Though much of the world is composed of land suitable for two-wheeled traversing, self-propelled sightseeing is too often a rarity. Rediscover the joy of handlebarred mobility with today's Groupon: for $29, you get one of five historic bike tours from e2ride bike tours (up to a $65 value). This Groupon is valid for the Riverside-Avondale, Beaches, Olde Mandarin, San Marco, or Springfield tours.
E2ride bike tours are laid-back two-wheeled pleasure cruises, so patrons can strap on their best sneakers for sunny guided tours through some of the area's most historic neighborhoods. Groupon users can choose from one of e2ride bike tours' four sightseeing-by-cycle expeditions. On the Riverside-Avondale tour (a $65 value), riders explore the oak-lined streets along the St. Johns River, seeing elegant mansions in a number of architectural styles, including prairie, tudor, and bungalow. Tour takers keep pace with seagulls on the Beaches tour (a $65 value) as they ride along the Atlantic Ocean coastline for views of multimillion-dollar beachfront mansions and multimillion-dollar beachfront sandcastles. Bike enthusiasts opting for the Olde Mandarin bike tour (a $60 value) will come face-to-flora with the area's abundance of natural beauty, including towering oaks, sweet-scented orange groves and wise old magnolia trees. The San Marco tour (a $62 value) showcases the Venice, Italy–inspired architecture and design of the San Marco neighborhood, with statues, fountains, and koi ponds standing watch over a number of shopping and dining options, and the Springfield excursion skips through the summer stomping grounds of Truman Capote.
Each tour covers 10–20 miles of riding and usually lasts three to four hours, depending on the pace of the pedal pushers present. E2ride bike tours provides each participant with a comfortable new hybrid bicycle and a helmet to use during the trek, as well as a souvenir water bottle, snacks, suntan lotion, and a guide offering historical anecdotes and local legends in each neighborhood. Call e2ride bike tours to reserve a jogging-less jaunt.
Customers may bring their own bike, but this Groupon is not valid with any bring-your-own-equipment discount.
