[UPDATED]: The Florida Department of Transportation, under Secretary Ananth Prasad, is bringing ciclovía to Miami-Dade County. The plan is to “open the street” (in this case, SW 8th St from SW 22nd Ave to SW 9th Ct) to people on foot, on bike, on any form of non-motorized transportation, to experience historic Calle Ocho and provide FDOT with citizen input toward ongoing studies related to proposed improvements of this corridor.
Save the Date! Sunday, December 14, 2014, from 9am to 1pm.
Like Bike Miami Days, this ciclovía will be 100% free, family-friendly and locally based. There are no vendors - but there are lots of opportunities for local groups (Bicycle/Pedestrian/Health advocates, artists, community organizations) to participate by activating their own section of the 1.2 mile stretch.
If you’d like to participate, please contact Zak Lata, FDOT Bike/Ped Coordinator here.
I’m personally helping to coordinate this new program and would love to hear from you in the comments and to see you on December 14th!
Note: This ciclovía is confirmed on Sunday, December 14th. A previous version of this post stated a since changed date.
