Miami Art Week: Tips & Advice #bikebasel


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.

  • Don't have a bicycle? Try CitiBike.
  • If you're riding at night, you should absolutely have a red rear light and a front headlight. They help motorists and pedestrians alike see you on the road, and are required by law.
  • Be wary of drunk drivers, jay walkers, and out-of-towners searching for events. Don't forget we live in Florida where more than likely the driver of the vehicle will flee the scene if they strike a cyclist and/or pedestrian. 
  • When riding, pass vehicles with caution! Most motorists in Miami do not use turn signals.
  • Don't forget to lock up your bike properly! There's no point in saving time by going on bike if you're going to be walking home sobbing sans steed. Use a high quality u-lock, do not use cable locks.
  • Avoid the railroad tracks on N. Miami Avenue and 19th Street. Cyclists are still being seriously injured at this railroad crossing. If you do ride your bicycle here, please make sure to use the "bike lane" and follow it to cross the tracks at a 90° angle. You can also take NW 1st Ave through Overtown as an alternative. 
  • Do not ride in the "door zone" and be alert of pedestrians jumping out of parked vehicles and/or opening doors when exiting their ride-hail.
  • The Venetian Causeway is temporarily open until December 11, use it!
  • Obey all bicycle laws.

Miami Critical Mass : Friday, November 25th


Friday, November 25th
6:30pm (ride starts at 7:15pm)

Government Center
150 NW First Street
Downtown Miami

The ride will be going through East Little Havana, Grapeland Heights, Allapattah, Brownsville, Liberty City, Wynwood, Overtown, and Downtown Miami. Total distance is approximately 16 miles.  Make sure you come prepared and read The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Bicycling.

All eyes appear to be on Miami Critical Mass and it’s time for participants to prove the opposition wrong. Everyone riding is solely responsible for their actions and should lead by example. If you see someone riding or behaving irresponsibly, then let them know it’s not acceptable. If you’re partaking in the ride, then it’s your duty to positively influence others. Ride safely and be courteous to everyone in the community, if you can’t do this then quite simply you are not welcomed. There’s no room for hostile, drunk, moronic individuals. There are a lot of great people on these rides, enjoying their city by bicycle for 1-2 hours on the last Friday of every month, and it’s rather unfortunate that a few bad apples can ruin this special occurrence for everyone else. To frustrated motorists, borrow a bicycle and try joining the ride sometime with some friends. You never know, you just may experience one of the most fun, free, and healthy social gatherings South Florida has to offer.


Bicycle Rules & Safety Tips

  • Stay in the right lane, and do not ride across middle line on the road into opposite travel lane
  • Yield to emergency vehicles.
  • No Headphones! While riding a bicycle it is illegal to wear a headset, headphone or other listening device, other than a hearing aid or instrument for the improvement of defective human hearing.
  • Safety Lights: Front & rear lights are required by law in the State of Florida. 
  • Kids under 16 years of age must wear helmets.
  • Do not ride on the sidewalk.
  • Passing: A passing cyclist is responsible for the safety of the cyclist that is being passed. When passing ring a bell and/or say "on your left".
  • Yield to pedestrians and buses.
  • No drinking of alcohol or illegal activity during ride.
  • Do not filter forward past stopped cars at a red light.
  • Skateboarders, inline skaters and recumbent bikes are welcomed, exercise caution.
  • Do not litter or vandalize any property.
  • Stopping: If you must stop to check your bike, phone, gear etc please move over to the sidewalk when it's clear. Do not stop abruptly in the middle of the street with the mass behind you. You will more than likely cause a cyclist to hit you and/or swerve and hit someone else.
  • Always perform an "ABC Quick" Bike Check to ensure that your bike is in safe working order

W. Flagler Street is under reconstruction. Only 2 lanes are open, please obey all road closed signage. Do not weave in & out of barricade drums. Do not ride on closed lanes!
