|Everybody wants to take a ride. |
Last night, cyclists, business owners, and party crashers enjoyed drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and a floating bike at the pre-launch party for DecoBike
, a new bicycle sharing program. The green carpet event at the Shore Club
offered a first look at the two wheels that will be the newest way to get around SoBe.
DecoBike, in partnership the City of Miami Beach, won a bid against major corporations such as Clear Channel to run this public program. The mission is to "green" a very lush, but not very eco-conscious Miami Beach. DecoBike, touted as "a revolutionary public transit system," will consist of over 100 solar-powered stations with nearly 1,000 custom bikes. The rental kiosks will be as far north as 85 Street, but the bulk of them will be scattered around South Beach.More »
