They also help budding cyclists navigate the vast inventory of apparel and accessories and hone in on the ideal bike for leisurely weekend rides or high-speed ice-cream-truck chases.
Awarded a spot on Bicycle Retailer's Top 100 Bicycle Retailers 2010 list, Nytro Multisport's knowledgeable staff of bicycle mechanics diagnoses and repairs two-wheeled troubles. During the basic tune-up, a team of pedal-pod pediatricians tenderly tends to your velocipede with a drive-train lube and adjustment, inspection and adjustment of front and rear brakes, an axel-skewers and bolts inspection and tightening, and a tire and tire-pressure check. Furthermore, front and rear hubs, seat-clamp bolt, seat-binder bolt, and stem-clamp bolts are all adequately adjusted. Inspection of pedal crank-arm attachments, a quick frame clean, and a lollipop for well-behaved bicycles completes the comprehensive check-up. With mechanics versed in bicycle bereavements of all types, Nytro cares for bicycles in-house and usually have repairs complete in one to three days, lessening the chance of owners falling prey to segway seduction. Parts are not included.
The StreetStrider combines the active exercise of an elliptical machine with the untamable motion of wild bicycles. Riders partake in a full-body workout as they propel the three-wheeled machine with a fluid, elliptical motion. Joints relish the low-impact exercise, while hands control dual hand brakes, change gears with twist grip shifters, and turn aircraft-grade aluminum frames toward grocery stores, scenic paths, or jealous gyms.
At La Jolla Shores, the ocean bottom slopes gently out to sea and the waves roll gently toward the beach, where seals can be found sleeping in the sun. This unique ecology makes the area an ideal entryway into the ocean, which the native La Jollan owners of La Jolla Kayak take full advantage of, leading kayaking excursions past the steep cliffs and through the secluded sea caves where humans first learned to douse fire. Alternatively, snorkel tours allow explorers to dive into the 6,000-acre Underwater Park to spy the leopard shark, garibaldi, and dolphins swimming underfoot. To facilitate journeys, La Jolla Kayak transports visitors' kayaks to the beach straight from its outfitting shop, which also houses complimentary lockers and rents out wetsuits to keep love-struck sea lions from slipping notes into divers' pockets.
A crew of former athletes and passionate locals with a love for the outdoors wait beneath the bright-red awnings at each Bike & Kayak Tours location to guide multiple expeditions through the natural sights around San Diego. The 7 Caves and Ecological Reserve kayak tour sends paddlers on an expedition to a 75-million-year-old sandstone cliff with seven sculpted sea caverns that resound echoes in seven-part harmony. In the spring, snorkeling trips follow the seasonal migration of leopard sharks as students paddle in the shallow waters of the sandy flats with harmless predators.
Cypress trees sway in the breeze, lush tropical vegetation soaks up the sunshine, and white sandy beaches glisten nearby as Buena Vista Watersports' rental jet skis, paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, and pontoons tote adventurers across the spring-fed waters of Lake Bryan alongside waterskiers and wakeboarders. The Key West–style resort, located just east of Disney World, allows families and friends to glimpse local wildlife as they skim scenic shorelines and chase picturesque settings at an aquatic reservoir as vast and secluded as Bigfoot's bathtub. The resort's alighted tiki torches and palm trees that border its tiki bar and pavilion attract groups for company picnics or private events such as weddings and parties, during which revelers can partake in watersports, dance to reggae, or watch a fire-dancing show.
