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.

Over 40 food trucks to choose from! We'll stop to grab some lunch before we "Make Flight".

If the complimentary bike is not a necessity, we encourage you to donate it to the Magic City Bicycle Collective.
On Friday evening the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Mario Chalmers participated in Miami Critical Mass. They joined an estimated 2,000 local cyclists on a 20 mile ride through Omni, Edgewater, Upper East Side, North Bay Village, Miami Beach, Venetian Islands, and Downtown Miami. This marked the second time D-Wade came out to the community ride which is held on the last Friday of every month. Tonight the Heat beat the Brooklyn Nets 102-89, during the post-game interview Wade mentioned the 20 mile bicycle ride and gave a shout out to Miami Critical Mass. He scored a season high 34 points and the Heat remain atop the Eastern Conference and perfect at home. Keep up the great work and thanks for helping create awareness towards the benefits of cycling!
Unfortunately for cyclists in Miami, things are far from perfect at home. Motorists are typically unaware of cyclist's rights and/or show an appalling lack of respect towards us which is primarily why these community rides are essential. Here's to better things in the future and safe streets for everyone.
