The streets of Miami are not particularly bike-friendly, but that’s not stopping Miamians from hitting the streets for a little two-wheel exercise.
So where does Miami like to bike? We asked our STAY FIT 305 community for their favorite bike spots, and here is where they suggested for your next ride.
The Venetian Causeway has long been a biking favorite of Miami cyclists. The city and bay views attract hobbyists and casual bikers alike.
Make sure you are taking extra safety precautions before getting on your bike, and stay alert at all intersections.
The Everglades National Park is the third largest park in the continental U.S. At the very tip of the park, is a smaller area known as Shark Valley, complete with a 15-mile paved bike loop. Feel free to bring your own bike or rent one from the Visitors Center, and get ready to see some really cool wildlife along the ride. This is a safe and easy place for beginners to start biking. Make sure to use our biking newbie-friendly tips.
Rickenbacker Causeway – Virginia Key/Key Biscayne
Another uber-popular bike route, the Rickenbacker Causeway, Virginia Key, and Key Biscayne loop is a bikers dream – flat road, gorgeous seaside views, and a nice distance. The Rickenbacker Causeway hill provides for a nice challenge.
Miami Beach Board Walk (South of 21st Street)
For those who don’t live on the beach, this is a really great way to explore the area from a different viewpoint. Our advice is to not only take your bike on the Boardwalk from 21st street to 5th street but to continue on and explore south of 5th.
What better way to explore the colorful Wynwood murals than on a bike? You can rent a citibike for a couple of hours and zip up and down the artistic streets of this vibrant neighborhood. There will definitely be a few murals you’ve never seen before.
