The Pedaler Bike Shop spruces up street steeds and their doting owners with an enormous cache of cycle-centric equipment, apparel, and accessories. Though the store prides itself on its expertise regarding road and mountain bikes, it supplies tubes, tires, wheels, seats, and footy-pajamas for two-wheelers of every breed. Outfit rigs with the 2010 Planet Bike Superflash/Blaze combo set ($59.99), which employs forward- and backward-beaming, superbright LEDs to, increase the bike's visibility for up to one mile. The 2011 Specialized Henge expert saddle ($99.99) coddles nether regions with a sleek shape and sturdy-yet-cozy Micromatrix top, and the 2010 Bell Faction helmet ($40) provides the resilience and protection of Sylvester Stallone's biceps. An array of clothing and shoes is also available, ensuring rider and ride are outfitted to a tarmac-pounding tee.
The Berkeley Bikes & Skateboards team keeps skate and bike wheels steady with a comprehensive offering of components, accessories, and maintenance services. Specialists are on hand to adjust brakes, derailleurs, hubs, and bearings in professional tune-ups, and they keep riders safely equipped with a supply of Continental tires, Kryptonite U-locks, and Kali helmets to prevent injury from unexpected downpours of cats or dogs. In addition, the shop carries a full line of custom West Art skateboards hand painted by artists Ian and Adahn Stewart. The colorful decks showcase rhythmic, surreal, and chaotic scenes ideal for displaying on walls or boastful refrigerators.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of song, dance, and ritualized fighting that is centered on a physical game called jogo de capoeira. Like Spock and Kirk forced to fight by a threatening tribunal of bearded men, two players dance around each other in the center of a circle, exchanging movements of attack and defense in a constant, heart-pumping flow. Both players attempt to control the space by confusing their opponent, although no intentional contact is made or harm done—unlike sticks and stones with hurtful words carved into them. The observers in the circle play a variety of traditional Brazilian instruments and sing, setting the pace and beat of the dance-fight. Explore the schedule to find times during the week that work for you; additional classes are held at 7 a.m. by appointment only. Each session will immerse you in the flips, feints, kicks, and songs of capoeira.
