TRAFFIC ADVISORY: For those driving around downtown Miami, expect a lot of traffic on Friday evening so plan accordingly. The Miami Heat are playing the Detroit Pistons at 7:30pm and Downtown Miami is hosting the Flagler St. Jazz & Blues Block Party Also, the Brickell Avenue Bridge is broken, if the bridge remains partially closed on Friday evening then traffic will be detoured towards the S Miami Ave / SW 2nd Ave bridges which will result in more traffic on SE 2nd Street (The Filling Station) where the ride typically ends. Cyclists, the ride is over at this point and you should all clear the street. Be courteous!

Don't forget to bring bicycle lights. It's the law! We will be leaving at 7:15pm sharp. If you arrive late you will be left behind, the ride starts & ends in Downtown Miami. Rain or shine!


Please read the tips & guidelines to help you understand what is expected of all participants on this community ride. Cyclists ride at their own risk and assume responsibility for their own safety! This is a very large group and you should all look out for one another.

Cue Notes:

The ride ends at The Filling Station where they will have specials for cyclists including some $3 beers and a $5 food menu (burgers, wings & veggie wraps), they also have indoor & outdoor seating plus an upstairs with televisions, foosball & air hockey. Bring a bicycle lock if you intend on going inside! See you there!

* Riders are advised to immediately clear the street and not obstruct traffic outside the establishment once we arrive, please move yourselves and bicycles to the surrounding sidewalks and/or parking lot across the street.
