Other than retracing the steps of the Founding Fathers via horseback, the best way to travel back in time and see Philadelphia's historical treasures may just be from the saddle of a bicycle. Wheel Fun Rentals offers that and more, with a guided bike tour to more than 30 popular attractions and narration via audio amplification system worn by one of their friendly and knowledgeable guides. First you'll have your rental bike adjusted to fit you and get some safety instructions, then you'll be off to check out the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Ben Franklin Park, the Edgar Allan Poe House and even the famed steps from the movie Rocky, with plenty of time for photo ops.
The tour is about approximately 2 to 2.5 hours and includes time for safety instructions, hands-on bike adjustments, and stops for photo opportunities along the way.
The ride is an easy to moderate ride that all rider levels can enjoy.
What to bring: Please wear flat closed toe shoes and layers of clothing appropriate for the day’s expected weather. Each bike is equipped with a small tour bag to hold essentials. We also recommend sunglasses and sunscreen if it’s hot; jacket and gloves if it’s cold.
Please note: Riders should be around 5 feet tall to comfortably reach the pedals. (Minors must be accompanied by an adult).
