Join us at HistoryMiami on Monday, January 12th 9AM – 12PM for the opening event of ThinkBike 2015, a four-day celebration and study of how biking can make Miami more livable and sustainable.

Brought to you by the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, in cooperation with Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization, Friends of the Underline, the Dutch Cycling Embassy, Bike305 and The Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade, ThinkBike 2015 features several presentations and workshops at HistoryMiami and the Downtown Miami-Dade County Public Library.

Led by an experienced team of Dutch urban planning and mobility experts, ThinkBike 2015 focuses on The Underline, the transformative 10-mile linear park and urban trail below Metrorail from the Miami River to Dadeland South, and how it can enhance connectivity, mobility, and biking safety for hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors.

The opening session on Monday, January 12th, kicks off with a public presentation of Dutch best practices for bike infrastructure, planning, and implementation. Experts will share how the Netherlands was transformed into the world’s most bike-friendly country, where the bike is used as an alternative to driving a car. The kickoff concludes with a virtual bike ride along the M-Path, the existing bike path below Metrorail.

Sign up now for the closing session on Thursday, January 15th, from 1-3:30 PM at HistoryMiami, which will feature the findings and recommendations for the Underline’s implementation by renowned mobility and infrastructure experts (RSVP here). After the closing session, ThinkBike 2015 will conclude with the presentation of a VanMoof bicycle to the winner of the LoveBike contest followed by a party on the HistoryMiami Plaza (RSVP here).

Entries accepted through January 12, 2015. We’ll announce the winner at the ThinkBike 2015 closing event: Party on the Plaza, HistoryMiami on January 15th 3:30-5 PM.

Join us for the launch of the Ladies of Manure Calendar for 2015! It’s been a long road and we finally made it! We’re ready for the New Year with 12 months of beautiful eco-conscious women spreading the message of turning waste into treasure. Enjoy FREE drinks and fun tunes hosted at the NugBrand Clothing Co. store located at 2324 North Miami Ave. Meet the ladies behind the poop and get your copy ($20) for the new year! All proceeds benefit Fertile Earth Foundation.

The 2015 Ladies of Manure Calendar will be released at Nugbrand Pop-up Shop located at 2324 North Miami Ave. Fertile Earth, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has released their second edition of the Ladies of Manure calendar. The project was launched in 2013 to spark awareness on our waste and how it can be used a resource rather than just waste.

An educational calendar with a twist, these ladies make poop look good. With the help of Terribly Girly pin-up photography company, we took 12 local eco-conscious loving women and glammed them up in the best manure photo shoot ever planned. A true one of a kind concept, you’ll want to read up on the description of each photo to understand the message that will spark change in today’s world with eye catching images.

Hosted at the Nugbrand Clothing Co. Pop-Up Shop in Wynwood, free drinks will be provided to toast to Mother Nature and this beautiful thing we call waste. For in this world, there is no waste, it is something we humans have created. If you’re not sure what we mean by this, stop by the launch party and grab your copy or simply order one online and see for yourself and you too can reduce waste.
