It's Miami Art Week (Nov 29 - Dec 4) and Art Basel, so expect heavy traffic in Miami Beach, Wynwood, Midtown, and the Design District for the next few days. Parking will also be a nightmare so it should come as no surprise that bicycling will be the quickest & most convenient way to get around our Magic City.
We encourage you not to drive. Avoid gridlock and parking woes by riding your bicycle, but please do so safely.. #bikebasel
We've included a few basic tips below for those planning on riding to Miami Art Week/Art Basel events and/or any of the satellite fairs, and parties.
