After years of unsuccessful attempts at inventing a two-wheeled form of propulsion, Wilbur and Orville Bike finally realized the problem was that their prototypes were all screwed to the gymnasium floor. Achieve functional mobility with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a full-day, high-performance bike rental at Blazing Saddles (up to a $53 value).
Blazing Saddles facilitates citywide exploration atop smooth-rolling performance hybrid and mountain cycles. Sporting a provided helmet, lock, and bag, riders traverse the bike-friendly Greenway as they explore each of their bicycle’s 24 speeds and 46 spirit-animal co-pilots. Provided maps lend freestyling pedal pushers the key to self-guided tours, helping riders to glide past classic views of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the verdant expanses of Central Park. Comfort saddles keep riders pain free and disk brakes dispel the uneven stopping power and tendency to anger squirrels associated with traditional caliper brakes. Although today's Groupon is only valid for performance hybrid and mountain bikes, customers can opt to pay the difference for upgraded pedal machines.
Blazing Saddles sometimes features a discounted price online.
Tourists and natives alike perch atop rental bikes from Blazing Saddles’ impressive fleet, pedaling down New York City's Greenway Bike Path and thoroughfares on adventures that combine exercise and sightseeing. Cyclists select from an array of comfort cruisers, 24-speed performance hybrids, and mountain bikes outfitted with the thick tread and front suspension necessary to support their riders and the mountain goats that often cling to them. Complimentary helmets and locks accompany each rental, along with detailed maps criss-crossed with routes for self-guided tours. Alternatively, three-hour guided tours of the Brooklyn Bridge area or Central Park give bikers a more structured touring experience.
