Are DECOBIKES always available at every DECOSTATION?
No. Although there is a great supply of DECOBIKES, occasional fluctuations in user demand patterns may cause a particular DECOSTATION to either be empty or full. If you are trying to return a DECOBIKE and a station is full, please go to the nearest station with vacant docking points/parking spots and (a map of all DECOSTATION locations is on the kiosk; the DECOBIKE website & iPhone Application show locations and inventory). Do NOT leave the DECOBIKE unsecured.
Do I need to go to a specific DECOSTATION to check out a bike?
No. You can check a DECOBIKE out from ANY station in the city.
Do I need to return my DECOBIKE to the same station I check it out from?
No. You can return your DECOBIKE to ANY station with empty docking points/parking spots.
How long can I use a DECOBIKE for?
You can use DECOBIKE for the time period you purchased or subscribed for (either 30, 60 or 120 minutes) without any additional charges. If you keep the bike checked out longer than your purchased time frame, additional fees will be applied to your account/transaction. See User Agreement for full details.
How many DECOBIKES can I check out with a single credit card (non-subscription members)?
Currently, only two (2) DECOBIKES are allowed to be checked out per credit or debit card at a given time.
Can I transfer or loan the DECOBIKE and/or a Membership card to a friend or any other person?

Miami Beach Police are authorized to stop and ask for proof of age from any individual on or in possession of a DECOBIKE who clearly appears to be under 18 years of age. If violator is found to be under the age of 18, he/she must immediately return the bike to a DECOSTATION under Police supervision and an official Police Report Shall be filed in the public record.

Do I have to wear a helmet to use DECOBIKE?
Florida law does not require adult riders (ages 18+) to wear a helmet. However, a properly fitted helmet will reduce your chances of severe head injury or death in the event of an accident. Florida law does not require adult riders (ages 18 and over) to wear a helmet. We strongly recommend the use of helmets at all times when riding any bicycle.
Helmets are available for purchase at the DECOSTORE | 723 Washington Avenue | South Beach | Call 305.532.9494 for store hours as well as other retailers in the area.
I have never ridden a bicycle before, should I rent a DECOBIKE?
No. DECOBIKE is for experienced and knowledgeable bicycle riders only, ages 18+. You must know how to operate a bicycle safely before using a DECOBIKE. DECOBIKE is not liable for a user's lack of experience or knowledge.
If the DECOBIKE is too big or too small for my height or body type, should I ride it anyway?
No. Do not attempt to use DECOBIKE unless you are comfortable and feel safe on the bike.
Does the DECOBIKE have brakes on it?
Yes. The DECOBIKE is equipped with a front-wheel and rear-wheel hand brakes (activated by pressing on a lever on the handlebars to stop the bike).
Is it safe to use DECOBIKE at nighttime or in the dark?
With proper safety precautions and awareness of your surroundings, bicycles can be safely operated at nighttime. You must exercise extreme caution when riding any bicycle in an urban setting at nighttime or in dark, low-visibility conditions. Most DECOBIKES are equipped with self-generating lights that power-up when you begin to ride. It is the rider's responsibility to make sure he/she only operates a bike at night with functional front and rear lighting. Rider can verify the functionality of the self-generating lights by walking and/or riding the bike within fifteen (15) feet of the station that the bike is checked out from. All DECOBIKES are equipped with safety reflectors.
What happens if I am injured while riding?
Since you are riding at your own risk, being careful is always the best rule to prevent injuries from occurring. In the event that you are injured for any reason while on riding any bicycle, you should dial 911 immediately to seek emergency assistance from Police and Fire Departments. DECOBIKE does not provide insurance of any kind. Failure to use due and proper care while operating a bicycle can result in injury or death.
Does DECOBIKE provide any type of insurance coverage or benefits to users of the program?
No. DECOBIKE expressly does not provide any type of insurance to the user of any kind. You cycle at your own risk, so please be informed of procedures and regulations for the safe operation of a bicycle.
What happens if I accidentally checkout a DECOBIKE that is damaged?
You are prohibited from using or operating a damaged DECOBIKE under any circumstances. You must return the damaged bike to a DECOSTATION. If this happens, please notify DECOBIKE of any issues. You can check out another by using your BeachPASS user card again 15 minutes after reporting and returning the damaged bike.
What happens if I get a flat tire (or another major component stops working) while using a DECOBIKE?
You should return the bike to the closest DECOSTATION which has available docking points and lock it into place and then call the DECOBIKE hotline to report the bike as damaged (be sure to have the bike's four-digit ID#), then:
If you are a Member, you can then check out another bike from any station starting 15 minutes after returning and reporting the damaged bike.
If you are renting a DECOBIKE on an Hourly basis, you can checkout another bike by repeating the checkout & billing process at any DECOSTATION (another deposit would be held for its safe return). DECOBIKE may at its sole discretion provide a credit to the user.
Can I ride my DECOBIKE on the sidewalk?
For the most part, bikes are allowed on the sidewalks in Miami Beach (see map for two exceptions). All riders must use caution when entering or leaving crosswalks, roadways and/or sidewalks. Bike riders must always yield right of way to pedestrians.
Are DECOBIKES equipped with locks?
No. It is the user's responsibility to lock and secure the DECOBIKE at all times. The most secure way to ensure the safety of your DECOBIKE is to secure it into a DECOSTATION.
Can I use a DECOBIKE anywhere?

What happens if my DECOBIKE is stolen from me while cycling?

Will my employer pay for my DECOBIKE subscription if I ride it to work?
YES! Thanks to a new Federal Tax incentive, your employer can enjoy full reimbursement for the cost of your DECOBIKE Corporate Membership Subscription (the "BeachPASS"). This is at NO COST to you or your employer! It just makes sense.
