11:00 am - Tour de Wynwood (corner of N Miami Ave / 25th St)
Between 11am and 1pm we will embark on a slow bicycle tour around Wynwood and Midtown with the Street.Art.Cycles crew, we'll stop at various new murals and installations and hear brief descriptions about the pieces. Every year Art Basel attracts an influx of street artists and this year is no different, there's a lot of fresh art out there for all to see and we'll most likely witness some live aerosol painting along the way. We'll also visit a few of the ARTcycle exhibited bicycle installations and Heineken's The Mural Project pieces along the route.
1:15 pm - Food Truck Rally (NW 2nd Ave/23rd St)
Over 40 food trucks to choose from! We'll stop to grab some lunch before we "Make Flight".
2:00 pm - Make Flight (Maplots, 342 NW 24th St)
Come experience "Make Flight", an installation art piece showcasing the passion two airlines have for culture, art, and people. They need us to make their plane fly w/ pedal power, 15 riders at the same time!
100 FREE bikes & red t-shirts will be given to everyone who participates (supplies limited). The lucky participants will be issued vouchers on Saturday to redeem the free bike. The bicycles will be available for pick-up the following day (Sunday, 12/09). Giveaways courtesy of LATAM Airlines.
If the complimentary bike is not a necessity, we encourage you to donate it to the Magic City Bicycle Collective.
