Miami Lakes introduces Bike-Sharing for more mobility

Miami Lakes will kick-off its new partnership with SPIN Bike-Sharing Company during the Neighborhood Improvement Committee’s (NIC) Community Bike Ride on Saturday, December 9.

Community Bike Ride attendees will get a chance to take FREESPIN Bike rides, as well as take advantage of special promotions for future rides.

In addition, NIC will debut a new Community Bike Ride route that will begin and end at the Youth Center at Miami Lakes Picnic Park East, 6075 Miami Lakes Drive. Registration will be held at 9 a.m. for the 5-mile family-friendly loop/

SPIN is a bicycle-sharing company that operates a station-less bicycle-sharing system which uses a mobile app for reservations. The SPIN bicycles are orange-colored bikes equipped with onboard GPS units and cellular modems.

Rides cost $1 for every 30 minutes. Bicycles are unlocked using a mobile app that scans a QR code on the bicycle. Since the SPIN bicycles are station-less, they can be parked anywhere within the Town at designated landscape/furniture zones on sidewalks.

SPIN’s ground operations team will place SPIN bicycles in an orderly fashion curbed on sidewalks at least six fee wide and at/or near bike racks and bike corrals. The company will ensure that bicycles are not obstructing pedestrian or motor vehicle traffic.

SPIN users and the general public can report bikes obstructing the public right of way 24/7 via the website or the app. SPIN will then dispatch a ground operations member to deal with the problem.
