Miami Critical Mass July Photos & Videos

The consensus amonst participants is that the July Miami Critical Mass ride went much smoother than in recent months, the presence and aid of both the City of Miami and Coral Gables police played a big part in this.  The ride traversed through Little Havana, West Flagler, Coral Gables, Miracle Mile, Coral Way, Shenandoah, Riverside, and Downtown. The City of Miami bicycle patrol joined the ride, and a roadside LED sign was installed at Government Center alerting the public of the ride. While things went mostly well we wish to remind everyone that there is still room for improvement amongst riders. Most notably when it pertains to riders illegally riding over the solid double yellow line and going against oncoming traffic. Also, there are still some riders with no lights on their bicycles and those who allow large gaps to form around them, let's try to keep it one unit. For more tips go here.

Check out over 100 photos from the July '14 Miami Critical Mass ride captured by event photographer Arturo P.

Watch the videos below, particularly the second one which shows the community support and interaction amongst participants, police, and residents. Let's continue to make this a fun, free, and safe community ride. Kudos to everyone giving high fives on Calle Ocho at Viernes Culturales.

Miami Critical Mass : Friday, July 25th



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

Government Center
150 NW First Street
Downtown Miami

The ride will be going through Little Havana, West Flagler, Coral Gables, Miracle Mile, Coral Way, Shenandoah, Riverside, and Downtown. Total distance is approximately 11.5 miles. It's strongly suggested that you print a copy of the map or save it on your phone in case you are tardy or get lost.

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.
