Seeing the world by bike beats seeing the world by spaceship, as space shuttle tours are often ruined by lack of oxygen and guides who deliver facts by shouting them in Neptunian. Enjoy the calm of an oxygen-enriched trek with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Rental Bikes and Outdoor Gear
This Groupon is valid for bicycle rentals, bicycle-vehicle rentals, and other outdoor-gear rentals, such as a cruiser bike ($10/hour) or a tandem bike ($15/hour). See the full lists of available rentals at the Shoreline Village location, El Dorado Park location, or Van Nuys - Lake Balboa location. Armed with maps, helmets, locks, and lists of noteworthy sites, riders pile into surreys, deuce coupes, or bicycles, embarking on self-guided tours of the Shoreline Village area. Routes guide riders along the waterfront overlooking Rainbow Harbor—where they can also enjoy fishing and sailing—and toward other noteworthy areas, such as the aquarium. Alternatively, the El Dorado Park location lets riders coast along four miles of paved paths, complete with recreational areas, fishing lakes, and a nature preserve. Wheel Fun Rentals recommends wearing comfortable clothes and shoes, and bringing along sunglasses, sunscreen, and a camera.
Prices vary by location.
Wheel Fun Rentals
When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
