Pedal directly into the sun and shine of the day with today’s Groupon, a day-long bike rental from Bike and Roll. Ride a Trek Calypso beach cruiser or a Trek 7200 comfort bike; the bikes are designed for comfort and concrete riding, and the rental includes a helmet, u-lock, city map, and protective helmet case to protect your protective helmet.
Glide battery-, fancy-, and motor-free through Miami Beach’s Art Deco District. Hop on the oceanfront path, stop at Lincoln Road Mall, and cruise the Venetian Causeway. Traveling on a bike is fun for tourists and natives alike, because on a bike, a person has the time and 360-degree visibility it takes to really see one’s surroundings. While the wind blows through your hair and your hair blows through your hat, bike to Key Biscayne Island, Jungle Island, across the Venetian Islands, or to an island in your spirit you’ve only dreamed of reaching by pedal.
The joys of riding a bicycle are many and beloved by many. Smells, which are dulled to undetectable levels in four-wheeled transit, are vibrant and piquant from the fresh-air perch of a bicycle saddle. The scenery of the country or of the city—its alleyways, byways, and other, quaint little ways—comes to life in a colorful panorama of shops, sidewalk folk, nature birds, and little dogs. Bike and Roll’s comfortable and well-tuned bikes roll effortlessly over obstacles such as flower planters, shopping carts, and flower planters stacked on top of shopping carts. The shopping carts of Miami at twilight, from the seat of a bicycle—sublime.
One Yelper gave Bike and Roll a four-star rating: > * …very professional. I came in and they set me up real fast with a bike that worked, advised me on where to go, gave me a map and a lock…The equipment was clean and in working order. No problems. – Kyle U.
The bicycle might be the most-best form of transportation: it causes no harm to the environment and allows you to dress like Mad Max. Before the bicycle evolved into a convenient, eco-friendly means of transportation, it went through many awkward phases: * Bike with 25 wheels * Bike pedaled by child servants * Bike propelled by bike oars * Bike where you’re not allowed to dress like Mad Max * Bike pulled by Model-T Ford * Bike resting on saddle resting on horse
These all look like great ideas on paper, but as Benjamin Franklin once said, “Paper makes a better airplane.” And the bicycle makes the best bike.
