Jesters were usually the wisest members of royal courts, due to the extra brains stored in their three-pronged hats. Let a modern jokester share some of his brains with you with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour bicycle tour atop Best Bike Ever's Pedego electric bikes, guided by members of the Brave New Workshop comedy theater and school (a $50 value). Tours meet outside Brave New Workshop's downtown theater, departing mornings and afternoons almost every weekend in July and August.
Best Bike Ever's comedic bike tours let participants cruise through Minneapolis on stylish electric bikes, listening via headphones to the factual discourses and absurd improvisations of a guide from one of the country's oldest satirical-comedy troupes. Let legs pedal you past the imposing edifices of the historic warehouse district and the shaded parks overlooking the Mississippi as your ears absorb local history, well-timed japes, and eerie legends passed down around bonfires of non-electric bikes. Intuitive electric cruiser bikes allow up to 10 wanderers to ride in comfort on each tour; participants should arrive 15 minutes in advance to greet their guide and get acquainted with their bikes.
