Gables Bike Day back for 4th year
The move to City Hall gives organizer, Bike Walk Coral Gables great space to expand on the family fun and festivities. This year the event coincides with Florida Bicycle Month and is the premier kickoff event for the start of the county’s Bike305 Month, which will also help to draw even more attention to this worthy cause. Biking is not just a sport or form of exercise, for many it is also a mode of transportation. The city of Coral Gables is one of the first in South Florida to create a master plan for cyclists that will include more bike lanes, linear trail parks, bike racks and other facilities throughout the City Beautiful.
Bike Walk Coral Gables invites all cyclists, skaters, parents and children to this free community event. Shake 108, a local non-profit radio station, will be providing the live music. This day is all about promoting health, physical activity and bike safety and includes guided bike tours throughout Coral Gables, healthy food and drink vendors, Bike Rodeo (teaching kids safety), live music, art bike exhibit, scavenger hunt, giveaways, fitness classes, kids entertainment and much more.
“Gables Bike Day helps call attention to cycling in the Gables and the benefits of having an area to do it in. The reason we do the event is to keep the needs of cyclists at the forefront, with a goal to make our streets safe for the many residents and students that ride in the city,” said Chairman of Bike Walk Coral Gables, John Swain.
The organizers of the first Gables Bike Day formed Bike Walk Coral Gables in 2011. BWCG envisions a community that values cycling and walking as safe and healthy forms of transportation and recreation. Their mission is to promote a safe and friendly environment for cyclists and pedestrians by advocating programs and events to educate the community.
