Bike and Roll equips locals and tourists with eco-friendly transportation to explore the Magic City. Mounted on roving Segways and pointing out historical facts as they ride, guides swing tourists past such iconic locations as the Miami River, the eclectic Miami Beach Architectural District, and South Pointe Park at sunset. In addition to daily tours, Bike and Roll offers rentals of Trek bicycles for recreation or transportation and in-line skates for carving figure eights into the city's asphalt ice rinks.
Cycling casually through Miami Beach provides light exercise and an efficient way to whiff multiple passersby's perfumes. You'll breeze along the oceanfront path on one of Wheeleez U.S.A.'s comfy mountain, tandem, or hybrid bikes. For junior wheelers, child-sized bikes are also available. All rentals come fully equipped with helmets, locks, front packs and baskets for storage, and maps for unfurling into makeshift sails.
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.
With a cadre of certified, astute guides alongside a bevy of bicycles, Rolling Bees blends the joy of bicycling with the majesty of Miami art-deco-style attractions. Moving at a leisurely pace that’s suitable for all fitness levels, the tour begins with a brief bike fitting and safety orientation, in which cyclists learn such important tips as “keep eyes open” and “don’t push the big red ejection-seat button.”
Big Wheel USA doesn't kid around when it comes to bikes. Its storefront showcases more than 300, each from top brands such as CamelBak and Crankbrothers. Far from limited to adult-sized bikes, Big Wheel USA stocks plenty other wheeled rides, including Trikkes, exercise bikes, and skateboards.
Don't fret if nothing in the store strikes your fancy—Big Wheel's certified mechanics can customize your very own bike, complete with as many training wheels as it takes to make you feel safe. The technicians also conduct bike fittings and repair malfunctioning parts. Big Wheel also sells plenty of bike-related shoes and apparel, and keeps patrons abreast of the latest local rides and events.
