BICYCLE INITIATIVES

The City of Doral strongly encourages active transportation in the community, especially in the form of bicycling. In 2008, the City of Doral adopted a Bikeway Network Plan that consists of on-street and shared use off-street bike paths that provide connectivity to residential neighborhoods, schools, parks, shopping areas, and other community facilities. To date, the City has now completed 11.22 miles of multi-use path (4.8 miles of bike lanes and 6.42 miles of shared off-road bike lanes) and is proposing a total of 33.2 miles of multi-use paths (20.86 miles of bike paths and 12.34 shared off-road paths). To encourage safety, the City released a Bicycle Public Service Announcement, and a bikeway safety and Map brochure for the community, which is available on the City Website. At 2 City park facilities, there are also designated bike paths available for the community to use during park hours.

In addition to developing the bike paths, the Parks & Recreation department in partnership with the Police Department and local schools conduct an annual Bike to School Day to teach important bicycle safety tips, proper helmet fitting as well as encourage the students to ride their bikes to school.
