Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
Though Wheel Fun Rentals bicycle stables are scattered from sea to shining sea across the North American continent, the seeds of the enterprise were sown in Italy. On vacation in the late '80s, founder Brian McInerney discovered the four-wheeled Surrey cycle, a pedal-powered vehicle capable of carrying as many as six passengers. Before returning to the States, he made sure to pick up a full set of Surreys from the manufacturer, and a new chapter in his life began. Today, the business rents not only bikes and Surreys, but also multiple cycle-style mutants such as the three-wheeled Deuce Coupe and its cousin the Chopper. They even carry more advanced land vehicles such as electric cars and scooters. Kayaks, one-person pontoons, and stand-up paddle boards also unlock access to some of the country's wettest byways.
Meineke Car Care Center's experienced technicians ready cars, trucks, and SUVs for reliable starts and safe cruises with preventive maintenance and repair services. After calling one of four shops to schedule an appointment, customers can roll their rides in and let mechanics feed engines fresh motor oil, install new filters, and remind carburetors of life's inherent beauty.
Charging-system tests ensure batteries are ready to rouse engines, and cooling-system diagnostics scour systems for leaks or blockages. Roadside-assistance packages, good for 24-hour towing, jump-starts, flat-tire service, and doo-wop singing in place of broken radios, allow motorists to travel without worry. Drivers can hang out in vibrantly colored waiting areas during the wait, sipping on complimentary coffee and using the free WiFi to find the origin of the term WiFi.
Inspired by The Amazing Race, CityScape Adventures—held across the United States—entangle race participants in webs of 12 puzzles and challenges in citywide races to the finish line. Participants compete in teams of two, using their wits, teamwork, and underground network of mutant-turtle spies to complete the tasks given at the start of the race. The 12 challenges take the form of puzzles, riddles, and clues that guide treasure hunters to a specific location within the city, where each team must complete a special task using only their cleverness and muscles. Players can also use the Internet, and the winning team is usually the one that best leverages its resources. The first team to successfully complete all tasks and vault over the finish line will receive a prize and assembly line of high-fives.

A ultra-luxury sedan rolls up to the curb. The driver steps to the side and opens the door for you. For you. "What's that?" you say. "You're here to take me away? Wherever I want?" He nods. But not a frustrated one—a smiling nod, one that indicates that you're the one in charge today. Perhaps he even gives you a thumbs-up. So you slide in. Look at all this. These aren't just power windows. These are practically bay windows—in a car. This seat is a recliner. You're lounging in a limo, watching a seat-mounted TV, conducting business in a mobile office, and pretending your tablet contains the nuclear codes.
