Every school year in the fall and spring, Bike Coconut Grove has worked with local schools and PTAs to organize Safe Routes to School events and Bike and Walk to School Days.
In October 2019, nine public and private schools in Coconut Grove participated. At two of the schools, we counted cars passing the school on the day of the event, and we saw reductions in the number of cars of 10% and more.
On Mon., May 17, 2021, we are resuming Bike and Walk to School Day activities following closure due to Covid-19 for the first time since 2019. For this event, we are partnering with the BikeSafe and WalkSafe programs at the University of Miami Medical School, the City of Miami Police Department, the GroveConnect initiative, and the Coconut Grove Business Improvement District. For more information or to help with organizing, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The map below shows the bike train routes and the locations of police officers on May 17.
