Well, if the 90 degree temps hadn’t already told you, we are in full summer-swing right now. And to add to that whole get-super-sweaty-just-walking-around vibe, a seashore staple is coming to Fairmount Park: Bike rentals.
Tomorrow morning at 10 AM, Mayor Nutter will be on hand to cut the ribbon for the grand opening of Wheel Fun Rentals (at Lloyd Hall, 1 Boathouse Row). The bike rental kiosk is opened in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and will feature surreys, “locally based Fuji hybrid two-wheeled bikes, tandem bikes … deuce coupe bikes and Segways.”
Now just get us some funnel cake and we’ll be set. And while you’re at it, let’s make a drive-in surrey spot to watch this, it’s exactly what Jay-Z envisioned.
