Presented by Miracle Mile and Downtown Coral Gables, Gables Bike Day is back for its second consecutive year to celebrate healthy activities and green means of transportation within the limits of the City Beautiful.
Downtown Coral Gables will welcome the community with music, food, bike tours, safe cycling and much more. Gables Bike Day will take place on Sunday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Miracle Mile eastbound lanes and Ponce De Leon north of Miracle Mile will be closed to auto traffic during those hours.
Building on the success of last year’s event that attracted almost 4,000 attendees, and presented by Miracle Mile and Downtown Coral Gables, Gables Bike Day 2012 will bring back activities such as the bike tours of Coral Gables, kids’ activities, live bands, bike polo, local restaurants and many of Miami’s bike shops. The entire route will be packed with plenty of stops for the entire family to enjoy. New activities include skate park demonstrations, roller derby, yoga, karate, a Halloween costume contest and more.
Following the 2011 event, the volunteer organizers created Bike Walk Coral Gables, the non-profit organization producing Gables Bike Day. Proceeds from this event, as well as the year-round monthly bicycle tours with partner Coral Gables Museum will promote safe biking and walking in the city of Coral Gables.
