Traffic alert: Critical Mass monthly bike ride to cross Venetian Causeway Friday night

Traffic’s been tough lately in our part of paradise, with roadwork on the causeways, Alton Road, West Avenue, Collins Avenue.

Friday night will be even tougher. So be prepared.

bikerideCritical Mass is a 20-mile bike event that happens the last Friday of each month.

It’s wildly popular.  In past rides, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have been among the hundreds of riders.

But it also creates some major traffic issues. It can be frustrating to commuters who don’t plan for it.

So….Friday night’s ride starts at 7:15 p.m. at Government Center in downtown Miami. The route takes riders through East Little Havana, Overtown, Allapattah, Liberty City, Little Haiti, Upper East Side, North Bay Village, North Beach, Miami Beach, Venetian Islands, and Downtown.

The prediction is that the group will be heading west on the Venetian between 8:15  and 9 p.m., after coming south on Collins Avenue and then in from Dade Boulevard.

Given all our other road closures and the general nature of Friday night traffic, expect some very slow going. And be careful. And patient.
