BIKE VALET Coming to Coconut Grove Arts Festival

GMNCGAFGreen Mobility Network is excited to be partnering with Coconut Grove Arts Festival to provide our hugely popular bike valet.  Our bike valet station will be located near the festival’s main entrance on McFarlane Rd.  Patrons are encouraged to avoid parking hassles and fees and instead take their bikes to the festival. If coming by transit, make sure to get off at the Coconut Grove metrorail station and head down 27th avenue (which just got a brand new bike lane!). Coconut Grove is a beautiful City of Miami neighborhood with a bike culture that continues to grow.  We are proud to aiding the festival in providing safe and effective parking solutions.

If you are interested in volunteering in bike valet, please email info@greenmobilitynetwork.org.

Commodore Trail upgrade begins

Bridge site on the Coral Gables WaterwayImprovements are underway at two points along the Commodore Trail, one of Miami’s most popular corridors for runners. The trail, extending from Cartagena Circle in Coral Gables to Wainwright Park in Miami, also has many walkers and some slower bicyclists who avoid the busy roads through Coconut Grove. A big step up for the Commodore will be the new bike and pedestrian bridge across the Coral Gables Waterway. You can see the site preparation, above, just east of LeJeune Road. The bridge is being fabricated offsite for delivery in late July. Closer to downtown, masons are improving the walkway along Bayshore Drive near Aviation Avenue. This is a Miami-Dade public works project but also required Miami and Coral Gables approval.
