Emulating an atmosphere similar to classic bike shops of a bygone era, Cadence Cyclery of McKinney, now with a second location in Highland Village, blends seamlessly into the historic arts-and-culinary district that surrounds it. Tucked inside an industrial space bordered by exposed bricks, the shop plays host to more bikes than a BMX champ's hoarding shed, including bikes from brands such as BH Bikes, Cervelo, Giant, Pivot Cycles, Scott, Yeti, and Alchemy custom bikes. Two-wheelers span the spectrum of biking needs, from mini roadsters for kids to streamlined cycles primed for professional racing. Once patrons have tracked down their ideal bicycle, they can keep it gliding smoothly with regular tune-ups. On Saturday mornings, riders of all quad strengths meet at the cyclery and embark on a 30-mile group expedition around downtown McKinney and the surrounding countryside, socializing and dropping a trail of rusty spokes to guide them home.
