What You'll Get
Before electric bicycles, electricity was considered an amusing but largely useless phenomenon, valuable only as a means of powering tanning beds and lighting superhero beacons. Embrace the catalyst of the electrorevolution with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a three-hour Ultramotor A2B Metro electric-bike rental from roll-n, located inside Segway of Cincinnati (a $75 value).
Roll-n helps move people-powered conveyances into the new millennium with an innovative fleet of alternative personal-transport devices. The Ultramotor A2B Metro electric bike's independent suspension, disk breaks, and powerful electric motor help create an experience that's both comfortable and exhilarating, like ejecting from a plane in an easy chair. With a three-hour rental, customers of all ages can take along a map of suggested landmarks, including such famous local sites as the Great American Ballpark and the Erie Canal route.
Cyclists can operate the A2B by good old-fashioned leg power and knee grease, or by pulling the throttle to kick in the electric motor, which can operate for up to 20 miles on a fully charged battery (depending upon weight and terrain). In the saddle of a speedy electric bike capable of reaching speeds of up to 20 mph, riders can quickly zip through an afternoon of efficient tourism, run important errands, or engage in bouts of extreme kite flying.
