Street. Art. Cycles : Art Basel Bike Tour
December 2 - 4
Street.Art.Cycles: Art Basel Edition will bring bicycle exploration, practicality and creativity to Art Basel in Wynwood. Street.Art.Cycles, in conjunction with the urban beautification art collective, Primary Flight, presents an enhanced experience for art tourists during Art Basel week by showcasing one of the United States most interesting neighborhoods.
Bicycling through Wynwood's outdoor exhibits is an intimate and personal experience, the equivalent of strolling through the halls of a great, outdoor museum. Street.Art.Cycles presents docent‐guided tours of significant street art in Miami’s Wynwood Art and Design Districts by bicycle. Street.Art.Cycles: Graffiti by Bike tours will be held at 11 am and 4 pm daily on
December 2nd, 3rd and 4th, originating from Primary Flight's base at Cafeina Lounge, 297 NW 23 Street, 33127. The Green Mobility Network will provide complimentary bicycle valet on Friday, December 3rd and Saturday December 4th at Panther Coffee, 2390 NW 2nd Avenue, 33127. Bike-checks are a quick, convenient and, inexpensive solution to urban mobility, a fresh alternative to
parking the car or finding a cab. Other groups may join in the cycling fun, leading tours connecting Wynwood, the Design District and Little Haiti.
“This year is about growth: Miami is set in motion, and Primary Flight paved the way,” said Books IIII Bischof, principal of Primary Flight. “Since our involvement, Wynwood has become a street art Mecca with legs of its own. It’s time for Primary Flight to grow in new directions, and we always take cue from our ever‐changing culture.”
