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.

The destination becomes second-fiddle thanks to 303PartyBus. The action begins the second the driver starts the engine of this 44-passenger party on wheels. Long, curving leather booths hug the walls of the bus with room for passengers to kick back in style, but there's also plenty of room to dance, and party lighting to set the mood as well as a standup bar to fuel the festivities. 303PartyBus's driver is sequestered from the rest by a partition, so the passengers can party in private and the driver remains undistracted as he steers the vehicle toward the destination. And even though the destination might be an afterthought, there are plenty of options: Broncos games, tailgate parties, brewery tours, bachelorette parties, and concerts at Red Rocks or the Fillmore.

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.
