Friday night bike ride will cross Venetian, snarl traffic

Route for Friday night's ride

Route for Friday night’s ride

Plan for a Venetian Way traffic mess Friday night.

Critical Mass — the last-Friday-of-the-month bicycling event — is using its last chance before Venetian bridge construction closes the west span on June 1 to make the Miami Beach to mainland Miami crossing.

And that means at minimum, hundreds of bikes crossing the causeway starting around 7:45 p.m.

Friday’s ride starts at 7:15 p.m. on the mainland, riders will cross to Miami Beach over the 79th Street Causeway.

According to Miami Beach police, the cyclists will then continue east along 71 Street, then south at Indian Creek Drive towards 63 Street. They will continue south along Collins Avenue to Dade Boulevard.

At Dade Boulevard, cyclists will head west to the Venetian Causeway, where they will exit Miami Beach and continue into the city of Miami.

Our advice: Plan your Venetian travel before 7:30 p.m. or after 9 p.m. — and just to be careful. And if you get caught in the traffic, be patient!
