    Get your motor running (and by that we mean your legs) and head out to the Grove this Sunday.

    What has two wheels, doesn’t pollute the air and is free? Coconut Grove Bike Day, that’s what.

    So you’ve gathered Coconut Grove Bike Day is a bicycle-centered event, but there’s a bit more to it than that.

    Bike Miami Days, the force behind Coconut Grove Bike Day, is an initiative by City of Miami Mayor Manny Diaz to get people back on their bikes, make livable streets in Miami and promote urban neighborhoods in our area. They call it “exploring your city in a new way.” 

    And from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, it’s Coconut Grove’s turn for some exploration. The Grove’s streets will be shut down so you can bike, skate and/ or walk to the ongoing festivities planned for the day.

    Start out with a little brunch in the Grove at restaurants participating in the festivities and then head over to the Orange Parade, a flock of orange bikes on parade, in Peacock Park at 10:30 a.m. You’ll also find raffles, giveaways, live music, yoga, a volunteer fair and more. Plus, it’s free. And we promise there won’t be any road rage.

    So dust off your bicycle built for two, get outside and enjoy the Grove. Just be sure to leave your gas-guzzling, air-polluting car at home. This Sunday four wheels are bad and two wheels are oh-so good.
