Bike Miami Days | Coconut Grove

Sunday, April 25th, 2010
9:00am – 2:00pm

Peacock Park
2820 McFarlane Road
Miami, FL 33131



City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado, the Consul General of the Netherlands Lucita Moenir Alam, and the Dutch community will kick off the first Bike Miami Days of 2010 and Second Annual Orange Bike Parade.

South Bayshore Drive, McFarlane Road, Commodore Plaza, Fuller Street, Main Highway and Grand Avenue will be closed to cars so that bicyclists, pedestrians, rollerbladers and others can explore Coconut Grove in a fun, safe and completely FREE way.

“This is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy,” said Mayor Regalado. “Cycling is a fun and green way to see all the beautiful things our city has to offer.”

The event will mark the Second Annual Orange Bike Parade, hosted by Consul Alam to commemorate the Dutch’s preferred mode of transportation for centuries and also support the City’s effort to make Miami a more bike-friendly city.

Cyclists will have the opportunity to ride freely along a designated route in Coconut Grove. Other activities will include giveaways, skateboard demos, and bike clinics.

  1. It would be nice if someone could set up bike rentals for this. Some people would like to attend these but do not have their own bike..
