to be events along the bike trail between Key Biscayne and Black Point Marina — a route that includes the Commodore Trail, the Old Cutler Trail, and the Biscayne Trail. A new website includes county bike facilities and bike-friendly events planned for March and beyond.

The month gets an official endorsement with a County Commission resolution to be acted on Tuesday, March 5. If you can make it downtown that day at 9 a.m., please visit the 2nd floor of County Hall, 111 NW 1st St., to show support for Bike305 Month.  In recent years the county has embraced March as Florida Bike Month, but this time the mayor’s office and the Department of Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces took the lead to organize a rich calendar of local events.
