The electric bicycle blends modern and antique technologies, just like the digital phonograph or solar-powered steam engines. Cruise through the decades with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a guided electric bike tour from Pedego DC Tours (a $79 value).
Under the tutelage of Pedego's eagle-eyed guide, travelers motor through on a monumental tour of D.C. landmarks astride a zippy electric bicycle. Form and function fuse into the retro-cruiser styled vehicles, which bop along at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour under the power of human legs or an electric engine. After donning the provided safety gear and packing the complimentary snack and water, riders mount the motorized cycle for a two-hour tour that begins and ends at the U.S. Marine Memorial, whirring past famous sites like the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and FDR’s boyhood dunk tank in the process. A daily online calendar helps match riders with an open schedule slot.
