Miami-Dade residents are encouraged to start the month off by leaving their car keys at home and riding to work on Bike to Work Day - Friday, March 6, 2020. Participate in any of the Miami-Dade / Bike305 sponsored Bike to Work Day events below and enjoy perks and giveaways! There's an event in Coral Gables and another in Coconut Grove. Also, The Miami Bike Shop in Wynwood / Edgewater is participating by giving those that bike to work a free doughnut and cafecito for stopping by the shop.

Grab your bike and helmet, and leave your car keys at home for the 8th Annual Bike305 Bike to Work Day on Friday, March 6th. Join a 7.6 mile police-escorted bike ride from the University Metrorail Station to Downtown Miami.

The opening ceremony starts at 8am. Riders are encouraged to arrive as early as 6:45 a.m. to receive free gifts. The bike ride to Downtown Miami begins soon after.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, Miami-Dade County Parks Director Maria I. Nardi and municipal mayors from across Miami-Dade County will kick off the event at the University Metrorail Station, 5400 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables, demonstrating how easy it is to cycle to work, especially when combined with a trip on public transportation.

Participants are encouraged to arrive by 6:45 am. to receive a free Bike305 performance shirt, free Bike305 bicycle helmet, free bagels and refreshments courtesy of Affiliated Healthcare Centers and to enjoy a meet and greet with elected officials. Latin House will provide healthy meals at the end of the ride at Government Center.

Residents are encouraged to ride their bike to work this day to show how easy it can be to leave the car behind and choose 2-wheels, combined with a trip on public transportation, to arrive at their work, school, or play destination.
