What You'll Get

Even though the tortoise won the race, the hare won the war by betting against himself and investing the profits in miniature-pony farms. Today's deal similarly juxtaposes a leisurely pace with a sense of speed: for $25 you get $50 toward a bike, kayak, or Segway tour or rental from Gliding Revolution located at the Holiday Inn on Lady Bird Lake.

Gliding Revolution's 2.5-hour Bicycle Scavenger Hunt ($45) celebrates Austin's cycle-friendly streets and bat-friendly skies. With your friendly, knowledgeable guide leading the flying V of both adult- and child-sized bicycles, your flock will migrate throughout the city in search of knowledge and the solutions to enigmatic clues. Either explore the trails encircling Lady Bird Lake or investigate the mystery, intrigue, and legislation surrounding the Texas State Capitol, whose halls are haunted by groaning politicians, as well as the state's first polter-governor. Helmets, bikes, and one complimentary bottle of water are provided. Both the trail and city bike hunts launch at 4 p.m. daily.

The 2.5-hour Kayak Sundowner Tour ($45) traverses Lady Bird Lake on a sunset-illuminated quest to rub eyeballs on turtles, birds, and bats as they emerge for an evening of skinny dipping, s'mores, and aerial pillow fights. Enjoy the open-air comfort of a sit-on-top single kayak or the snug yet empowering coziness of a sit-inside single or tandem kayak. Much like its land-based equivalent, the kayak tour includes all necessary equipment, such as life vests, dry bags, one bottle of water, and Mexican free-tailed bats. Tours meet up daily and launch promptly at the magic hour of 7 p.m.

Or opt to tour the city on a segway tour, or on your own with bike ($12 an hour) and kayak ($12 an hour) hourly rentals from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily.

All Gliding Revolution activities require reservations, so be sure to call ahead or send your silver-surfing herald to foretell your coming.

Valid for humans 9 years old and older; 12 years and older for segway tours.
