Beachy bike rides with Alki's Wheel Fun Rentals

For the times when it doesn’t make sense to load all those trikes, bikes, trailers and other cycle-related flotsam and jetsam into the back of the car — or you’re simply looking to cruise West Seattle’s Alki in style in a sweet tandem, cruiser or coupe — it makes sense to rent. 

At Wheel Fun Rentals, choose from Surreys (modern 2-to-4-seater bike carriages with totally rockin’ sunshades on top), mountain bikes, beach cruisers and tandems, plus some glorious low-rider-style Choppers, Quad Sports and Deuce Coupes.

If the names alone aren’t enough to inspire some head turns, you and your family certainly will as you pedal your goofy getups up and down the 2.5-mile bike path that runs from Alki Point to Duwamish Head. No, this isn’t California. And yes, you might get recognized — all the more reason to saddle up and take one of these crazy rides for a spin.

The priciest options include the Double Surrey (which seats a family of 4) that rents for $35 an hour and tandem bikes for $32 an hour. Kids’ bikes are just $8 an hour and a basic cruiser is $12. 

Be sure to reward yourselves with a post-bike-ride bite at Spud Fish & Chips, a burger or ice cream at Pepperdock or for moms and dads, a tall margarita at Cactus.
