biking

Miami's local bike culture is definitely evolving, and there is a lot of beautiful scenic spots to cycle. With fantastic weather there's no better place to pump up those tires and wipe the dust off that helmet and go for a ride.

Whether you want to mountain bike or just take a nice cruise, here are the options of bike trails in Miami-Dade you and your family can enjoy. Pick up a bike from your hotel or head to one of the CitiBike stations and rent a local bike with 1,000 bikes offered in Miami Beach and over 750 bikes in Miami.  And if your up for it, join the local Critical Mass cycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month; its purpose is not usually formalized beyond the direct action of meeting at a set location and time and traveling as a group through city or town streets on bicycles. You'll find the local miamians lightly honking to cheer the riders on, same goes with pedestrians hollering from the sidewalks, the mere sight of an abundance of bicyclists on the streets of Miami excites them, it's a beautiful thing.

40001 State Road 9336, Homestead, FL

This 15-mile paved loop is the ultimate escape from Miami madness. The ride takes you deep into the heart of the Everglades, to a lookout tower with a view that's utterly Instagrammable. See gators, grasshoppers and all kinds of fowl along the way. 

Enter Everglades National Park via the Ernest Coe Visitor Center, you’ll hit the mile-long Anhinga Trail, full of wildlife like alligators, herons, and egrets amid the sawgrass.

South Point Park 

1 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

With a 360 degree view of the gorgeous, glittering Atlantic, you'll be hard pressed to find another cycling spot as charming. Bring your own wheels or rent a Deco Bike. Cruise along the water and be thankful you live where other people vacation. The southernmost tip of South Beach is also one of its most beautiful spots. A pier juts out, separating the beach from Government Cut, the waterway headed to PortMiami. It’s also has big, shady parks with bike paths, a field, an observatory deck, and a small water park for the kids. You can keep biking north from here until the boardwalk begins. When you’re ready to relax you can find a spot on the pier to watch the cruise ships come in, or find a spot to sunbathe on the beach.

 

 

Commodore Trail - Coconut Grove, Miami 

2845 Brickell Ave., Miami, FL 33129

The Rickenbacker Trail connects to the Commodore Trail which heads south thru Coconut Grove on the east side of South Miami Avenue, South Bayshore Drive, McFarland Avenue and Main Highway, Douglas and Edgewater Drive. While it may be challenging in areas, this trail will take you to five parks, historic sites, schools and tree-canopied neighborhoods which give you a glimpse of “Old Florida”. Vizcaya Museum & Gardens is on this trail. This trail takes you on a breezy, lush ride through some of Miami's loveliest areas, from South Miami Avenue to Bayshore Drive, down Main Highway and Douglas Road. It pops by the Museum of Science, Vizcaya, Kennedy Park and Peacock Park, and offers an excellent five-mile survey of Coconut Grove's historic charm.

  


Rickenbacker Trail - Key Biscayne 

6747 Crandon Boulevard 

It doesn't get better for bikers than Key Biscayne, though anyone would be wise to stay cautious and always wear a helmet -- it can get more than a little hairy on the causeway. This 8.5 mile trail takes you all the way across the key, from Powell Bridge to Crandon Park to Bill Baggs. It's a heck of a picturesque path. The Rickenbacker Causeway connects Miami to Key Biscayne over the Bay, then turns into Crandon Boulevard and goes all the way to the end of the Key. It’s a little under six miles one way. Once you cross over, head over to Crandon Park or Bill Baggs State Park to soak up our endless summer rays. 

 

Old Cutler Trail - Coral Gables

SW 87th Avenue and Old Cutler Road 

The Commodore Trail connects to the Old Cutler Trail at Ingraham Park in Coral Gables. Follow this trail south for 13.5 miles under the fabled tree umbrella of Old Cutler Road past Matheson Hammock Park, Fairchild Tropical Garden, Pinecrest Gardens, and Deering Estate all the way to the Town of Cutler Bay. The Old Cutler Trail has been re-paved over the past several years so you will have a smooth, well-marked pathway to your destination. This tree canopied-trail winds its way through some of the most picturesque parts of Coral Gables, from beneath the banyans on Old Cutler to the ins and outs of Matheson Hammock Park (bike through for a stunning view of Biscayne Bay). Eleven miles long, the ride is a bit bumpy (what with tree roots and all), so it's best for a leisurely pace.

 

 

Snake Creek Trail 

North Miami Beach, Fl 33136

 This easy-peasy three-mile trail takes a nice tour of the Miami Gardens area, cruising by Greynolds Park, Snake Creek Park, Shenkenberger Park and near the Spanish Monastery Gardens (worth a minor detour).

The 6.5 miles of wide, paved, tree-shaded trail takes you past restaurants, schools, and workplaces and includes amenities like parks, picnic shelters and fitness stations.

4.2 miles of paved trail with some areas of cobblestone and an interruption of a wooden beach boardwalk where bikes are prohibited. Lots of restaurants, shops, swaying palm trees and spectacular views of Biscayne Bay.
