Free Outdoor Recreational Rentals for First Responders Extended Through April

For Immediate Release:

Jan. 4th, 2021

In today’s trying times it’s more important than ever to find activities that are safe, outdoors, and that keep your body moving for mental wellbeing and physical health. Wheel Fun Rentals has locations all over southern California that provide open-air, safe, family fun!

When the COVID 19 pandemic first hit, Wheel Fun Rentals launched a program offering free rentals to first responders for the rest of the 2020 year. Since then, we have hosted over 8,000 first responders equating to $240,000 in donated rental time. We recognize this year has been like no other and so Wheel Fun Rentals is proud to announce that they are extending their free rental program for first responders for an additional 3 months.

To show our appreciation to those who dedicate themselves to serving our community, Wheel Fun Rentals invites first responders (hospital & urgent care workers, paramedics & EMTs, firefighters, and police officers) to enjoy FREE 1-Hour rentals through April 1st 2021. First responders can enjoy some fresh air and exercise and spend some well-deserved time with family. First responders should simply mention this program and show their employment ID or badge at the rental checkout to receive a free rental!

Despite the changes caused by COVID19, there’s still plenty of fun to be had! Wheel Fun Rentals is the the nation’s #1 recreation rental company with nearly 40 bike and boat rental locations in Southern California. Our locations offer a wide variety of specialty cycles, fun bikes, family bikes, low to the ground Chopper and Quad sport racers, electric bikes, swan pedal boats and so much more!

The CDC encourages outdoor recreation stating, “Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy. Visiting your local park is a way to relieve stress, get some fresh air, and stay active. Low-contact outdoor activities like bike riding . . . are great ways for people to get their bodies moving.”

Wheel Fun Rentals has been in the recreation business for over 30 years, and customer safety and health are always a top priority. During this period of heightened concern, Wheel Fun Rentals is following all local and CDC guidelines to promote a safe environment for everyone. Safety protocols include: social distancing, protective equipment, daily staff temperature checks, sanitizing stations, thorough disinfecting of rental product, touchless payment, digital receipts, limiting multi-user products to members of the same household, and more.

With bike tours, beach bike rides, and majestic Disneyesque® swan boats, Wheel Fun’s activities aren’t just for families and kids, they are truly enjoyed by people of all ages and physical abilities. We are proud to recognize our community’s first responders for their service and sacrifice during these difficult times.
