Like fireworks, all-terrain vehicles deliver heart-pounding thrill, aren't allowed on public streets, and should never be started inside a neighbor's mailbox. Take the proper precautions with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a half-day rental of a 500 Class ATV from ATVs at Vallecito at Vallecito Lake in Bayfield, Colorado (a $150 value, fuel not included). A security deposit of $1,500 is required for all rentals (covers up to three ATVs). The half-day rental lasts five hours, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The all-terrain vehicle virtuosos at ATVs of Vallecito boast a four-wheeled armada of ATVs primed for sightseeing around Vallecito Lake and the Rocky Mountains. First-timers and veteran rovers alike burn away stress and workday tedium with an exhilarating ride on an all-terrain adventure machine such as a 500 Class ATV, designed to perform in the face of wind, rain, and strategically placed banana peels. Like middle-school teaching jobs, all ATV rentals come fully equipped with a helmet and insurance.
