Celebrating the Very Best of Local Independent Pursuits
This Saturday, September 8th, Emerge Miami‘s monthly group bicycle ride will be devoted to The Magic City’s local businesses and co-operatives.
First stop on the group ride route is none other that Miami’s own Magic City Bicycle Cooperative!
Fresh from this summer’s wildly successful grand opening, the Magic City Bicycle Cooperative (MCBC) is a nonprofit, community driven, bicycle repair education center devoted to teaching the community to repair and maintain bicycles, both through group workshops and through personal one-on-one sessions.
Several people from the collective will be on hand to answer any questions cyclists may have about their workshops, services available and opportunities to volunteer.
Next stop is Nardy’s Marketplace, located on Flagler and West 11th Ave.
Serving up classic Cuban food and Little Havana culture, this open air deli/market serves is sure to please any cyclist with a taste for Cuban politics paired with a side of tamales.
The final stop on September’s ride is Domino Park, with the group exploring the local businesses of Calle Ocho along the way.
Filled with art-deco high rises and memorials to revolutionaries, Calle Ocho is filled with local markets and merchants that are the foundation of old school Cuban culture in Miami.
Cyclists are set to gather at 10am sharp, this Saturday, September 8th at Government Center for the Local Business Group Ride. Interested participants can find the route map and opportunities to RSVP with other cyclists on the Miami Critical Mass Meetup website.
Emerge Miami meets every Tuesday at 7pm to strengthen social bonds between progressives, involve the community in alternative transportation and assemble like-minded individuals for kick-ass board game nights. More more information, visit www.emergemiami.com.
