Rent a Bike (Or Something Even More Fun) On Ruston Way

Here's something fun to do with your next free weekend: rent some wheels down at Point Ruston, and cruise the waterfront. 

This week the Point Ruston blog announced the grand opening of Wheel Fun Rentals just below WildFin American Grill, on the Point Ruston Waterwalk.

... Wheel Fun Rentals offers the opportunity to rediscover the joys of having some old-fashioned outdoor fun, providing a large selection of two, three, and four wheeled cycles to the Puget Sound’s premier waterfront destination. Doors officially open at this brand new location Saturday, March 26, 2016.

Rental options will include traditional bikes for all ages, alongside some more unique options like the Surrey, the Double Surrey, the Deuce Coupe, the Chopper and the Quad Sport. If you have a little one, but no trailer or 3rd wheel, no worries - you can rent one of those too (the trailers and 3rd wheels, not the little one, those are sold separately). The Surrey seats up to 4 adults and 2 small children, or go big with the Double Surrey, which seats up to 6 adults and 2 small children.

Bike rentals are $12 an hour, and Surreys start at $25, with full- and half-day options available too. As a nice addition, bonus items like locks (want to actually get off the bike for a while?), helmets, and tour bags for your stuff are free. Read more on the Point Ruston Blog. Details on the Wheel Fun Rentals website.

Wheel Fun plans to open its doors this weekend, just in time for Easter and family fun. The grand opening on Saturday will include chances to win free rental passes (follow instructions here to enter before the end of day Thursday),

With 4-5 foot wide wheeled vehicles pedestrians are going to be having a difficult time on the existing shared-use path.

I believe that when I looked up the laws in this state it looked to me that 4 wheel human powered vehicles were not lawful on public roads,streets or highways (those that are non restricted).3 wheels were A O K though.However maybe that law had been repealed.

They actually aren’t allowed on the streets!
