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.
