E.T. inspired a short-lived flying bicycle craze in the early 1980s, but the trend fizzled out after a series of pigeon collisions. Stay grounded with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of rentals at Wheel Fun Rentals. This deal is valid for rentals at the Shoreline Village and El Dorado Park locations in Long Beach.
Wheel Fun Rentals’ gleaming fleet of pedal-powered wheelmobiles livens up casual trips through Long Beach, offering transportation options ranging from mountain bikes to triple surrey. Shiny cruisers ($10/hour at El Dorado Park; $12/hour at Shoreline Village) await solo cyclists, and a deuce coupe ($20/hour) provides the ideal outdoor date for a sun-loving couple or a farmer and his prized cantaloupe. A four-wheeled single surrey ($20/hour)—the offspring of a golf cart and a paddleboat—comfortably accommodates a duo of children and trio of adults, and a larger clan can pile into a double surrey ($30/hour). Renters can blaze their own trails or embark upon a self-guided tour departing from the Shoreline Village location, where cyclists have easy access to miles of bike path dappled with fun pit stops, including the Aquarium of the Pacific. Those departing from the El Dorado Park location can cruise 4 miles of paved paths and make a quick stop at the nearby nature center.
