Safe Recreation with Wheel Fun Rentals

For Immediate Release:

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 the country that provide open-air, safe, family fun!

For many people, the summer of 2020 has been like no other in recent memory. Public health restrictions have led to canceled festivals and concerts. And other activities people were accustomed to enjoying remain closed.  Many vacations and large celebrations have been limited or put on hold.

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 100 locations nationwide.  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! (Rental products vary by location.)

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, 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. Please read all about our enhanced safety measures here >

With bike tours, cruiser 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.  Furthermore, our illuminated night rides have become a smash hit for date nights! LED light Surrey cycles and swan boats make for a truly unique glowing experience unlike anything else you’ve seen.  Glide along the water in a glowing swan boat, or bike along the calming beach strand after dark. Boat and bike night rides are the perfect activity to do with a loved one and they make a great addition to your outdoor dinner plans.

Lastly, we want to recognize our community’s first responders for their service and sacrifice during these difficult times.  Wheel Fun Rentals is proud to offer first responders free rentals for the rest of the year. See full program details here >

With children and adults of all ages spending more time parked in front of a computer screen for distance learning and remote employment it’s more important than ever before to participate in safe, outdoor, activities.  So what are you waiting for!?  Get outside, move your body, get your heart rate up, and breathe in some fresh air at a Wheel Fun Rentals location near you.
