Ranked by TripAdvisor as the 9th most popular activity in Miami, Wheels 2 Go Miami's guided tours lead riders through the area's most popular and bike-friendly spots such as the Venetian Causeway, Key Biscayne Island, and South Beach. Using their electric bikes, riders can self-propel at regular speeds or twist the throttle to ride up to 20 mph for up to 40 miles without pedaling or attaching a windsock to the handlebars. Electric bikes are also available for rental for those wanting to wheel about town without a tour guide.
South Florida Trikke's three-wheeled vehicles enable riders to carve through the urban landscape while reaping the toning benefits of workouts that aim to engage every muscle group. The company's fleet includes all manner of the curious conveyance system, such as body-powered Trikkes, which require users to rhythmically shift their weight to gain momentum and keep moving forward. Alternatively, electrically charged Trikkes dash around at speeds of up to 18 miles per hour, and snow Skki models conjure high-speed rushes similar to riding mountain bikes or mechanical bulls down a mountain. To spread the good word, South Florida Trikke rents out the vehicles and teaches free introductory lessons.
