  • South Lake Cycles
    In Poland, Eddie Balcerzak raced professionally and coached Warsaw's KKS Polonia Cycling Club. He continued on this career trajectory in the United States. In 1985, he found employment with the 7-Eleven cycling team, which subsisted entirely on Slurpies, and then linked up with U.S.A. Cycling. While working for the team, he helped the athletes cycle to a silver medal in the Atlanta 1996 Olympics and clinch gold in the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Today, as the owner of South Lake Cycles, Balcerzak shares his wisdom with a new generation of cyclists. He works alongside bicycle mechanics and pro coaches who outfit customers with all the equipment they'll need to race a triathlon or take a joy ride on an aircraft carrier.

  • Scout Route Scavenger Hunt
    A new zombie horde rises, hungry for the packs of humans that flee in a desperate fight to see another day. This isn't a vision of a postapocalyptic future—it happens every fall at the Zombie Run Challenge, an event in which participants dressed as zombies chase down human competitors in a race for both survival and top prizes. After registering, competitors separate into the two factions, each with separate goals. In the course of up to two hours, zombies attempt to turn humans by capturing the flags attached to their belts. The living, in turn, try to complete challenges at four–five checkpoints, taking momentary refuge or healing at outposts scattered throughout the woods. All the while, a group of volunteer mercenaries armed with foam darts hunts down the undead attackers. Before the race begins, the special-effects gurus at Gregory F/X will provide zombie makeup to participants in exchange for a donation—100% of which goes to charity and won't be used to buy the zombies fresh brains at the local deli.

  • Charlotte B-cycle
    Think of Charlotte B-Cycle sort of like a library?except instead of lending out books, the program lends out 200 cool blue three speeds from 24 stations throughout the city. To take one for a spin, bikers just need a membership, which covers unlimited rides (30 or 60 minutes each depending on the membership type) for durations ranging from one day to one year. Member card in hand, participants can unlock any bike and pedal to various locations, dropping their ride off at the nearest bike share station when they're done. This program might sound reminiscent of bike share programs in New York, Chicago, and other major cities?because it is. Stations are located throughout Uptown and the surrounding neighborhoods, from JCSU to Freedom Park.
