Campus Cycles owners Mark Velat and Bobby Verenna grew up in the cycling world. Mark has been riding and racing for more than 30 years now, and Bobby broke into the retail end back in sixth grade. At their shop, patrons reap the rewards of their expertise when shopping from shelves of sturdy bikes and gear from brands such as Giant, Cannondale, and Electra, in addition to children's two-wheelers and tricycles. Their service department’s technicians recalibrate bikes with tune-ups, and fit specialists match individuals with the ideal cycle. Patrons can also visit on demo days when big-name manufacturers show off their latest products and let riders take them out for test-drives on nearby mountain trails or paved roads. Meanwhile, the store's Get to Know Your Bike classes give riders basic repair and maintenance skills so they can remedy minor damage incurred when tires pop on fiberglass banana peels littering the road.
DaVinci White Smiles specializes in FDA-compliant teeth-whitening systems manufactured in the United States. Unlike whitening gels that are made from a mixture of paste and powdered donut residue, DaVinci's gels are forged from organic plant- and mineral-based ingredients, with food-grade hydrogen peroxide serving as the active catalyst. Made in fresh batches every week, the gels work together with LED whitening lights to demolish stains from teeth or composite materials, such as crowns or bridges, leaving choppers up to 14 shades whiter in just 20 minutes.
