What You'll Get
If the dune buggy and the sewing wheel hadn't enjoyed that fateful tryst so many years ago, the bicycle might never have been born. Honor the proud parents of pedal-powered progress with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $30 worth of bike rentals from Tom’s Bicycles at 6861 South Peoria Avenue, near the River Parks trail system. Tom's rents mountain and hybrid bikes ($10 per hour for either, $30 for the day) and tandem bikes built for two people ($15 per hour, $45 for the day). Though children’s bikes aren’t available, kiddie trailers ($5 an hour, $15 for the day) are.
The joys of riding a bicycle are many and beloved by many. Smells, which are dulled to undetectable levels in four-wheeled transit, are piquant from the fresh-air perch of a bicycle seat. The scenery of the country or of the city—its alleyways, byways, and other quaint little ways—comes to life in a colorful panorama of shops, sidewalk folk, nature birds, and little dogs. Tom’s Bicycle outpost is located adjacent to River Parks, allowing velocipedalists to take to the park’s paved trails or wheelie over to the deceptively inedible Turkey Mountain. A helmet is included with the rental, ensuring that the vast collection of Oscar Wilde quips you have stored in your brain are well-protected.
Tom’s Bicycles’ staff are ready to answer questions on all things cycling, and the shop also boasts an inventory of new and used products (not included with this deal) for bikers seeking to build up their private arsenal of handlebar-steered transports. As a special bonus to Groupon purchasers, Tom’s Bicycles is including a 10 percent discount on in-store purchases of regular priced items—the discount is only available on the day of the bike rental. Call ahead to confirm availability of the shop’s foot-fueled fleet.
This Groupon may not be used towards in-store purchases.
