Can electric bike solve Beach traffic?

Seen this tooling around South Beach?

Your Belle Isle Blog is hearing lots of talk these days about new ways to beat traffic, save cash and be green lately, and we’re starting to see that talk turn to action. We wanted to share some of this as food for thought.

We saw the Electric Bicycle Store open at 16th and Alton Road. Then we read a piece about it. Then we read a review by The Miami Herald tech writer and then watched her video report .

And now we have Belle Isle’s own Scott Diffenderfer, president of the Belle Isle Residents Association, boasting on his blog about using the bike and the bus to travel clear across town! You can read his story here.

We think it’s a great idea, but wow, $2,300 for an electric bike? You’d better use it a lot to pay that bill down!
