BICYCLE INITIATIVES

The City of Aventura is in the process of developing a City-wide Comprehensive Bicycling Plan. This past year the City focused on fostering a more pedestrian and bike friendly community. The Florida Department of Transportation completed a project requested by the City to provide for bike paths along the Lehman Causeway that connect our internal system to Collins Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard. Both Country Club Drive and NE 207th Street were converted this past year to dual use for both bikes and cars. Over the next several months, FDOT will be adding bike lanes to Biscayne Boulevard throughout the City. The City is exploring the feasibility of a bike share program that would allow riders to take bikes from docking stations placed around the City and return them to other locations.
