RESCHEDULED: BMD moved to July

Mother’s Day ‘Bike Miami’ event has been rescheduled to Sunday, July 3rd.

We regret the inconvenience.

Mary Brickell’s special ‘Bike Miami Mother’s Day’ event has been rescheduled for Sunday, July 3rd.

What happened?
This ‘Bike Miami’ was planned as a much smaller event, a sort of flash mob of ‘tactical urbanism’. Local businesses and volunteer organizers embrace the fact that this event has never been simply about bicycling but with the leadership of the NET office, Commissioner Sarnoff’s Office and …local businesses like Mary Brickell Village and the legendary Dolores but you can call me Lolita – who are not going to settle for such a small-scale or short event – organizers have agreed to reschedule.

A new date promises more space for those who ride, more hours for those who have other Sunday obligations and more sponsors so that our budget can go beyond police officers, cones and barricades.

A different idea, it may even have a new name. Look for updates from our partners soon – Emerge Miami, the Open Streets Team, the Miami DDA, the Downtown Miami NET Office, Commissioner Sarnoff, the Bike Coalition and many others.

Thank you and Happy Mother’s Day.
