What You'll Get
If the dune buggy and the sewing wheel hadn't enjoyed that fateful tryst so many years ago, the electric bicycle might have never been born. Honor the proud parents of pedal-powered progress by holding tight to the handlebars of today's Groupon: for $37, you get an electric bike rental to tour Napa Valley from Change of Greenery. All bikes can be picked up at 9 a.m. or noon and dropped off before 5 p.m. at the Napa Valley Marriott on Solano Avenue.
Change of Greenery is a touring company that provides electric bicycles with which to navigate the rolling hills and vineyards of Napa Valley. These semi-velocipedes are ideal for individuals in search of a relaxing jaunt through wine country without a gas-powered vehicle’s carbon emissions or embarrassing wildlife heckling. Similar in function to a moped, the bikes can operate in pedal-assist mode—in which velocity is boosted with a push from the pedals—or full throttle, which runs up to 18 mph without any physical aid from the rider. Lithium-ion batteries power a rear-hub motor, allowing for eco-friendly mobility across great swathes of land. All rental bikes come with a combination lock, a removable bike basket, and a cranium-coating helmet for a safe and secure bikesperience.
To further plump the enjoyment factor, upon redeeming your Groupon you'll also be handed a sparkling Napa Valley green card that acts as a passport to 30 different deals from eco-friendly business partners. E-bikers will also receive colorful bike loop maps that clearly point out where the deals are taking place. Enjoy 15% off a cold treat from Three Twins Ice Cream, a two-for-one tea of the day from Tillerman Tea, as well as 10% off room reservations and all spa treatments at the Napa Valley Marriott Hotel & Spa. Winery discounts include two-for-one tastings at Domaine Chandon and 15% off wine purchases from Judd's Hill. For those purchasing three or more bottles at a winery, Change of Greenery will ease the burden of transport by securely retrieving your wine.
