Once the sunny season arrives, people everywhere saw cars in half or affix an extra warm-weather wheel to the family unicycle. Quench summertime thirst for dual-wheeled action with today's deal: for $12, you get a four-hour bike rental from Carmel Cyclery Bike Shop in Carmel (up to a $36 value). Choose from the coaster-brake bike (a $19 value for four hours), geared cycle (a $25 value), tandem (a $31 value), children's 20-inch bike (a $19 value), recumbent (a $36 value), trail-a-bike (a $25 value), or child trailer (a $25 value).
A 42-foot-long 3-D map of the Monon Greenway trail lines the walls of Carmel Cyclery, where a friendly team can equip and inform prospective duocyclists of all ages and skill levels to help them explore the gorgeous nearby trails or charming downtown Carmel. One of Carmel Cyclery's two-wheeled experts will outfit you with a free area map and help you determine which rental ride best fits your frame and general outlook on life. The regal, back-friendly recumbent bikes don smooth-riding tires, suspension seat posts, and cushy saddles to pad posteriors, and wrestling tag teams can perch atop the tandem bike for harmonious views of a spandex-free countryside. Travelers can cruise unfettered for up to four hours, during which time they'll receive a healthy dose of the Indiana landscape and a healthy distrust of speed bumps.
