Not surprisingly, Miami Beach’s year-round balmy temps and oceanfront paths make for prime cycling. And locals utilize 75% of Miami Beach’s Decobike share. (Other cities’ bike-share programs cater mainly to tourists.) Despite its high cost of living, Miami Beach has the lowest rate of automobile ownership in Miami-Dade county, according to Colby Reese, co-founder and CEO of Decobike. Miami Beach operates 100 kiosks with 1,000 bikes connecting to Surfside and Bay Harbor Islands, and will add 50 more stations and at least 500 bikes in downtown Miami by early 2014.
