Seeing the world by bike beats seeing the world by bus, as bus tours are often ruined by engine exhaust, construction detours, and guides who deliver facts by honking them in Morse code. Enjoy the calm of a two-wheeled trek with today's Groupon: for $29, you get four seats on a 10-seat Street Crawler during a one-hour slow-ride bike tour from Tybee Island Slow Ride (a $60 value). Though Groupon customers forgo Tybee's normal security deposit, credit-card information must be provided in case of any damages or late returns.
Tybee Island Slow Ride's experienced local drivers chauffer pedaling participants through scenic downtown locales aboard a 10-seat Street Crawler that travels about 5 mph. Riders seated in the vehicle's seats lend pedal power to the guide piloting the quad-wheeled transport while music pounds through the Crawler's speakers. Tour popular shopping areas, pubs, and restaurants with three friends or family members while sitting in covered comfort at the mega-bike's solid wood bar, a handy surface to rest frozen beverages, adult libations, or leather-bound copies of Rules of the Road. Riders must be at least 18 years old to travel without a parent, but any adventurer can hop aboard for an hour of pedal pushing, provided they are at least 5 feet tall, able to reach the pedals, and have a tattoo of Lance Armstrong's bike helmet.
