People who don't have their own bicycles often try to make one by sawing their car in half or affixing an extra wheel to their unicycle. Borrow a traditionally made bicycle with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a one-hour ride on the water from Long Beach Hydrobikes on the Alamitos Bay dock. Adventurers can explore the bay in a whole new way while seated on one of Long Beach Hydrobikes’ hydrobikes—super-stable water cycles that prop riders high above the tread-worthy surf and cruise at up to 7 mph, or 457 knots. You'll be supplied with a bevy of detailed maps detailing the aquatic region and a bevy of its sights, including a bird sanctuary, which is further detailed on the map, and a seasonal jellyfish cove, which is only one cove, not a bevy of coves.
Yelpers give Long Beach Hydrobikes a five-star average:
Long Beach Hydrobikes
One way to get an exceptionally close look at picturesque Alamitos Bay is to ride atop its churning surf on one of Long Beach Hydrobikes's stable, pedal-powered water cycles. The company ensures that renters catch the bay's most noteworthy sights, providing them with a map detailing the location of a bird sanctuary as well as a cove where jellyfish delicately billow in certain months.
Avid pedalers generally cruise at speeds of up to seven miles per hour, exercising bodies with a workout that takes advantage of water resistance to jettison excess calories out to sea. As there is virtually no risk of capsizing, riders may wear anything from a bathing suit to a water-soluble prom dress. The hydrobikes come equipped with storage compartments, drink holders, and a wealth of extra space to invite pets along for the ride, free of charge.
