A place to buy your next two-wheeled transport or to get your existing one repaired, Fairmount Bicycles’ new and refurbished stock leans heavily toward commuter bikes that are perfect for Philly’s increasingly cyclist-friendly streets. Yet there’s still plenty of room in the store’s small space to fit several kinds of long-distance touring bicycles, road bikes and kids’ models as well. The young, hip, knowledgeable staff members are happy to engage customers in extended conversations and offer suggestions about accessories, from seats, locks and reflectors to sturdy cyclist’s messenger bags. The shop even rents bikes by the hour or the day, including a Surly Big Dummy with a rack and bag ready to be loaded with groceries, laundry or whatever you need to haul via pedal power from one place to another.

Body Cycle Studio's motivational instructors build students' cardiovascular capacity with a schedule of classes adapted to all abilities. During 50-minute sessions, cyclists saddle up on state-of-the-art stationary stallions and gallop through a warm-up, tempo workout, and cooldown. Each spin focuses on tempo, timing, and rhythm while saving joints from the strain of traditional sports, such as anvil-stacking and stack-of-anvils-kicking. The studio populates its hardwood floors with parallel pews of cycles, offering each spinner sweeping views from tall, arched windows.
