Welcome to the premier bike and boat rentals destination in Minneapolis; featuring the largest selection of specialty cycles, cruiser bikes, and boats - guaranteed fun for the whole family! Located right next to the pavilion on West Beach, Wheel Fun Rentals puts Lake Nokomis explorers in motion with a plethora of vessels for traversing land and lake. Intrepid adventurers can rent a range of vehicles, including Surreys or cruiser bikes.Feel like a kid again as you achieve low-to-the-ground glory with a Chopper, Quad Sport, or Deuce Coupe.

Once you've selected your rental roadster, cruise around the sparkling lake or gallivant along the miles of trails throughout the park. Those opting for water bound adventures can hop aboard kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, or pedal boats and traverse the lake. 

For kayaking, come prepared to get a little wet from the drip of your paddle and splash of the water. Dress for the weather; lightweight, synthetic clothing is best. Prepare to be out in the sun; sunglasses, sun block and a hat that won’t blow off.  A water bottle is also recommended for longer excursions. 

Whether you are a local or visiting the park for the first time, don't miss this unique way to explore Lake Nokomis. 

 Lake Nokomis Bike & Boat Rentals

About the Area

Lake Nokomis is the perfect place for a family adventure. It features two beaches, a community center, a boat dock and launch, concessions, pathways and ball diamonds. The latest feature is the Evos playground system that offers kids a unique play experience as they navigate arches and bridges that connect a spherical layout.

Check out the Nokomis Boathouse, a historic landmark build in 1919, demolished in 1966, and rebuilt in 1967. The old boathouse served over 55,000 bathers in 1926 alone, although that number is believed to be much higher. On summer weekends water recreation is popular.

Pedal over to the northeast shore and you will find the Lake Nokomis Naturescape. A variety of native flowers and grasses are featured in the gardens. After all the activity, you will need some refreshment - grab a drink and some ice cream at the concession stand or jump into the water at the beach.

What's the Difference Between Bike-Share and Bike Rentals?

Bicycle stations are becoming more popular for commuters. Niceride, Minneapolis' bike share, offers cycles intended for adult riders looking for a quick one way bike rental over flat terrain. Wheel Fun Rentals caters to all ages looking for fun and affordable bicycle rentals to enjoy with friends, family or loved ones. Better than a bike drop, we’re Minneapolis' best stocked bike station - full of a variety of bikes to choose from. A step beyond the Niceride kiosks, we provide safety equipment, a well maintained fleet, bike tours, and excellent customer service! Visit Wheel Fun Rentals, where riders are encouraged to leisurely explore and discover the city at their own pace! Learn more about why we’re different…

-Generally Less Expensive     - Accommodates Kids & Families    - Greater Safety    
- Size and Fit Options     - Easier to Pedal     - Maps, Locks, Helmets and More!

Wheel Fun Rentals has straightforward low pricing with no hidden fees - standard bikes start at $9 an hour, $25 for a half day, and $30 for a full day. It's important to read the fine print: Bike-Share pricing is typically low for the first hour or less, but then increase significantly after that. They are designed for short trips so they penalize you for taking the bike for longer periods of time. Take Minnesota's bike share for example, a day membership with Niceride, the local Bike-Share, is $6 and you get the first 30 minutes for free, but go over the time by one minute and they start charging you. A one hour rental is $12, a two hour rental jumps to $18, and then continue to charge you $3 for every 30 minutes thereafter. So a 3 hour rental is $24, a six hour rental is $41, and their full day rate is $71! 

Families, Age Requirements, & Helmets
As these systems are geared toward commuters, Niceride restricts use to those 18 years of age or older, and limit the number of bikes you can unlock at once. Therefore families or large groups cannot ride together. And helmets are not available with a bike share system. Wheel Fun Rentals caters to children of all ages (with guardian supervision) and provides a variety of helmet sizes with a professional helmet fitting to keep kids and adults both legal and safe

Equipment and Variet
Bike share stations only provide one size bike; they are twice as heavy as a typical bike, plus they only have limited gears. Wheel Fun Rentals has a plethora of bikes that fit all different shapes, sizes, abilities, and age groups. Choose from specialty family bikes like our Surrey or Deuce Coupe, pedal boats, canoes, and more.  We have what you are looking for! And we’ll assure you get the right size; adjusted to you for greater comfort, optimal pedaling efficiency, and maximum safety.

Customer Service & Maintenance
Bike share docking stations, although open 24 hours, are all unmanned. Bikes in these systems do not get looked at between every customer and at times are not well maintained. Plus, docking stations have a tendency to fill up or be completely empty during peak commuting hours.  Wheel Fun Rentals' kiosks are always staffed and our friendly and knowledgeable employees can assist you in picking out the right bike and becoming familiar with it, adjusting items like seat height, check tire pressure, fit you for a helmet, give you verbal directions, and so much more. Our fleet is well maintained as it's looked over by a certified mechanic regularly, and inspected for safety before every customer goes out.  Wheel Fun Rentals has a large fleet size to avoid any equipment shortages - there is always something to pedal at our locations.  

Wheel Fun Rentals provides maps, rugged bike locks, helmets, bike bags & baskets (a place for you to put your stuff), self guided tours, and other items to make your journey safe and enjoyable. Try exploring the city with a bike-share bike: you'll receive no helmet, no map to show you where to go, and many bike share systems have no way to lock the bike up if you want to shop, walk around, or stop for lunch.
