How Do We Partner with Cities?
City partnerships are how we embed the principles and mission of the Bicycle Action Committee in our communities. Our city partners help us reach actual members of the community, as well as identify opportunities for cyclist safety improvements and corporate sponsorships.
Each city partner we have also has their own special cycling shirt design. By purchasing your city’s shirt, you support the cause not only financially, but also when you ride! Scroll down to see your city’s shirt design.
Our City Partners
The City of Coral Gables’ Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan includes more than 27 miles of new or improved bikeways sidewalks and crosswalks. It recommends a comprehensive expansion and diversification of facilities to expand the demographics of residents who bicycle. As people increasingly choose to use a bicycle as a mode of transportation, vehicular traffic is reduced, balancing the transportation system and contributing to more vibrant and livable Coral Gables.
Beyond constructing a network of safe bikeways, education, encouragement and programming are playing a critical role in making Coral Gables more bike friendly.
CITY OF MIAMI
The City of Miami is working to create a more vibrant and livable community that is safe and convenient to bicycle. Through the implementation of bicycle lanes, shared use lane markings, signage, and greenways, Miami has begun to develop a bicycle network. Miami has been working to increase safe and convenient bicycle parking, as well as a robust bicycle share program. Through the Bicycle Action Committee the City of Miami works with other public agencies as well as community groups to expand communication as to upcoming activities and existing needs of the bicycle community.
VILLAGE OF PINECREST
The Village of Pinecrest adopted the Village Bicycling Plan, which was developed by the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), a resident committee, and approved by Village Council. This plan was based on an in-depth review of different options, and it details a two-phased approach to implementing a Comprehensive Bicycling Plan:
1. Implementation of Bike Routes to create a system that allows safe access throughout the Village.
2. Implementation of dedicated Bike Lanes along Select Roadways connecting the Village from East to West and North to South.
The proposed project will add bike lanes and bike routes throughout the Village to increase safety and promote connectivity along those roads that accommodate safe environment for sharing the roadway with vehicular traffic.
The City of South Miami adopted the South Miami Intermodal Transportation Plan (SMITP), which identified a coordinated set of phased multimodal improvements with a focus on pedestrian and bicycle mobility. The SMITP aims to enhance the pedestrian network of sidewalks, crossings, roadway improvements, shared use (bike-ped) facilities, and neighborhood greenways throughout the City, connecting residential areas with downtown shopping and dining, transit facilities (Metrorail and BRT) and M-Path. A main priority of the SMITP is to provide a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists, and residents through infrastructure improvements. The plan was adopted in early 2015 and was funded by Metropolitan Planning Organization and People’s Transportation Plan.
In 2007, the Miami Beach City Commission adopted the Atlantic Greenway Network (AGN) Master Plan also known as the Bike Master Plan. This master plan was focused on internal connectivity for bicycles by way of a continuous network of on-street bicycle facilities, shared-paths, Beachwalks, and Baywalks, and on creating connections between the City network and the County’s and State regional bicycle network.
The City of Fort Lauderdale is working to create a resilient, livable community that is safe and convenient to bicycle, walk and take transit. The City is working to accomplish this goal through a multipronged approach including education, engineering, enforcement, encouragement and evaluation. The City of Fort Lauderdale completed a comprehensive visioning process with its neighbors that created the Fast Forward Fort Lauderdale 2035 Vision of the city for the year 2035. We Are Connected was ranked the top priority for the residents of the city.
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).
In recognition of the need to facilitate short trips within Palmetto Bay via walking or bicycling rather than driving; achieving a higher percentage of non-motorized trips; the Palmetto Bay Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was developed in August of 2009. As a community becomes more dense, the construction of bicycle and pedestrian facilities as an alternative to automobile travel becomes more important to maintain mobility within the community.
CitiBike, formerly DecoBike, is a bike sharing, “green” public transportation solution that also provides a recreational activity open to all. Local trips can be completed via pedal power thanks to four convenient station locations throughout Surfside. The CitiBike network also provides easy connectivity to Bay Harbor Islands, Miami Beach and beyond.
The City of Hallandale Beach is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of the community in a fiscally responsible manner by providing superior services that meet the needs of our community as well as plan for their future needs through continued communication. The city is dedicated to provide multimodal transportation options to the residents to allow everyone to quickly and safely enjoy the beautiful venues in our great city.
SUNNY ISLES BEACH
Sunny Isles Beach is a geographically small area with only one main north / south corridor, State Road A1A, also known as Collins Avenue. This thoroughfare is shared by motor vehicles, delivery trucks, construction vehicles, buses and many cyclists. Being the only straight path to travel north and south in the City, it creates special challenges. This year, the City is completing a Transportation study that will identify the best solutions for these challenges.
CITY OF HOLLYWOOD
The City of Hollywood is working to create a sustainable community and is developing a Resiliency Action Plan. Mobility is one of the many focus areas of that plan. The City of Hollywood has worked collaboratively with the Florida Department of Transportation and the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization to implement a network of bicycle paths through the City. Some of the projects include the FDOT State Road 7 Improvement Project that is currently under construction.
CITY OF AVENTURA
The City of Aventura has been relocating it’s bike stations to better service its residents. Some of our locations were not user friendly and not available to users at certain times. We have added locations at the request of residents and to date they are working out well. The goal here is to create a walking and riding atmosphere that works. Car traffic in the city is very busy especially during the holidays. Being able to ho on a bike and ride safely to your destination is key. Also, being able to ride on the weekend with you family from park to park is what residents and visitors alike enjoy and are doing more often. We are looking to increase our stations to other key locations as the request come in. We are at six stations with a future expansion to eight in the next 3 years if budget allows.
