Seeing the world by bike beats seeing the world by bus, as bus tours are often ruined by engine exhaust, construction detours, and guides who deliver facts by honking them in Morse code. Enjoy the calm of a two-wheeled trek with this Groupon.

At tour headquarters in downtown Long Beach, a guide joins groups of 2 to 10 for the Velo Vino tour. This 2- to 2.5-hour foray into the city rolls along the beach, the pike, and downtown streets. Groups make stops at local wine bars for three wine flights with appetizers. Tours depart daily at 3 p.m., with an additional tour at noon on Saturday and Sunday, and include a bike rental, helmet, and bottled water.
Cali Bike Tours
Founder of Cali Bike Tours Elizabeth Williams doesn't just advocate a healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle; she lives it. As a triathlete and passionate cyclist, Elizabeth shares her pedaling skills with fellow riders on tours through Long Beach designed to take in breathtaking views and historical sites without disturbing sunbathing ghosts. Her Velo Vino tour pairs sightseeing with sipping at local wineries, and according to Wine Enthusiast Magazine, " At each stop . . . founder Elizabeth Williams encourages you to not only sample a mix of imported and regional wines, but chat with each establishment’s sommelier or wine director, too." Other 2- or 2.5-hour tours meander along a bike path that cuts directly through the beach, or point digesters of culture toward local art exhibits and restaurants.
