DECOBIKE Launches the Official South Beach Bike Tour Program

DecoBike is pleased to announce the launch of the Official Miami Beach & South Beach Bicycle Tour, operating in partnership with Discovery Miami Beach. This new bike tour is ideal for those wanting to experience the best Miami Beach and South Beach have to offer. The core of the tour is based in the world-famous South Beach Art Deco District and combines a DecoBike bicycle rental with a state-of-the-art, portable multi-media & audio tour player that allows riders to embark on a journey to 29+ notable and historic attractions.  

The DECOBIKE Miami Beach & South Beach Bike Tour is your self-guided tour to the very best the city has to offer including glamorous hotels, historic sites, pop culture hot spots and even a few local favorites. It’s better than a regular bike tour because riders can go about at their own pace and actually stop and enjoy shops and restaurants along the way, or check out our amazing parks and beaches.  Along the way we’ll tell you the story of this gem by the sea. You’ll hear from artists, celebrities, historians, architecture experts and others who know Miami Beach best. As you make your way around town you’ll discover the mix of old and new, historic and hip, classic and cutting-edge – not to mention the people – that make Miami Beach special!  

To book your bike tours or pick up your tour players, you can visit the Art Deco Welcome Center, located at 1001 Ocean Drive. Once you book your tour, DecoBikes may be picked up from and parked at any of 85+ convenient locations, 24 hours a day. DecoBike stations and available bikes can be easily located via the DecoBike website and iPhone app, or the CityBikes Android app. With a fleet of 1,000 custom bikes to choose from, DecoBike can accommodate small or large groups. For information for conventions and larger groups, please email us at tours@decobike.com

DECOBIKE Takes to the Streets in Partnership with Miami Art Museum

 

Decobike was a big hit this past weekend for the Miami Art Museum’s Contemporaries Art Crawl, with dozens of graffiti art enthusiasts taking to the streets of Miami’s Design and Wynwood districts.  This area has become a mecca for high-end graffiti exhibits strewn about on giant building walls and rendered with the utmost detail, drawing fans from around the world. Even Louis Aguirre, host of Deco Drive that airs on WSVN FOX, chose Decobike to check out the exhibit. Decobike partnered with MAM and provided dozens of Decobikes as a part of their charitable programs to assist the museum’s fundraising efforts. The event was a great success and an excellent example that art and cycling can go hand in hand (or foot on pedal!).

Conde Nast Traveler’s “A Perfect Weekend in Miami” featuring DecoBike

DecoBike station in South Beach

Yes, it’s true…DecoBike is essential for of the perfect weekend in Miami! Whether you are a local or a visitor, DecoBike serves many needs. Take a cruise around Lincoln Road and Ocean drive, go the gym or your office, or just park your car and ride to the sands of South Beach and take in all the sights. DecoBike does it all!

We are pleased to be featured in the February 2012 issue of Conde Nast Traveler, “A Perfect Weekend in Miami,” by Eimear Lynch who wrote:  “Borrow a DecoBike from one of 100 stations around the island (one hour, $5), and take it down Ocean Avenue. As dance-party favorites blare from boom boxes on the beach, you’ll pass all the beloved Miami stereotypes—mamacitas in barely there bikinis, musclemen, in-line skaters—on your way to grassy South Pointe Park. Linger to watch the boats go by (one of the few moments of calm you’ll find in this perpetually frenetic city), then bike back up to collect your car.”

It’s really that easy and thousands of people hit the streets every day on DecoBikes to have fun, save time commuting, forgo the hassles of parking an automobile and to help reduce the CO2 footprint of the community. Not to mention it’s a great way to burn calories and stay in shape. DecoBike is the official bikeshare program for the city of Miami Beach and the world-famous South Beach Art Deco district. Keep pedaling forward DecoBikers!
