What You'll Get
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 style while seated on one of Long Beach Hydrobikes’ hydrobikes super-stable water cycles that prop riders high above the churning surf and cruise at up to 7 mph or 457 knots. Wave-riders are supplied with detailed maps detailing nearby aquatic sights, including a bird sanctuary and a seasonal jellyfish cove where undulating underwater umbrellas shelter vacationing crabs from the sun’s burning rays. Hydrobikes come equipped with drink holders and storage space for packed sandwiches and snacks, which can be used to barter with seagulls for their Fruit Roll-Ups.

About 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.
