April’s Second Saturday Ride enjoyed a beautiful day by bike with friends, flora, and fine poetry. In celebration for O! Miami- a month of poetry and literary love- the Emerge crew took our bicycling friends to experience poetry in the garden at R.Y.P.E.‘s community setup.
Join us for an evening of truth, debate and entertainment! You are encouraged to bring your favorite Conspiracy Theory to this event to join in our discussions. We are still looking for presenters, so if you have any questions send an email to email@example.com or just show up, no registration necessary. Serious and humorous theorists and everything in-between welcome. This evening will have something for everyone!
All presenters will be allowed 5 minutes to introduce their theory. All attendees will then vote on who gets more time for Conspiracies: Round 2, where they will have a chance to expand upon their theories.
Bring your Powerpoints, Slideshows, Models and Photographic Evidence for presentations! Vegetarian food or snack items for the potluck would be greatly appreciated. See you May 3rd at Sweat. Until then, happy conspiracy hunting!

Emerge Miami is excited to ride with you for our annual loooooong trip, celebrating the end of Miami’s Bike Month. We will meet 10:00am at Dadeland South Metrorail station and ride down to Florida City’s Robert is Here, a fruit and juice stand that is an icon of the Redlands. This ride will be roughly 60 miles.
Cruiser and mountain bikes are discouraged for this ride, due to its length. Please be prepared by dressing comfortably, wearing sunscreen, and bringing plenty of water!

Miami’s bike scene is such a phenomenon, we celebrate Bike Month early in the year! While our northern friends wait to thaw out from a polar vortex in time for a May’s national Bike Month, Miamians will be pedaling along in March.
Here’s a heads up on some pedal-powered activities to enjoy this month:
Saturday, May 1:
A Long Ride Up US-1!
Meeting Place: Tri-Rail Metrorail Station- 10 Am
Riders will roll out to east to US-1 and head north through the three counties to Palm Beach and then take the Tri-Rail home! Follow the Tri-Rail Route and test your endurance. The ride will always be within a mile or two of the Tri-Rail, should you need to head back. Those who plan to ride the full amount should dress comfortably, bring plenty of water and sunscreen, and be ready to ride for most of the day. The route is roughly 75 miles one-way!

Meeting Place: Vizcaya Metrorail Station- 10 AM
Join our monthly ride. We will travel through the Grove, South Miami, and Pinecrest. Stops include the Wayside Market for snacks and drinks, and the lagoon at Matheson Hammock for a picnic, sun, and maybe some swimming.

We should be back between 4-5 PM ( times are uncertain!)
