DecoBike is cranking along! The atmosphere is ripe for high ridership in Miami Beach and its South Beach Art Deco District. The fleet logged a new monthly ridership record with 125,411 rides logged in the month of March 2012! Since the start of the New Year, DecoBike has been the busiest bikeshare in the US, averaging over 100,000 rides each month. Traffic jams and congested roads go to show that it really pays to have access to a DecoBike, making it the quickest and easiest way to move about. Bike sharing programs are here to stay!

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.
