Amber on a bike

By Amber Robertson posted Sep 26, 2010 at 11:22 PM

So for one of my classes we have to create a 4 minute television news story. Our topic: cycling in Miami. We thought this would be interesting since Miami-Dade was recently voted the worst place in Miami for cyclists. We got in touch with Kathryn Moore, Executive Director of the South Florida Bike Coalition, a group that advocates for safe and fair transportation laws in South Florida. As part of the story, we also covered Critical Mass (the organized bike ride that leaves from Government Center the last Friday of every month). I thought it would be cool to actually hop on a bike and ride Critical Mass, since it's something I've been wanting to do. Kathryn put me in touch with Colby, at Deco Bike, South Beach's new public transportation program that lets you rent bikes. These new bike rental stations are being put in South beach in November and allow for an alternative to taking a cab or walking. It is ideal for a 15 minute ride, allowing you to leave the bike at the next station you find and pick up another when you want. Colby lent me a demo Deco Bike to ride for Critical Mass and it was so great! Can't wait to see these spring up on the beach!
