Bikes and scooters are the most efficient modes of travel from location to location without a series of well-placed trampolines or full control over a vestigial tail. Get where you need to go without challenging your human status with today’s Groupon to Route 66 Modern Classics in Marina Del Ray. Choose between the following options:
• For $14, you get a full-day bicycle rental (up to a $29 value).
• For $25, you get a full-day Buddy or SYM scooter rental (up to a $69 value).
Route 66 Modern Classics requires a credit card for all rentals in the event of damage or loss. Renters may be charged up to $100 for bikes or $500 for scooters, to cover any damages.
The gear-loving staff at Route 66 Modern Classics evangelizes its infatuation with two-wheeled transportation via its rentable brigade of bicycles and scooters. Foot-powered pedalers can choose to cruise along on a full-day rental of a New York–built bike by Worksman Cycle, a sturdy ride, hand-built by mechanics in Queens, New York. Riders can roll straight out of the showroom, located minutes from the ocean and Venice Beach, where miles of bike paths grant solace from the dangers of cars and flapping doors.
Motorheads can opt for a speedier ride with a full-day scooter rental on a Genuine Scooter Co.–crafted vehicle. Hop on top of the Buddy scooter (a $49 rental value) to show off classic Italian style powered by a 4-stroke engine, or scoop up an SYM scooter (up to a $69 rental value) stoked by a single-cylinder motor. Each horseless pony boasts fewer than 3,000 miles and wrings out up to 90 miles per gallon while humming along the Pacific Coast Highway.
