Aside from the piercing, finely tuned whir, all that an onlooker standing on the side of a winding NorCal highway may discern is a vivid streak of crimson. If that streak were to be slowed down considerably, he might also recognize the famed Ducati insignia on the side of a bright red motorcycle as it rushes past—as well as the wildly ecstatic grin on the face of the rider. That grin is thanks to Red Bike Tours USA, a motorcycle rental company that deals exclusively in lightning-fast Ducatis and white-knuckle thrills. The company rents out the keys to the Italian super-bikes for a day at a time, and it rents out the bikes, too. Motorcyclists can opt for a Ducati Multistrada 1200 S and take it cruising over the San Francisco Bay Bridge, or go with a 1199 Panigale S and point its Oz Magnesium wheels in the direction of the snowy slopes of Tahoe. A 1200 GT, Sport Classic, and 20th Anniversary Monster 796 round out the fleet of high-performance machines.

Anything you might need between the front and back wheel can likely be found at Bob's Cycle Center. The shop carries bicycles for all terrains and riding styles, from road bikes to mountain bikes and cruisers from brands such as Trek, Marin, and Electra. They also carry a wide selection of parts?like brakes, handlebars, and chains?as well as tires, tubes, and wheels. And then there are the repair technicians: expert mechanics who can coax maximum performance out of your bike by giving it a tune-up or a heartfelt lecture on the importance of flossing between its spokes. Bob's Cycle Center carries all of this for bikes, but they have riders covered too. Bike-owners can peruse a selection of outerwear, jerseys, shorts, and bib tights from Bontrager, as well as helmets, gloves, and shoes.

Folsom Bike’s experienced bicycle technicians rehabilitate cycles and pair horseless riders with trusty two-wheeled rentals. During basic tune-ups, pedal physicians pamper asphalt steeds from headset to hub, remedying aches from popping wheelies with derailleur, brake, and bottom-bracket adjustments and ensuring optimal tire pressure and bolt safety. Creaky cables relax under soothing lubes, and newly trued wheels make for rides smoother than a piggyback from a manta ray. During performance tune-ups, gear gurus raise the velocipedal ante with fresh cables, housings, and frame polish before resurfacing brake pads, overhauling brackets, and weaving handlebar streamers into aerodynamic cornrows. Both basic and performance tune-ups are typically complete within 24 hours.
