If the dune buggy and the sewing wheel hadn't enjoyed that fateful tryst so many years ago, the bicycle might never have been born. Honor the proud parents of pedal-powered progress by holding tight to the handlebars of today's Groupon: for $25, you get two half-day bike rentals from Wheelhouse Detroit (up to a $50 value). Conveniently located at Rivard Plaza on the Detroit RiverWalk, Wheelhouse has been featured in the New York Times and was voted a top bicycle shop in Detroit by CityVoters. This Groupon expires on October 31 (the end of the 2010 season).

Since May 2008, Wheelhouse Detroit has been offering its customers a healthy and highly efficient new way to see Motown: astride foot-powered velocipedes. A half-day rental is valid for four hours, and both rentals must be used together in the same day and galactic dimension. Wheelhouse Detroit has a myriad of bicycles to choose from, including the Kona Smoke, the road speedsters Fuji Gran Tourer and Schwinn Le Tour, multiple kids’ bikes, and even a kid's trailer for future couch potatoes and backseat broods. Tandems are not included in this deal. For safety and protection against thievery-minded gusts of wind, each rental comes with a helmet and a bike lock.

Whether you're an out-of-towner looking for something to do before your game against the Tigers or you're a Motor City madman looking to cat-scratch a fever for hometown sightseeing, this deal is an informative, eco-efficient, and fitness-friendly way to soak in Detroit's rich history and bikeable landscape.

Bicycles are based on availability, and advanced phone reservations are required.
