If the only way you have found to keep your sanity in the absurd traffic of Miami is by hopping onto your bicycle and riding, you are not alone. As traffic worsens and gas prices skyrocket, bike commuting is slowly becoming less of a recreational idea and more of a reasonable commuting alternative. In addition to navigating around South Florida traffic, biking is an easy way to save money regularly and get in shape daily. Miami-Dade TV has released this video showing an example of an elementary school arts teacher who commutes daily from Cutler Ridge to North Miami using bike and transit.

Do you commute by bike? Have you considered the idea? We’d love to hear from you.

    I have been commuting by bike for a little over a month. We have saved more than 200$ on fuel bills, and I can feel my fitness level increase. I started by biking/riding metrorail, but now I bike the whole 8 mile route, to and from work.

    So at todays commission meeting the Mayor and Commission approved the creation of a B.A.C. or a Bicycle Advisory Committee. This is made up of people from Emerge Miami (known for their critical mass rides), and the Green Mobility network. I’m not sure all the others yet, but it was great to see the Mayor and Commissioners taking a positive stance on biking.

    It may surprise some of you but it’s actually possible to get around Pembroke Pines without a car, although it’s very inconvenient. I saved so much money by getting rid of my car. I pay $20 a month for a bus pass and I bike to the stops. I use the bus to get to school and work. Biking is healthier too. I lost 10 pounds easily in a few months.
