MIAMI (CBSMiami) — South Florida’s annual “Wheels Up, Guns Down’ road mayhem came and went, ending in just three arrests total.

Around 3:00 p.m. Monday, a large mass of bicyclists hit the highways and roadways in Miami as part of the annual, but unsanctioned event, which originally started as a way to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

However, unlike previous years, the majority of the bikers are just that, people pedaling bicycles, instead of riders on motorcycles and ATV’s.

A few motorized bikers were spotted by a CBS4 News crew at the Golden Glades Interchange.

In recent years, the illegal event has become a dangerous display of stunts and racing on South Florida streets.

South Florida law enforcement agencies have said they weren’t going to tolerate any bikers, motorized or not, who ride in a reckless manner, block traffic, ride against it, pop wheelies, or ride on sidewalks.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, approximately 50-100 bicyclists entered onto northbound I-95 from State Road 112 and exited off of the highway on NW 62 St.  No roadways were shutdown as a result.

However, CBS4 spotted one bicyclist hanging onto the back of a pickup truck on the highway.

Police have cautioned that you are 27 times more likely to die in a bike crash than in a car crash and your odds of dying are dramatically increased if you are not wearing a helmet.

Most of those who’ve taken part in “Wheels Up, Guns Down” in years past were not wearing a helmet, not only endangering themselves with their driving but the public, as well.
