Bike Miami Days will be held in Coconut Grove this month. There will be free bike rentals, outdoor yoga, live music, arts & crafts, bike valet and much more. There'll also be lots of parking..

It sure seems like an abundance of automobile parking for an event that revolves around cycling. It's unfortunate most South Floridians are terrified to ride their bicycles on the roads to an event such as this one. With all the available parking, you'd be under the impression that they want you to get there by car or truck. There's eight (8) highlighted parking areas on the map.

Coinciding with Bike Miami Days will be the Orange Bike Parade. The first of it's kind in Miami, in celebration of Earth Month & the Dutch Queen’s birthday. The parade is organized by the Netherlands Consulate General and the local Dutch community. The parade leaves at 10:30am from Peacock Park.

All orange dressed participants will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Royal Dutch Gazelle bicycle. There will also be a prize for the best orange decorated bicycle. Free orange t-shirts will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
