The South Florida Bike Coalition believes that bicycles are ‘the missing link’ of local transportation. Bicycles have the greatest potential for increasing use of our existing public transit and transportation systems. Bicycles can reduce traffic congestion, improve safety on our roads, promote community safety and reduce strain on our existing infrastructure in an uniquely cost-effective way. We will be submitting our ideas; won’t you take a moment to voice your own ideas, big or small, to improve transportation in Miami-Dade County?
