Miami Critical Mass : Friday, June 27th



Friday, June 27th
6:30pm (ride starts at 7:15pm)

Government Center
150 NW First Street
Downtown Miami

The ride will be going through Little Havana, West Flagler, Grapeland Heights, Allapattah, Brownsville, Liberty City, Wynwood, Midtown, Edgewater, OMNI, Park West, and Downtown. Total distance is approximately 12.75 miles. It's strongly suggested that you print a copy of the map or save it on your phone in case you are tardy or get lost.

All eyes appear to be on Miami Critical Mass and it’s time for participants to prove the opposition wrong. Everyone riding is solely responsible for their actions and should lead by example. If you see someone riding or behaving irresponsibly, then let them know it’s not acceptable. If you’re partaking in the ride, then it’s your duty to positively influence others. Ride safely and be courteous to everyone in the community, if you can’t do this then quite simply you are not welcomed. There’s no room for hostile, drunk, moronic individuals. There are a lot of great people on these rides, enjoying their city by bicycle for 1-2 hours on the last Friday of every month, and it’s rather unfortunate that a few bad apples can ruin this special occurrence for everyone else. To frustrated motorists, grab a bicycle and try joining the ride sometime. You never know, you just may experience one of the most fun, free, and healthy social gatherings South Florida has to offer.

Bike / Hack / Make / Drank



Saturday, June 14th
9am - 9pm

"Bike on over, hack out a bike share program, make bike accessories with a 3D printer and then finish it all off with a drink! Sound like an obscure itinerary for a Saturday? Not to the folks at The LAB Miami and Republic Bike.

On Saturday, June 14, Wynwood tech hub, The LAB Miami, will host BIKE / HACK / MAKE / DRANK, a three-part launch event for its new, shared Republic Bike fleet. The custom bikes will be branded with imagery of the program’s sponsors, TigerDirect and MIAMade, and will be made available as an added amenity to the entrepreneurial members of The LAB Miami.

As Miami’s most talked about breeding place for innovation and progressive startups, The LAB Miami is centrally-located in Miami’s budding Wynwood neighborhood, an up-and-coming area that still lacks a sense of pedestrian permeability. The area’s hot spots are still significantly spread out; therefore, Miami-based tech retail giant TigerDirect and local maker organization MIAMade came together to provide a sustainable transportation solution for the members of The LAB, the burgeoning creative campus that continues to propel Miami into the international tech spotlight. Given its shared commitment to environmental sustainability and alternative urban transportation solutions, Republic Bike seemed to be the obvious fit for such a program.

To launch this exciting shared bike program, Republic Bike decided to activate its three-part event, BIKE / HACK / MAKE / DRANK, at The LAB Miami in an effort to raise awareness for the new program and to spread the word about the importance of environmentally-friendly transportation alternatives.

Guests and participants are invited to bike on over at 9am in time for the festivities to begin! The first part of the event will consist of a Hackathon where teams of two will compete to create an organized mechanism for the functionality of The LAB’s bike sharing system. The team with the most logical, innovative and easy-to-use mechanism will win a prize provided by TigerDirect and Republic Bike.

The MAKE (3pm) part of the event will consist of a two-hour Make-a-thon with a bicycle twist, led by MIAMade. This special maker event will bring Miami’s maker community together to create a plethora of eclectic bicycle accessories with electronics, robotics, 3D printers and other popular maker apparatuses.

To wrap up the three-part launch, the DRANK (6pm) portion will coincide with Second Saturday’s Art Walk. Stolen Spiced Rum cocktails and Duvel beer will be served to the public, as the official Republic Bike fleet of The LAB Miami will be revealed. All locals are invited to stop by and test out the new LAB bikes!"
