Welcome to Miami! This steamy city offers up diversity across the board from types of cuisines to attractions. Whether you're looking for white sand beaches or contemporary art, you'll find it in Miami. What better way to see this beachy metropolis than by bike? We asked Shah Hatun to show us around her city, check out what makes the top of her list: 

 

Miami Beach

Miami's flat landscape is ideal for biking, I'll be hopping on my Willow 3 to show you my favorite spots! First stop is Miami Beach for some sun and powdery soft sand. A South Florida vacation would not be complete without taking a picture in front of this iconic watch tower in Miami Beach. Don’t mind the over 100° F weather on this fine July summer day, there is always a breeze in between those tall palm trees that follows you everywhere.

 

 1. Ocean Drive

Miami Beach Biking to the south end of the strip, you'll find your way to Ocean Drive. This is the scene to be seen at any time of the year day or night. People walking, biking, and roller skating (and sometimes movie making), there is always a crowd in the bars and restaurants of the one and only Ocean Drive, Miami Beach.

2. South Beach 

Ocean Drive, MiamiNo one can say they visited Miami without spending a day at world famous South Beach. The beautiful Atlantic Ocean waves and year-round Florida sunshine is at its best in beautiful South Beach, just a few steps away from margaritas of glitzy Ocean Drive…

3. Lincoln Road

Miami Beach

Lincoln Road in Miami beach offers shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, street artists, hand-made crafts and much more. You can easily spend hours wandering around this pedestrian friendly street mall at the heart of Miami Beach. Here, people watching is definitely an all-day activity.

 4. Wynwood 

Wynwood Walls, Miami

Need a break from lounging around on the beach? Head inland to the Wynwood neighborhood. Miami is quickly becoming a world famous art center, hosting one of the largest contemporary art fairs in the US, Art Basil Miami Beach. The Wynwood disctict, home of over 70 galleries, museums, and street collections is the place to be if you really appreciate art. While strolling around the streets of Wynwood, a former warehouse district, I came across this scene from Star Wars Episode VI, Return of the Jedi, depicting The Ewoks.

 

5. Miami Design District

Willow 3 in Miami

Craving some luxury? Bike over to the Miami Design District, conveniently neighboring Wynwood. With its huge outlet and designer malls, Miami is a hub for all Latin American shoppers.  Non-existent just a few years ago, the Miami Design District is now home to this designer shopping mall for the rich and famous…

 

6. Mandolin Aegean Bistro 

Mandolin Aegean Bistro

Miami is all about beaches, night life, clubs, and restaurants. Mandolin Aegean Bistro, a Turkish/Greek restaurant, is a hidden gem not to be missed for those who love world cuisine at its best. 

 

7. Bayfront ParkBayside Market

Steps away from Downtown Miami lying between Bayfront Park and the home of our beloved Miami Heat (American Airlines Arena), is Bayside Marketplace. Free live concerts, boat tours of beautiful Miami Bay, shopping, restaurants, water taxis, and of course colorful daiquiris are just some of the things that attract locals and tourists alike. 

 

8. Cafe Versailles

Head to Cafe Versailles to talk politics with the locals while sipping on a Cuban coffee (café con leche if you prefer milk with your coffee). No candidate was ever elected president without shaking hands and winning hearts of Miami Latino voters in this Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) restaurant. The Cuban pastellitos that not to be missed!

Shipped quick and received perfectly

Thank you for sharing Bill. -Ryan Zagata

Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata

Roebling
Joseph Abad (West Hartford, US)
Great experience--great fit--great value!

My Brooklyn Roebling checks ALL of the boxes (rack compatibility, STEEL, and most importantly a frame in a 15"!) for an upright (and underrated) commuter/wherever bike. Having this bike for two years, it fits like a glove and is as utilitarian, or minimal, as I want it to be.

Another comment on fit: thinking I was a 14" (in the Lorimer)--Ryan gave me a call and suggested I bump up in size to the 15" (Roebling). He was spot on--and even did me the courtesy of finding a bike shop that "he felt good about" to do the professional assembly.

I love my Roebling so much that I've sticker-bombed it for personal flare. It's not leaving my stable!

Thanks so much Joseph. We appreciate you coming back to share your experiences two years later. We try to build our bikes with longevity at the forefront and it seems our product management team is delivering on that promise. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Perfect Bicycle

As soon as I saw its sleek, vintage look, I knew this was the perfect bike for me. Ordering could not have been easier. And having it shipped to and assembled by a local bike shop made it a breeze. Six weeks later, I love everything about this bike and could not be happier with my choice. I can't say enough about it!

Thanks so much for sharing. The Driggs is a real head turner so we're glad you're able to enjoy it and appreciate the feedback. -Ryan Zagata

Look At That Rack!

I had won a New Belgium cruiser a few weeks ago. It was shipped to me and while in transit, the rack was bent. I located the rack on the website to fit the bike. It shipped quickly and was very easy to install. My overall experience was great! I was informed about this purchase from the moment I ordered it and it was easy to track until it was delivered.

Thanks so much for sharing Johny. So glad you're digging your rack. -Ryan Zagata
