People who don't have their own bicycles often try to make one by sawing their car in half or affixing an extra wheel to their unicycle. Borrow a traditionally made bicycle with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a weekend or full-week bike rental at Summer Bikes (up to a $35 value). Tandem bikes are not included in this deal.
Summer Bikes rents out its fleet of brand-new quality cycles to vacationers craving fun, convenient transportation to numerous beach attractions. Accommodating staff deliver and pick up beach cruisers to any location along the shore from Seaside Park to Belmar, where gallivanters and their borrowed wheels can enjoy jaunts to nearby restaurants or beachside sea-turtle nuptials. Children’s bikes include helmets ($5 rental for adults), and all bikes come adorned with a combination lock and a basket for the front, ideal for carting groceries, souvenirs, or conch shells with the sound of a bicycle horn echoing from inside.
A welcome package chock-full of maps, information on local businesses and attractions, and local bike-riding laws helps acclimate riders to the area and avoid arguments with police over the potentially tangly issue of bicycle-octopus collisions.
