Making the move from a car to a bike has a lot of benefits for Miamians. If simply lessening your carbon footprint isn't enough of an incentive, then how about ditching the every-evening bumper-to-bumper
torture jams on Lincoln road? When smog is blotting out that gorgeous Miami sun and your patience is melting like ice on the boardwalk, you'll realize a bike is the best, nay, noblest way to get around South Beach.
To those of you griping about buying, stop right there, because W South Beach just made pedal-pushing a whole lot easier. They're partnering with DecoBike to launch a branded fleet of 750 bikes in celebration of three glorious Miami summers and inviting visitors and residents to hop on and enjoy Miami Beach in a traffic-transcending, go-green way.
If you hail from out of state, all you have to do is check-in between June 1 and July 31, and book the DecoBike package. Retailing at $439 per night, you'll get your generally fabulous hotel stay on top of bike-tastic adventures around SoBe. For the locals, make your vehicular transition at one of the 100 stations set up around Miami — if you're not trying for a snazzy staycation. But, if you are (and we always are), head to W South Beach's Facebook page and enter to win a complimentary stay by uploading your best W edition bike moments. Warning, we're entering, too.
