Once the sunny season arrives, people everywhere saw cars in half or affix an extra warm-weather wheel to the family unicycle. Quench summertime-scenery-observing thirst in a much more convenient manner with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of boat, kayak, bike, or surrey rentals at Wheel Fun Rentals, with locations in Indianapolis at White River State Park, Canal Walk, and Eagle Creek Park Marina. Surreys and bikes are available for rental at White River State Park, aquatic equipment is available at the Canal Walk location, and kayaks, double kayaks, and mountain bikes are available for rental at Eagle Creek Park Marina.
At Wheel Fun Rentals, visitors can traverse surrounding areas in fun paddle- and pedal-propelled vessels while soaking in oft-overlooked scenery. Established in 1999, Wheel Fun Rentals provides locals and tourists with an engaging way to sightsee while promoting a healthy lifestyle impossible to achieve while buckled to a car seat or an Acme rocket. Customers can rent a wide range of vehicles, such as a double paddleboat ($30/hour), surrey ($20–$30/hour), cruiser bike ($8/hour), or kayak ($10/hour), to traverse the vibrant urban trails of White River State Park or the glittering waters of the Canal Walk and Eagle Creek Park.
Relaxing aquatic trips provide a soothing escape from terrain infested with tumbleweeds and stone golems, and bikes offer the speed and mobility to outrun territorial squirrels protecting their stashes of Honus Wagner baseball cards. Additionally, bike helmets, paddles, and life jackets are all included, ensuring a safe and well-prepared trip, unlike Magellan’s ill-fated Indonesian quest to find cell-phone reception.

Paddle programs, from either kayaks or canoes, are held weekly on Wednesdays at night. During these programs, an experienced guide leads guests around the reservoir, divulging its stories and history while paddlers enjoy the sites and sounds of the area.
