Magic City Bicycle Collective Aims to Spread the Cycling Gospel (Photos)
But the Magic City Bicycle Collective (MCBC) and its dedicated team of "superheroes" (aka volunteers) may be the answer to many of these problems. This newly launched, volunteer-led co-op aims to empower Miamians to grab their bikes and GO.
Saturday night was their grand opening gathering, where cyclists and interested locals alike gathered at the Collective's new space in support of a greener, healthier tomorrow. There was beer, baked goods (vegan!), and a themed pinata. And bikes. Lots and lots of bikes.

The Collective won't provide services (hence, they won't be in competition with any local biz). Instead, they're all about education. Individuals are invited to come and learn from on-site instructors how to fix and maintain their own wheels. For a $5 per hour suggested donation, riders can utilize the tools, space and the extensive knowledge of MCBC mechanics.
