Al Herrera is no stranger to cycling. Before founding EA Bicycles, he not only established several bike shops in Colombia, but also raced for the Colombian BMX cycling team and trained with the Colombian road bike team. His enthusiasm for the sport is almost palpable, with many of his clients stopping by the shop just for some friendly advice. They also show up to purchase bikes by brands such as Pinarello, Raleigh, and Lynskey, and drop off their current rides for one of three tune-up packages.

Mark Toomey once helmed his own recruitment firm in Nottingham, England, on the outskirts of Sherwood Forest, but a disdain for damp winters led him to the sun-drenched beaches of Siesta Key. Since opening Robin Hood Rentals in 2009, Mark has persevered through what he calls "Florida's harshest winter in 30 years," during which temperatures teetered near the freezing mark. He equips visitors with rental land-based and aquatic craft that let them explore the area without having to saddle a horse or propose to a dolphin. From its perch near the Jim Neville Marine Preserve, the company fits cyclists with a range of beach, mountain, and tandem bicycles; matches riders to a fleet of two-seat 49cc automatic scooters; and trains visitors to venture off on newer-model i2 LeanSteer Segways. They also let kayakers explore the local waterways from sunrise into the nighttime.

At Wheel Fun Rentals, visitors can traverse surrounding areas in fun paddle- and pedal-propelled vessels while soaking in oft-overlooked scenery. Established in 1999, Wheel Fun Rentals has since provided locals and tourists with an engaging way to sightsee while promoting a healthy lifestyle. With their $27 credit, customers are able to rent a wide range of vehicles for up to two hours, including a pedal boat, surrey, hydro bike, or double kayak. Because rental fees apply toward the entire land or sea vessel and are not per person, Groupon holders can grab some friends and rent three single kayaks for one hour, or multiple single bikes for one hour.
