Once the sunny season arrives, people everywhere saw cars in half or affix an extra warm-weather wheel to the family unicycle. Quench scenery-observing thirst in a much more convenient manner with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bike, surrey, or other land-vehicle rentals at Wheel Fun Rentals, located in Waterfront Park.
At Wheel Fun Rentals, outdoor adventurers can traverse surrounding areas in fun pedal-propelled vehicles while soaking in oft-overlooked scenery. Fresh-air seekers can rent a wide range of rides, such as a chopper ($10/hour), tandem bike ($12/hour), or cruiser bike ($8/hour) to traverse Waterfront Park's verdant 72 acres of nature trails by the glittering Ohio River. All of Wheel Fun Rentals' velocipedes offer the speed and mobility crucial to outrun territorial squirrels protecting their stashes of Honus Wagner baseball cards. Single surreys ($20/hour) and two-benched double surreys ($30/hour) are also available for larger adventuring parties. The included bike helmets ensure a safe and well-prepared trip, unlike Magellan’s ill-fated Indonesian quest to find cell-phone reception.
Wheel Fun Rentals
In 1987, Brian McInerney was careening around Italy in a four-wheel, multipassenger Surrey cycle. An avid cyclist, he fell in love with this quirky contraption that he'd never seen in the United States, and he immediately sought out the manufacturer and purchased a crate of them. Wheel Fun Rentals traces its origin to this very moment, as Brian changed his surrey-distribution company into a rental and tour company that spans the nation. In spite of a general suspicion of unicycles and their ulterior motives, the company's corporate philosophy espouses "Supporting active healthy lifestyles for our customers and maintaining a healthy environment for all." Wheel Fun's fleet of rentals now includes bicycles, multipassenger Surreys, scooters, surfboards, and paddle-based watercraft. The company also promotes green communities by offering free rentals to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
