It's all about the bicycle
Most vocal at the meeting were bikers who feel that there needs to be a much safer roadway for bikers, which I'm all for because as of now, they seem to hog the main road on weekends, blocking traffic for everyone else. If they had their own section or lanes, that would make it easier for everyone to get around.
Another meeting is scheduled for next month which should have more info on details.
A great way for bikers to meet up and learn about the new shared Republic Bike fleet is taking place Saturday, June 14 at The LAB Miami. The event, called "BIKE/ HACK/ MAKE/
|The LAB Miami.|
Starting at 9 am, the event will start off with a Hackathon, where teams of two will create an organized mechanism for the functionality of The LAB's bike sharing program. The teams will compete to see who can come up with the best creation. Sponsors TigerDirect and Republic Bike will provide a grand prize for the best idea. That's the "hack" part, the "make" part is a two hour Make-a-thon led by MIAMade, where attendees will create bike accessories with electronics, botics and something new -- 3D printers, the accessories will actually be made with the printers.
"Drank" is the 6 pm Happy Hour coinciding with Wynwood's Second Saturday Art Walk where all the LAB bike creations will be revealed. Stolen Spiced Rum drinks and Duvel beer will be featured.
The LAB Miami is located at 400 NW 26 Street, right across from one of my favs, Zak the Baker. The 10,000 square foot warehouse was created into a collaborative work and event space for forward thinking minds.
The event is free, but they would like you to register here.
