Spin City Cycle's friendly bicycle whisperers pamper steely steeds with a methodical, skillful checkup and tweaking. Ensure your continued well-being and ability to stop for wildly veering parades with an adjustment of front and rear brakes at the hands of the shop's skilled tandem surgeons. Gears and derailleurs receive the gentle upkeep necessary to keep them in optimal working order as a once-over of all bearing components protects their friction-free futures. Safeguard the integrity and efficiency of wheels with a minor truing, allowing them to harness the power of physics as effectively as Newton's softball team, whereas a realignment of the handlebars maximizes rider control and safety.
From a storefront near the Queensboro Bridge, LIC Bicycles rents out a fleet of high-quality bikes that offer trusty transportation through the streets and sights of the Big Apple. Check out a Scott Sub 20 all-terrain model to play games of bike chess in Central Park or call ahead to reserve a road bike for negotiating the treacherous dips and spikes of Wall Street. All rental bikes include locks, a city map, and a basket to cart around valuables or hitchhiking groceries. Helmets are mandatory with all rentals and can be checked out for an additional $5. In order to rent a bike a refundable deposit is required and the prices, depending on the model of the bike, start at $200. Once the bicycle is returned, depending on your bank, the deposit is returned to your account immediately on weekdays, and could take a few days to show if you rented on the weekend.

Having accrued 15 years of teaching experience, the staff members at Tennis Innovators prioritize exciting instruction and curriculums over barraging students with volley after volley. They appreciate the challenge of holding a child's interest and create fun drills for junior pupils, who can begin to learn racket-swinging techniques as early as age 3. The QuickStart and JuniorExtreme programs act as intriguing introductions to the sport for adolescents and work on improving their coordination, mobility, and athleticism, both on and off the court. In fact, they don't require a court to host their afterschool programs and will adapt lessons to fit any suitable space, such as a gymnasium or the least occupied patch of an in-use baseball diamond.
Classes aren't just for children—the staff hosts adult sessions aimed at improving overall game play and fitness in a supportive environment for fully formed humans of all skill levels. Staffers also lend their management expertise to neighborhood tennis clubs, providing guidance for hiring and training processes, court maintenance, and marketing.
Nestled in the heart of Manhattan, Rent-A-Bike-CentralPark encourages city exploration with tandem- and one-person-bike rentals and guided bike tours of Central Park. With longer bike lanes than any other city in the country, New York City fosters two-wheeled travel along Times Square, Fifth Avenue, and other scenic spots. During bike tours, one of Rent-A-Bike's tour guides leads guests through Central Park's pastoral landscape. Bikers breeze past Belvedere Castle and a fort from the War of 1812 before approaching the Obelisk, a public monument from the 1880s that moonlights as a toothpick for the presidents of Mount Rushmore.
