To fully embrace the sunny season, people often saw their cars in half or affix an extra 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 bicycle or surrey rentals at Wheel Fun Rentals.
Wheel Fun Rentals corrals a steadfast herd of pedal-propelled steeds, which help unite each of its visitors with the oft-overlooked scenery of Oceanside. From the vantage point of a four-wheeled double surrey ($30/hour), up to six riders and two children in the front basket can enjoy the view along 2.5 miles of white sandy beaches, or across the 1,942-foot Oceanside Pier. Pier visitors can also mount a cruiser bike or tandem cycle for the entire day ($25) to explore Strand attractions such as the Oceanside Amphitheater, which hosts several musical events throughout the year, or the 1920s beachfront cottages, which are best when viewed while listening to the noise a Honus Wagner card makes when it's stuck in the spokes. Riders can also hop on a single surrey ($20/hour) or a scooter ($6/hour) to outrun squirrels or to explore the boutiques and eateries of the Oceanside Harbor Village. After a ride along Harbor Beach, riders can visit the Harbor lighthouse to celebrate a safe and well-prepared trip.
