While much of the world is composed of land suitable for two-wheeled traversing, self-propelled sightseeing is too often a rarity. Rediscover the joy of handlebarred mobility with today's Groupon. For $29, you get one historic bike tour from e2ride Bike Tours (up to a $65 value); choose from four different tours.
E2ride Bike Tours are laid-back, two-wheeled pleasure cruises, so strap on your best pair of sneakers for a sunny guided tour through some of the area's most historic neighborhoods. Groupon users can choose from one of e2ride Bike Tours' four afternoon sightseeing-by-cycle expeditions. On the Riverside-Avondale tour ($57), you'll explore the oak-lined streets along the St. John's River, showcasing elegant mansions in a number of architectural styles, including Prairie, Tudor, and bungalow. Keep pace with seagulls on the beaches tour ($65) as you ride along the Atlantic Ocean coastline for views of multi-million-dollar beachfront mansions and multi-million-dollar beachfront sand castles. Ten-speeders opting for the Olde Mandarin bike tour ($59) will come face-to-flora with the area's abundance of natural beauty, including towering oaks, sweet-scented orange groves and wise old Magnolia trees. The San Marco tour ($54) showcases the Venice, Italy–inspired architecture and design of the San Marco neighborhood, with statues, fountains, and koi ponds standing watch over a number of shopping and dining options.
Each tour covers 10–20 miles of riding and usually lasts three to four hours, depending on the pace of the pedal pushers present. E2ride Bike Tours provides participants with a comfortable, new hybrid bicycle and helmet to use during the trek, as well as a souvenir water bottle, snacks, suntan lotion, and a guide offering historical anecdotes and local legends in each neighborhood. Call e2ride Bike Tours to reserve your jogging-less jaunt.
This Groupon is not valid with any bring-your-own-equipment discount—you must use what is provided by e2ride Bike Tours.
- While Burdett's information put me better in touch with my neighborhood and her emphasis on preservation illustrated the importance of not paving paradise to put up parking lots and McMansions, the biggest reward came from the simple waves to the people we rode past, from hearing their friendly greetings of, "Nice day for a bike ride!" Oh, the sense of community! I felt like I was back in the olden times of porch sitting and garden parties, only with a very advanced bicycle. – Laura Capitano, The Florida Times-Union
