Congratulations to the Village of Pinecrest and Dr. Lawrence Feldman from Miami-Dade Public Schools for hosting the 8th annual Pinecrest Community Bike Day! The event began at 9am at the beautiful Pinecrest Gardens where riders were welcomed with a community fair complete with DJ, food trucks and a collection of sponsors and community organizations handing out plenty of free give-aways!
The event helped spread awareness toward the Village’s strive to become more bike and pedestrian friendly. All riders were provided free safety gear from local sponsors and were given a quick bike safety workshop by UM Bike Safe just before the group ride began. Green Mobility Network was proud to be in attendance and help spread news about existing neighborhood trails such as the South Dade Trail, Red Road Linear Park, Old Cutler Trail new incoming trail projects such the Snapper Creek and Ludlam Trail. Many thanks to the Village for inviting us to attend this wonderful community event!

Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado issued a proclamation today proclaiming March as Miami Bike Month. We don’t have to remind you how far we’ve come in Miami with regard to bicycle use and infrastructure. Since our inception, we have been intimately involved with the City of Miami, and are proud to be a part of the movement to make Miami a safe and convenient place to bike and walk. We know we have a long road ahead, but here is to continuing the work of making Miami a safe and convenient place to bike, walk and run!
