Bike Ride, South Beach, Miami FL

Description

It's really fun to bike ride along the boardwalk that runs between Ocean Drive and the beach. You can easily rent bikes with a credit card. There are bike stations called Deco Bike all along the boardwalk and you can return your bike at any of the stations when you're tired of riding! It costs $4 for half an hour, and the bikes are comfortable.
Zooming past all the interesting people on the boardwalk is a blast. Head south all the way to South Pointe Park, where there is a station. It's best to only rent your bike for half an hour. Then you can return your bike at South Pointe Park and then rent it again once you're done walking along the pier and promenade. South of 5th Ave you have to ride on a dirt path for a little while behind the hotels because of construction but it soon turns into a beautiful wide brick path. At this point you are very close to the beach and can see all the lovely colored lifeguard stands. Unfortunately these will be replaced in 2015.
Heading north, you can ride your bike as far as 23rd Street, where the cement boardwalk changes to a raised pedestrian wooden walkway.
After your ride, park your bike at the 11th Street station that's on the boardwalk and cross Ocean Drive to have a refreshing frozen yogurt at Pinkberry! The original flavor is the best, topped with fruit and mochi pieces!
