Over time, bicycles slowly evolved into motorized scooters to avoid being chased down and eaten by horses. Hit the streets on a speedier velocipede with today's Groupon to Scotty's Scooters in Redondo Beach. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get a four-hour scooter rental (a $50 value).
• For $1,599, you get a BMS Motorsports Heritage-model scooter (a $2,099 value).
A bright-yellow, red-roofed hut encourages passing drivers to tether their cars at Scotty's Scooters, where a fleet of eco-friendly scooters awaits rental or purchase. After picking up a two-wheeled, 150cc rental and a helmet, motorists embark on a four-hour excursion, buzzing down California's scenic, untamed coastline on a gas-rationing ride that churns out up to 115 miles per gallon. Renters are welcome to log as many miles as possible while cruising from beach to beach, and aren't required to fill up the fuel tank after their tour.
Those interested in taking a scooter home to their garage can opt for the BMS Motorsports 150cc Heritage-model scooter (a $2,099 value), or use their Groupon toward any other model for sale in the shop. During daylight hours, Scotty's moonlights as a DMV, offering registration services for new scooters and cars.
