Bike Prom~ Tweed Ride~ Broward Critical Mass

In celebration of Florida’s Bike Month, groups like MOST, Emerge Miami, Green Mobility Network and the Wolf Pack, all organized fun rides in the last 24 hours. Last night, Miami’s first Bike Prom invited people to dress up and ride to a diverse playlist of dance music through the streets of Downtown Miami. It was hugely successful for the 40 people who came, largely because of the talents of Emerge Miami’s own, Daus. Daus designed an impressive moving DJ booth, complete with record player and ipod hookup, all powered by a car battery and attached to his beautiful old Schwinn with a standard bike trailer hitch. The MOST/Emerge collaboration named Daus Prom King for his work and gave the Prom Queen title to Cojo, for her sweet flyer. We capped off the night with drinks at Bar, where the always friendly management let us park our bikes safely in the back.

Daus+Schwinn+Bike Trailer+Speakers = Dance Party

The First Annual Green Mobility Coral Gables Tweed Ride inspired some beautiful ensembles among the over 60 people who came to celebrate the traditional English look, Coral Gables history, and South Florida’s unseasonably cool Spring weather. Some swanky prizes went to the tweediest bicycle, costume and facial hair. I can’t wait until next year!

More photos to come… but check out MiamiBikeScene for the tweediest bike ride video I’ve ever seen!

Broward’s own “Wolf Pack”, an ever growing group of cyclists in and around Coral Springs, organized a new Critical Mass ride Saturday afternoon. The group was a manageable 15-20 cyclists, who rode from ‘The Walk’ around Coral Springs’ streets and parks. It was fun to a part of it and I’m looking forward to their making this a regular thing. More information (and some nicer pictures from the ride) on their Facebook page here.
