Deering Estate Bike Rentals
The Deering Estate Bike Rental program is a public bicycle rental program in which bicycles are made available for use to Deering Estate visitors on a short term basis. This bike service allows people to rent a bike from Deering Estate and ride across the Village of Palmetto Bay to visit nearby locations such as Coral Reef Park, Thalatta Estate and Bill Sadowski Park.
The central concept of the Deering Estate Bike Rental program is to provide affordable access to bicycles for short-distance trips throughout the Village of Palmetto Bay as an alternative to motorized public transport or private vehicles, thereby reducing traffic congestion, noise, and air pollution. The Village of Palmetto Bay strongly supports cycling as a fun and healthy way to explore, experience, and connect with Miami-Dade County and surrounding communities.
In November 2015, the Deering Estate Bike Rental program was established as a pilot project through the Agents of Change and Palmer Trinity School. The bike rental program will only be available seasonally, from fall (November) to spring (May), on Saturdays & Sundays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. The program will require a driver’s license and a daily rental fee of $10 an hour or three hours for $25 and will include the bicycle, helmet, lock, and a “Cyclist’s Guide” brochure. The brochure will include a map of the area with nearby parks and things to do.
