Critical Mass cyclists will be hitting the streets of Miami and Coral Gables on Christmas night.

The ride, which takes place every last Friday of the month, is an event that draws thousands of cyclists through several neighborhoods, usually causing some traffic congestion in certain areas.

Friday’s ride starts at 7:15 p.m. from the Government Center on 150 NW First Street.

Cyclists will pedal through Little Havana, West Flagler, Coral Gables, Miracle Mile, Coral Way, Shenandoah, The Roads, Brickell, and downtown Miami.

This ride’s total distance is about 13 miles.

 

The Critical Mass movement started in order to raise awareness for the rights and the safety of cyclists and to have drivers respect cyclists and share the road with them.
