Bike The Underline for a 10-mile block party!


(MIAMI, March 17, 2015) — Cyclists are invited to enjoy safe and car-free cycling along the 10-miles of paved pathway beneath the Metrorail on Saturday, March 21, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Four Metrorail Stations will offer entertainment, art shows, health and fitness checkups, a bike rodeo for kids, yoga and zumba sessions, food trucks, and guided bike tours along the M-Path and to other great destinations nearby, including the Coral Gables Museum. Participants will also have an opportunity to help create a new “park” with materials provided, just south of the Dadeland North Metrorail Station.  

UM’s Frost School of Music will provide performances at the Brickell Metrorail Station, alongside an art show.  UHealth will provide health checks at the University Metrorail Station along with a Bike Rodeo courtesy of UM BikeSafe.  The South Miami Metrorail Station will host cyclist and runner activities, gear checks and giveaways courtesy Mack Cycle & Fitness and Footworks.  Baptist Health will provide a water station and additional health checks. Entertainer Paddy Kelligan provides the music.

Envision what The Underline will look like in the future with the help of conceptual renderings at the stations, and see how South Miami will transform its streets into a cycling-friendly community.

All activities are FREE to all cyclists, runners and walkers.  Families are encouraged to participate.

This is the day to experience The Underline, whether for a short trip or the entire 10-mile length. Bicycles are allowed on Metrorail cars, so combine biking with public transportation for a great day without a car!
