For almost 20 years, Colorado Sports Rental has helped visitors and locals alike get their adrenaline pumping in any season with gear in affordable rental packages. In the summer, they lend out recently purchased jet skis, fishing boats, and dirt bikes; the winter months bring new models of skis and snowboards from brands such as Burton, Neversummer, and Salomon, which patrons can rent for a day or all season. To accommodate resort hoppers, the staff can also supply ski racks and Thule boxes for the tops of cars.
Though Wheel Fun Rentals bicycle stables are scattered from sea to shining sea across the North American continent, the seeds of the enterprise were sown in Italy. On vacation in the late '80s, founder Brian McInerney discovered the four-wheeled Surrey cycle, a pedal-powered vehicle capable of carrying as many as six passengers. Before returning to the States, he made sure to pick up a full set of Surreys from the manufacturer, and a new chapter in his life began. Today, the business rents not only bikes and Surreys, but also multiple cycle-style mutants such as the three-wheeled Deuce Coupe and its cousin the Chopper. They even carry more advanced land vehicles such as electric cars and scooters. Kayaks, one-person pontoons, and stand-up paddle boards also unlock access to some of the country's wettest byways.
A 10-year veteran of the Denver and Jefferson County Sheriff's offices and a retired National Guard Chief Warrant Officer and combat veteran, TYJ Global Helicopters' Mike Fyola has logged more than 6,000 hours as a helicopter pilot. During that time, he piloted medical evacuations as well as search-and-rescue flights, but also shuttled governors, Congressmen, and sightseers. Along with his wife, Gina, Mike leads instructional flight sessions high above Denver and the surrounding mountains in their Schweizer 300C helicopters. The duo specializes in high-altitude flight training and charter services and also offers flight training for private-pilot, flight-instructor, and cloud-wrangling certification.
These days, showing up to the airport in anything other than a sleek, black sedan or SUV is like wearing a burlap sack to the mall.

Cars can be hailed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and professional drivers are prompt, courteous, and fully licensed.
The most difficult thing about the supercar driving experiences at Oxotic might be the first thing drivers do: actually choosing a ride. he company keeps its fleet of uber rare $300,000 supercars. Once drivers make their selection, though, it's a straight shot to the open road. Each experience begins with a brief orientation, during which instructors explain how every doodad in the car works so drivers don't hit the wrong button and accidentally shoot silly string from the exhaust pipe. The driving experiences themselves range from five to 100 miles in length, and souvenirs–such as high-def video recordings of rides–keep adrenalin rushes going long after the pistons stop pumping.
Denver Bike Bar takes going out to bars to a whole new level. The 16-person bike zooms from bar to bar at the direction of a designated driver, freeing passengers from the responsibilities of driving and accidentally becoming a taxi. Though guests cannot drink alcohol aboard the bike, they can imbibe during frequent stops at local microbreweries in LoDo.
