6:30pm (ride starts at 7:15pm)

Government Center
150 NW First Street
Downtown Miami

The ride will be going through East Little Havana, Flagler, Coral Gables, Miracle Mile, Shenandoah, Grapeland Heights, Allapattah, Wynwood, Overtown, and Downtown Miami. Total distance is approximately 15 miles. Make sure you come prepared and do an "ABC Quick" Bike Check to ensure that your bike is in safe working order before the ride. If you need FREE air in your tires, check in with the Magic City Bicycle Collective before the start of the ride.

* W Flagler Street has been converted to a two-way road between 7 Avenue and 2 Ave (details)

The City of Miami Police will NOT be escorting the Miami Critical Mass ride. If you feel uncomfortable riding in traffic without police support, then you should NOT come on this ride. You are solely responsible for your actions, if you disobey any traffic laws (take red lights, stop signs, etc) that is totally on you, the rider. People ride at their own risk and assume responsibility for their own safety on and off the road! Critical Mass Miami is simply a bike ride, not a sanctioned event. There is no organizer, the route is suggested and shared as a courtesy so residents throughout the city can anticipate where they may encounter more traffic for a few minutes on the last Friday of every month.
Miami Critical Mass is one of the few FREE happenings where residents and visitors can really experience our beloved city regardless of age, race, gender or economic status. As so many of you have shared with the local cycling community over the last 12 years, Critical Mass has had innumerable positive, personal impacts on our community. Miami Critical Mass deserves to be recognized for getting countless people comfortable with riding bikes in our city – whether for fitness, transportation, or just for fun. For many bike commuters, CM gave them their first experience riding on busy roads. Riding in a group makes people feel safer, and it introduces beginners to other group ride, events, and local bicycle initiatives and projects.

It may only be 60 minutes out of the month, but Miami Critical Mass helps promote bicycling and bicycle awareness year-round.



Bicycle Rules & Safety Tips
  • Stay in the right lane, and do not ride across middle line on the road into opposite travel lane
  • Yield to emergency vehicles.
  • Leave left lane open for other riders to pass safely. Pass on the left.
  • No Headphones! While riding a bicycle it is illegal to wear a headset, headphone or other listening device, other than a hearing aid or instrument for the improvement of defective human hearing.
  • Safety Lights: Front & rear lights are required by law in the State of Florida. 
  • Kids under 16 years of age must wear helmets.
  • Do not ride on the sidewalk.
  • Passing: A passing cyclist is responsible for the safety of the cyclist that is being passed. When passing ring a bell and/or say "on your left".

  • No consumption of alcoholic beverages or illegal activity during ride.
  • Do not filter forward past stopped cars at a red light.

All eyes appear to be on Miami Critical Mass and it’s time for participants to prove the opposition wrong. Everyone riding is solely responsible for their actions and should lead by example. If you see someone riding or behaving irresponsibly, then let them know it’s not acceptable. If you’re partaking in the ride, then it’s your duty to positively influence others. Ride safely and be courteous to everyone in the community, if you can’t do this then quite simply you are not welcomed. There’s no room for hostile, drunk, moronic individuals. There are a lot of great people on these rides, enjoying their city by bicycle for 1-2 hours on the last Friday of every month, and it’s rather unfortunate that a few bad apples can ruin this special occurrence for everyone else. To frustrated motorists, borrow a bicycle and try joining the ride sometime with some friends. You never know, you just may experience one of the most fun, free, and healthy social gatherings South Florida has to offer.

Cyclists ride at their own risk and assume responsibility for their own safety!
