It’s no secret that safety is the most important factor when it comes to riding along the streets of Miami.

Therefore, we have provided a robust resource center below to help make your rides in Miami as safe as they can be!

When it comes to riding in the bike lanes of Miami, cyclists receive every right and duty as their counterparts operating cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Cyclists are expected to remain in the bike lane at all times. In the courtroom, a bicycle is a vehicle and is treated as such. As we continue to advocate for more bike lanes throughout Miami, we hope to encourage an increase in the number of bike lanes across Miami.

Take a look at the map of Miami’s bike lanes below. The bike lanes are shown in by the markings. Please take a moment to review the exact locations of these bike lanes in order to plan your next cycling outing safely and effectively.

As Miami cyclists find more of these safe places, there is an excellent opportunity to meet new friends, join group rides, and, most importantly, raise bike safety awareness.
