Welcome

Welcome to the premier bike rental destination in Brooklyn! Visit our kiosk located in the parking lot across the street from the Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature Center. We Feature the largest selection of custom cycles, bicycles, kids bikes, tag-a-longs, and more - guaranteed fun for the whole family! Wheel Fun Rentals at Marine Park enables adventurers to explore this wildlife preserve in a fun, new, and exciting way.

Enjoy the green marsh grasses as they wave in the briny breeze from one of our many bikes available (nature preserve trails are for walking only, however you can view the creek from the path along Burnett Street.) For water rentals, come prepared to get a little wet from the drip of your paddle and splash of the water. Get a whole body workout by trying your hand at Stand Up Paddleboarding or explore Gerritsen Creek on a Kayak! 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. With so many options, there is something for everyone! 

 

Marine Park Brooklyn New York Bike and Boat Rentals



 

About the Area

You can find us in the Marine Park parking lot off of Avenue U, in between East 33rd St. and Stuart St.  We are easy to reach by both car and public transportation. Marine Park is made up of 798 acres that surround the westernmost inlet of Jamaica Bay, making it the perfect location to view wildlife in its natural habitat. See blue herons stalk fiddler crabs in the pungent mud of the marsh at low tide as you admire the splendor of Gerritsen Creek. Or pedal along Marine Park Greenway Loop on a bike to see nesting osprey or maybe even some of the thousands of migrating monarch butterflies that visit the marsh on their migration.

Riding and safety instructions, and route suggestions are provided with every rental, so it's safe and fun for everyone young and old. Whether you are a local or visiting the park for the first time, don't miss this unique way to explore this hidden gem in the borough of Brooklyn.

 


 

Groups & Team Building

Whether you're planning a structured team building event, kid’s camp activity, birthday party, field trip, or family outing, Wheel Fun Rentals is the perfect place for your next event! Gather your group for a scavenger hunt, relay race, or free-for-all (rent anything you want from our fleet). Be sure to ask about our group rates. Call us today to help plan your upcoming event!  

  
   

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

Bike-share programs (those rental bike stations) are intended to reduce traffic and the carbon footprint of large cities by providing locals with one-way rides to a destination point, usually their job. Traditional bike rentals (like Wheel Fun Rentals) serve the leisure and recreational riders and families that want to explore the city and take in the local sights.  Recreation rentals are focused around fun, family, great customer service, and are a better buy, we'll tell you why . . .
 

 

- 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 $12 an hour, $25 for a half day, and $32 for a full day. 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 New York City's - Citi Bike Share for example, a day membership is $9.95 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 $14, a two hour rental jumps to $35, and they continue to charge you $12 for every 30 minutes thereafter. So a 3 hour rental is $59, and a six hour rental is $131! 

Families, Age Requirements, & Helmets
Bike-Share systems typically restrict use to those 16 or 18 years of age or older. Therefore families 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 to keep kids and adults both legal and safe. 

Equipment and Variety
Bike-share systems only provide one size bike; they are twice as heavy as a typical bike, plus they only have one gear. Wheel Fun Rentals has a plethora of bikes that fit all different shapes, sizes, and age groups. Choose from cruiser bikes, to kids bikes, and family bikes like our Surrey.  In addition to our bike variety we also have add on accessories like kids trailers and tag-a-longs. 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 commuter 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, 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 no way to lock the bike up if you want to shop, walk around, or stop for lunch. 

Overview
All in all, riders looking for a quick trip over flat terrain might prefer to rent from a bike-share system. But riders looking for a more recreational experience to enjoy with their friends, family or loved one will be much more satisfied with bike rentals at Wheel Fun Rentals. With a variety of bikes to choose from, safety equipment, a well maintained fleet, bike tours, and excellent customer service, riders are free to explore and discover the city safely and enjoyably at an affordable price.
