The New Tropic is proud to partner on a community bike ride to discuss a variety of local issues from transit to gentrification while visiting the diverse and fascinating neighborhoods of Coconut Grove and Little Havana. You’ll get to meet with community leaders from incredible organizations like Emerge Miami, Diversity Miami, Coconut Grove’s Collaborative Development Corp. and Little Havana Tours.

The tour’s pace will be leisurely enough so our group stays together during the entire excursion, which is approximately 15 miles long with multiple stops scheduled for every few miles. Required gear is close-toed shoes (e.g. sneakers), while sun protection is recommended (e.g. hat, sunscreen, etc.). The tour will culminate back at museum park for the annual Philanthrofest Festival.


First stop: The fountain at Bayfront Park
Coconut Grove stops: Historical emphasis will take place along Charles Ave. next to the Mariah Brown House and Odd Fellows Hall. Current/Future Development emphasis will take place just outside the Collaborative Development Corp.’s office along Grand Ave.
Little Havana stops: Historical emphasis will take place at the Los Pinarenos Fruiteria along 8th Street across the way from Cuban Memorial Park. Current/Future Development emphasis will take place near intersection of SW 12th Ave. and 6th Street by Con Sabor a Mexico.

The event is BYOBike but you can also rent a Citi Bike for $18 for the day.
