2 Responses to More Bike Lanes Coming to Miami Beach?

  1. I live right by these roads, so I’ll be there. I’m hoping that in essence what this means is that they’ll put bike lanes on Normandy Dr & 71 St, from Bay Dr. West to Collins Ave. (the length of Normandy Isle plus that extra bit to Collins).


  2. Hope they’ve added more bike lanes in Miami. Miami could benefit a great deal from these lanes.
