Emerge Miami's 100th ride rolled through local communities on Saturday, October 11th and gave participants of the ride a unique opportunity to learn more about some of the city’s most culturally diverse neighborhoods.
An estimated 150 cyclists attended the ride which kicked off Celebrate Diversity Miami, a new large-scale community engagement initiative aimed at promoting a deepened sense of connectivity between the culturally diverse neighborhoods of greater Miami. The group, departed from Government Center, and visited Overtown, Liberty City, and Little Haiti before concluding with a celebration picnic at Museum Park.
Along the way, riders stopped by Overtown’s Dorsey Park where URGENT, Inc. discussed several mural projects they've completed and the youth-developed app – Dorsey Detector. The next stop was in Liberty City where participants got the chance to experience a “KaBoom Park” that the Miami Children’s Initiative helped build for the neighborhood children. Riders made a last stop in Little Haiti to experience the recently opened Caribbean Marketplace before making their way to Museum Park for a final celebration.
Congrats to Emerge Miami on 100 rides and hopefully to many more. Feel free to join them on a ride on the 2nd Saturday morning of every month, check out their Meetup group for ride listings.
