It's true that Miami's affinity for two-wheeled travel pales in comparison to the likes of Portland or any European city. But local bike culture is definitely evolving, and we've got more than our fair share of spots to cycle.

With the totally fantastic weather we've been having lately, there's no better time than now to pump up those tires and wipe the dust off that helmet -- don't let the angry local drivers keep you from free-wheeling. Here are ten of South Florida's best spots to put two wheels down.

The Ten Best Places to Bike in Miami

10. Biscayne Trail

This 2.7 miler kicks off at the southernmost end of the longer Old Cutler Trail, and weaves its way through residential neighborhoods and tree-shaded streets.

You can pick up the trail at the conclusion of Old Cutler Trail on one end and Black Point Park & Marina at the other.

9. Black Creek Trail, Miami

This nearly nine-mile paved path runs between Black Point Park and Marina and Larry and Penny Thompson Park, by the Miami Metro Zoo. If you're into a longer ride, it also connects to Old Cutler Trail and Biscayne Trail. You can even be on the hunt for manatees, alligators, and birds along the Biscayne Bay stretch.

You can pick up the trail at Larry and Penny Thompson Park.

8. Snake Creek Trail, North Miami Beach and Miami Gardens

Upcoming Events

This easy-peasy three-mile trail takes a nice tour of the Miami Gardens area, cruising by Greynolds Park, Snake Creek Park, Shenkenberger Park and near the Spanish Monastery Gardens (worth a minor detour).

You can pick up the trail at Diefenbach Bicentennial Park on one end, and Sierra Park on the other.
