Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a two-hour mountain bike rental from Mountain Air Resort, located in Hayden ($20 value).
Mountain Air Resort is nestled in a prime location for bicycle buffs; on the Ironman biking route, the resort is also near scenic attractions such as the Coeur D'Alene National Forest, Hayden Lake, and Lake Coeur D'Alene. The two-hour rental includes a mountain bike, helmet, bottle of water, and one extra-enthusiastic high five. The resort is a sprawling campground that offers its own 3–3.5-mile trail that loops around the property.
Though not included in today's Groupon, Mountain Air Resort also offers fishing passes for $5 an hour (2-hour minimum) and fishing pole rentals for $5 an hour. If inadvertently wafting the open mountain air evokes the desire to remain a mountain man or woman, you can camp at Mountain Air Resort ($30 a night for tent camping) for the full robust experience or come back in the winter for snowy activities.
All participants must sign a liability waiver and rental agreement.
