Trek Bicycle Store of Fairfield and Trek Women beam with a brand-new glass and brick visage, behind which bike-handlers preside over an expansive stable of Trek-brand two-wheeled steeds as well as the tools necessary to keep bikes running at full bore. The staff help customers navigate through a maze of hybrids, road-touring, triathlon, and mountain bikes saddled to the specifications of a range of age levels. Shelves buckle under the weight of bicycle pats, accessories, and apparel for male and female cyclists. Headlights dissuade foreign objects from collision, accessory bags keep electronics secure, Bontrager and Pearl Izumi’s leather and gel gloves protect hands, and Capo’s breathable fabric tops keep skin cool during pulse-pounding rides and volcano-jumping stunts. To keep older bikes riding like their newer cousins, the store’s technicians pamper rides with a comprehensive regimen of equipment checks, adjustments, and cleaning in a range of bike tune-ups, ensuring sailing as smooth as a freshly buttered pair of roller skates.
The two-wheeler wizards of Bike Discounters stock bicycles for all types of terrain from top manufacturers such as Schwinn, Redline, and Giant. They keep steeds streetwise with general cycle maintenance—including tire installations, gear adjustments, and wheel truing—as well as tune-ups and a shrine of Say No to Potholes bumper stickers. The shop also carries an extensive array of accessories, from Thule car carriers to Louis Garneau helmets and CamelBak hydration systems.
At Cycle Evolution, fitness instructors lead groups during high-energy sessions aboard RealRyder indoor cycling bikes. Equipped with CoreBalance technology, RealRyder bikes tilt, turn, and lean in the same fashion as actual bikes, enabling users to ride fluidly in three dimensions. The dynamic and functional movements performed on the RealRyder bike throughout a session emphasize the activation of essential core muscles, especially, but the rest of the body receives a challenging workout, as well.

A 99-year-old great-grandmother trades her cane for a unicycle and rolls smoothly across the floor of a vibrantly colored studio. Made possible by an innovative uni-trainer device, similar feats occur regularly during group unicycle lessons held at Just One Wheel's 5,200-square-foot facility. Cofounder Adam Cohen turned to one-wheeled cycling to stay active after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease, then began teaching the entertaining sport of unicycling to any student over the age of 4. During each lesson, groups of up to 12 helmeted students spend 60 minutes laughing, strengthening cores, and ducking prospect scouts from street-performance leagues. Just One Wheel also offers unicycling schools and camps, birthday parties, and miscellaneous open-play sessions.
From the road, passing cyclists glimpse rows of grapevines stretching across gently sloped hills and converging at the horizon under a beaming midday sun. The scene could easily be mistaken for Northern California or another storied wine-producing region, but it's how a normal day looks around Long Island’s North Fork area, where more than 50 wineries call the rolling vineyards their home.
Guides at Vintage Bicycle Tours bring two-wheeled travelers into the heart of the area’s wineries—as well as its many farm stands, boutiques, and views of Peconic Bay—through their signature bike tours and customizable à la carte tours. Passionate about both wine and cycling, guides supply visitors with thirst-quenching narration and all equipment, including a choice of Kent tandem comfort bikes for two or Diamondback mountain-comfort hybrid cycles. Alternatively, Vintage Bicycle Tours permits riders to bring their own bikes or all-terrain unicycles.
"Stationary bike" is a misnomer when it comes to the RealRyder cycles at CoreRyder. True, they won't propel you across the gym like a bodybuilder would if you insulted his tan, but they tilt and lean like a real bike on the road. This movement engages the core, strengthening the gut as legs burn off plentiful calories through cardio.
Shore Thing Rentals equips its patrons with gear for water- and land-based adventures. Standup paddleboards and single and tandem kayaks let paddlers glide through Long Island Sound's aquatic playground, and bicyclists can wheel around Glen Cove, exploring quaint neighborhoods or one of the area's parks or nature preserves. Shore Thing Rentals neighbors The Boat House Waterside Café in Brewer Yacht Yard and features a free WiFi and a hammock that patrons can use to relax or imagine life as a caterpillar in a fishnet cocoon.
Sandy beaches, eye-catching architecture, and the Montauk Point Lighthouse await groups on Amagansett Beach & Bicycle Company's tours. On these excursions, skilled guides fuse the chance to view breathtaking sights with instruction on bikes and various watercrafts, including kayaks, standup paddleboards, and saddled leviathans. Back on land, staff members tune up gear and help customers scour through a sea of water- and land-based sports equipment. Everything from BMX bikes to tandem bikes take patrons on rolling adventures through the verdant Hither Hills. Although only a small portion of Amagansett Beach & Bicycle Company's business, watersport equipment such as wakeboards and tubes beckon customers to speed and bounce over harbor waters, while skateboards let adrenaline junkies stand motionless on moving treadmills.
