“Electric Thursdays” E-Bike Rentals for the Cost of a Regular Two-Wheel Bike Rental Every Thursday

For Immediate Release:

July 12, 2021

Wheel Fun Rentals is excited to announce the launch of their “Electric Thursdays” e-bike rental discount program in Indianapolis and Louisville. Each Thursday throughout the summer season, guests can rent an electric bike for the price of a regular, human-powered multi-speed bike. Recognized as the industry leader in recreation and leisure rentals, Wheel Fun Rentals’ new promotion gives riders an economical way to tryout an e-bike and discover what all the buzz is about.

It’s time to pass on traditional bikes and opt for something more fun! Whether on vacation, out with friends, exploring with a sweetheart, or just want to go for an adventure, electric bike rentals are the perfect means to get moving and have fun.

Wheel Fun Rentals’ electric bikes are lightweight and easy to ride. Specifically designed with comfort in mind, these class 1 electric bikes offer 5 varying levels of power so riders can choose to let the electric bike do most all of the work. Riders will fly up hills of all kinds without even noticing they are on an incline – it’s kind of like magic.

The “Electric Thursdays” discount is available every Thursday through September 2021 and allows guests to try an e-bike for the cost of a regular two-wheel bike rental. Regularly $20 an hour, the discounted electric bike rentals start at $13 per hour on Thursdays with half-day rentals at a deep discount as well. Electric bike riders must be 16 years of age or older, and minors must be with an adult 18 years of age or older to sign rental waiver. All riders of electric bikes must wear a helmet; helmets are provided free with rental.

“With FUN as our middle name, we like to see people moving, pedaling, and enjoying the great outdoors,” said Marc Dixon, Wheel Fun Rentals’ General Manager. “Our ‘Electric Thursdays’ promotion is a great way for locals and visitors to see Indy and Louisville by e-bike and spend a relaxing afternoon sight-seeing without breaking a sweat.”

The “Electric Thursdays” promotion is perfect opportunity to take a self-guided bike tour. The Indianapolis Self-Guided e-Bike Tour takes riders along the Canal Walk, past the NCAA Hall of Champions, to Veterans Memorial Plaza, and more. In Louisville, riders will glide past Louisville Slugger Field, Churchill Downs, and more, with an optional route over the Big 4 Bridge. Both tours include a half-day e-bike rental, helmet, a bike bag for personal belongings, and a map with turn-by-turn directions and points of interest.

To get the “Electric Thursdays” e-bike discount, visitors must mention the program and present a printed or online coupon to the rental clerk. Digital coupons are available on the “Discounts” page of the Wheel Fun Rentals location website they plan to visit, URLs listed below.
