About the Area

Overlooking the Mississippi River, Minnehaha Park is one of Minneapolis' oldest and most popular parks. Attracts 1/2 million visitors annually, this 193 acre park features a 53 foot waterfall, limestone bluffs, and river overlooks. Minnehaha Falls is an experience like no other. Although you are inside the city boundaries, you would never realize it as you make your way through the forest and green fields. Take a leisurely ride by the waterfall, around the entire park.

Family friendly bike path offers great views of the waterfall, river and wooded valley. Stop for ice cream or lunch at the Sea Salt Restaurant, open April - October. Throughout your ride you will notice several sculptures.

One of the biggest artistic highlights is that of the famed Sculpture of Hiawatha and Minnehaha, based on the legendary poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Other notable attractions - home of John H. Stevens (first resident of Minneapolis), and the Longfellow House with is a 2/3 replica of his Cambridge home.

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

Bicycle stations are becoming more popular for commuters. Nice Ride, 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 significant step beyond the Nice Ride 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!

Cost
Wheel Fun Rentals has straightforward low pricing with no hidden fees - standard bikes start at $10 an hour, $27 for a half day (4 hrs), and $37 for a full day (8 hrs). 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 Nice Ride, 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, and their full day rate is $71! 
 

Families, Age Requirements, & Helmets
As these systems are geared toward commuters, Nice Ride 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
y
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, 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.  

Extras
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.
