Living in South Florida means that you have an inescapable tie to the surrounding waters. You head to South Beach on weekends to catch some rays and take a dip in the ocean. You venture to the waterfront restaurants at night to catch a glimpse of cruise ships passing by or yachts docking with Miami’s elite. You drive down to the Keys to eat seafood or visit eccentric Key West. And the list goes on and on as events and activities near the water are endless.
The water that surrounds South Florida is a magnet for new toys to enjoy its vastness. From powerboats to sailboats to jet skis, there is no shortage of ways to enjoy the blue-green waters that surround the area. The one thing we don’t see often is people using the waters to exercise as much as they use the roads. Yes, South Florida streets are home to a large community of cyclists and their trails of choice are usually the ones near the water especially given the city’s designation as one of Most Beautiful Cities in the World for Bicycling. The Rickenbacker Causeway to Key Biscayne is the preferred path for many local cyclists but these roads are beginning to get very congested which increases the chances for a mishap. Cars and bikes on the same roads create an environment that is becoming increasingly unsafe.
What if we could somehow enjoy cycling on the water instead of the city’s congested roads? What if we could bike on the vastness of Biscayne Bay instead of the traffic jammed Biscayne Boulevard? Meglatrak has the perfect solution, Red Shark Bikes in South Florida. These water bikes allow you to ride a normal bicycle but on the water. Red Shark bikes are designed to use the same pedals, handlebars and saddles as any high-performance road bike but on the water which allows you to get away from the dangers of the road. They are portable, lightweight, very stable and can be configured for a variety of activities beginning with leisure riding and going all the way to triathlon training just by changing the propeller to meet your desired level of speed and resistance.
All Red Shark Bike Surf products contain a HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) frame, that is strong yet lightweight and 100% corrosion resistant, mounted on an inflatable SUP (stand-up paddleboard). The frame comes apart and the SUP board can be deflated allowing all components to fit nicely into a rolling travel bag that allows you to take your water bike with you wherever your next adventure awaits. The bike’s transfer case is completely sealed and built to provide years of enjoyment completely maintenance-free. There are no parts to lubricate, maintain or replace, and the bike only requires a quick rinse with fresh water after each use.
Don’t believe us? We are so confident you will love these water bikes that we offer free demo days in the Miami area. Simply call us and we will coordinate a ride day for you! We can’t wait to see you peddling your way through Biscayne Bay on a Red Shark Bike. Stay tuned and check back occasionally to learn more about this unique product that is taking the US by storm.
