Cycle Logic stays stocked with all the tools to keep the wheels working, from hand pumps ($28+) to pedals ($14+), ensuring that rolling experiences are always as smooth as the wheel's inventor, Courey, intended them to be.

Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $9.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (a $3.59 value).

Kids on Course Golf Academy wants to spread the golf gospel to as many youngsters as possible, which is why it offers flexible and accessible lessons for children as young as 3. Parents can rest easy knowing their kids are participating in afterschool lessons at their local school under the watchful eyes of instructors instead of running amok in the neighborhood or playing croquet. When school's out of session, young players can hone their skills in holiday or summer clinics. Parents who want to improve their game can also take part in the clinics, teaming up with anyone aged 7 and older.
During The Glo Run, participants must do two things at once: run a 5K and glow in the dark. It's not as hard as it sounds. For the nighttime run, they can bring or purchase glow T-shirts, sunglasses, and accessories, which are activated by the black lights lining the route. For an added touch of festivity, DJs spin along the way, and a post-run dance party kicks off at the finish line.
Shady Oaks Golf Club fosters club-flailing fun at its nine-hole, par 3 course and outdoor driving range. Golfers can continue their quest for the elusive hole-in-one or put disobedient drivers in a time-out at the nine-hole par 3 course, where short holes facilitate a fast-paced round of golf that is surmountable for players of all abilities. Upon their arrival, players receive two large buckets of driving range balls to loosen up their swings or use as healthy meal replacements for fried chicken. The course is open seven days a week, including all holidays, to whet the link-looping appetite of golf devotees.
