On Saturday May 9th, Green Mobility joined Emerge Miami for their 2nd Saturday group ride that began at the Allapattah Metro station and ended at Ms. Cheezious. Not only was the route awesome, but the ride also served as a benefit for Green Mobility Network. Thank you Emerge, Ms. Cheezious and New Belgium Slow Ride’s Drink to Donate for supporting our organization. We would love to do it again!
Huge congrats to Green Mobility board member Eric Tullberg for being selected as a finalist in The Miami Foundation’s 2015 Public Space Challenge! His awesome idea involves installing a water fountain along the South Dade Trail (288 street) next to Modello Park. Best of luck Eric!
On May 9, bring your bike and come join the Emerge Miami folks for their Second Saturday ride. The ride will begin at the Allapattah Metrorail station at 10:00 am. The ride will wind through the streets of some areas of Miami you may have never seen before and then stop at Ms. Cheezious to enjoy great food and good times.
This ride is also an important fundraiser aimed to support Green Mobility Network. For every New Belgium Slow Ride purchased at Ms. Cheezious, 50 cents will be donated to Green Mobility through New Belgium’s “Drink To Donate” program, helping to fuel our year-round campaign to support biking, running and walking initiatives.
Green Mobility Network will have a free bike valet set up behind Ms. Cheezious to keep your bikes safe while you enjoy the food and fun!!
If you cannot make the start of the Emerge ride feel free to ride, walk or (if you must) drive over, if you are in the area and you can still take part in the festivities with fellow cyclists and others who want to support making Miami a more alternative transportation friendly city!!
In partnership with several County departments, Commissioner Juan Zapata has developed a West End Connectivity Master Plan to promote greenway connectivity and walkability to County parks, schools, libraries and business nodes in the area. These proposed improvements will connect with existing greenways and add approximately 15 miles of bike routes. Bravo to District 11 for making the West End a future destination for safe and scenic biking, walking and running!
