Bike Miami Days has received national attention and has been held more than five times since its inception in November 2008. As with Bogota, Miami’s event was the mayor’s idea and is coordinated through Mayor Manny Diaz’s Office. On designated [Sundays], crowds of cyclists and pedestrians flood the streets of downtown Miami… Music, food, and basic bicycle mechanic lessons are available for all participants. The event itself is free, provides a forum for community interaction, gets people outside and exercising, and provides much needed visitation and an economic boost for local businesses on what might otherwise be a quiet day downtown.
