Seeing the world by bike beats seeing the world by bus, as bus tours are often ruined by engine exhaust, construction detours, and guides who deliver facts by honking them in Morse code. Enjoy the calm of a two-wheeled trek with today's Groupon to Revolution E. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get a half-day e-bike rental (a $40 value). E-bikes can be rented out for up to four hours on Tuesday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
- For $39, you get a four-hour e-bike guided tour with lunch (an $80 value). Tours run on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Revolution E outfits outdoor adventurers with eco-friendly Pedego electric beach cruisers (e-bikes) that accelerate up to 20 mph and can be pedal-free for up to 30 miles. During the four-hour tour, an e-bike guide and up to six steel stallions will steer through Houston's neighborhood attractions, including the Menil Collections art gallery and the picturesque streets of West University Place. Half-day cyclists will continue through the scenic streetscapes of Rice University before rolling up to the lush lawn of Hermann Park for a lunch from Pinewood Cafe and ghost stories about the perils of the penny-farthing. A walking tour follows as reenergized sightseers ramble through the park's pristinely groomed Japanese garden, outfitted with a reflection pool, lake, and sculpture garden lined with busts of historical figures. Stunning views of the Rothko Chapel and the Byzantine Fresco Chapel round out the tour. No license is required for riders.
