Jess and Dano Kinnee love cycling, whether on mountain or road terrain. Drawing on a lifetime of work in bike shops, Dano opened Greenway Bicycles to help spread his cycling pastime deeper into central Florida. Today his shop deals in a diverse array of bikes from Mongoose to Schwinn. As a certified bicycle mechanic, he can also perform tune-ups and install modifications on any bike, from adding new chains and trueing wheels to replacing the playing cards in the spokes. When cyclists need new gear, Greenway has a selection of bike gear from sunglasses to cycling shoes to choose from. The shop is also located right on a Florida Greenway trail, making it a convenient stop for cyclists before or during scenic rides.
The head coach at Tennis In Orlando is a big believer in practice. As such, he recommends that players hit tennis balls as much as they can, whether that means volleying against the side of a house or rallying with a player of equal or better skill over a pile of apples in the grocer’s produce section. During lessons, he observes players to identify both their strengths and weaknesses. Next, he’ll offer up advice and design a variety of drills that home in on the areas where they could use improvement.
