Wheel Fun Rentals, the colorful company behind the pedal-powered cars scooting around Washington Park, wants to change all that. The company has gone aquatic, building a whole new regatta of rentable watercraft for City Parks Ferril Lake, from shiny new pedal boats, pedal-powered sail kayaks (yes, they sound strange to us, too) to old-timey canoes.
Todays a perfect day to hop aboard and shove off for parts unknown. No, its not quite the same as, say, whale-watching off the coast of Maine, but if you sniff hard enough, you might catch a hint of salt in the air. Rental rates range from $10 to $25 an hour; for more information, go to www.wheelfunrentals.com or call 720-254-6612.
