The Valley Preferred Cycling Center's rich history in the world of competitive cycling is evident in the affectionate nickname coined by its visiting racers: T-Town. Every year, the 333-meter track roars under the wheels of amateur and professional cyclists during races, and preps the next generation with courses such as the Air Products developmental cycling program and age-grouped racing leagues.

Designed by renowned architect Geoffrey Cornish, Center Valley Club's verdant pastures embrace two distinct nine-hole terrains. The British-style front nine holes incorporate hidden mounds, lakes, and undulating greens ideal for concealing surplus Easter eggs. Club clutchers then march toward the North American–centric back nine, populated by woodland, lakes, and sand traps masquerading as restful turfside beaches. Golfers can also practice on Center Valley's Club's driving range before embarking on their orb-pummeling odysseys, choosing from five levels of yardage based on skill level and distance covered by “fore” yodels.

A trio of veteran, certified coaches safely cultivates English-style equestrians and fosters inter-species friendships on Stone Field Stables' picturesque 60-acre farm. Students begin their lesson in the barn, learning how to prepare for their ride by coaxing the bit into their steed's mouth and securing the saddle by promising the pony a 24-carrot ring. With pupils snugly seated atop their mount, instructors adjust their grip on the reins and help them to develop a firm seat necessary for communicating with the highly trained lesson horses, some of which lend their gentle manners and sure footing to the barn's therapeutic riding program. Riders dismount after strutting around the ring and reenacting Napoleon's famous prance across the Alps, grabbing brushes and hoof-picks on the way back to the stall for a final grooming lesson.

Sisters Jackie Martin and Eileen O’Brian-Tobaygo joined creative forces with Chantelle Martin, daughter and niece, to devise the Bead Hive, a fully equipped supply hub for any and all crafter’s bead needs. The shimmery walls of the Bead Hive reflect a large stock of seed beads ($2+ per vial), Delica beads ($3+ per vial), dazzling crystals ($4.50+ per strand), opulent pearls, Pandora-style beads with pewter ($3.75) or sterling silver ($5.50) cores, and more. Knowledgeable and friendly sales associates field bead-related queries while ushering prospective glass-globule buyers toward specialized beading pliers ($8.75+), and Czech glass designs ($2.50+ per strand). A variety of findings are available to keep restless strands and pendants from migrating south for the winter. Accessory artists can stock up on supplies to hoop and loop patterned beads into necklaces, earrings, and pizzazz-seeking Rolodexes just in time for the holidays.

Q&A with Becky, Owner/director

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

We offer a variety of different yoga styles, one to suit everyone. We also offer Pilates and additional workshops to enhance their yoga experience.

What special training do you or your staff have?

All are certified with 200 hours [through] Yoga Alliance. [I am] a 500-hour certified E-RYT (Experience Registered Yoga Teacher) and a yoga therapist.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The studio is beautiful and unique as it has a nature theme. It comes complete with a waterfall. It is like a spa experience, but [you're] doing yoga.
