The crew at Columbus Cyclery and Go Bike It puts two-wheel rides on the road with bike sales, rentals, and a service-and-repairs shop. The authorized KHS, Raleigh, and G2C dealer stocks an expansive inventory of new and used bikes, available in both adult- and pint-sized versions. By the hour or the day, they rent out sturdy hybrids, race bikes, and tandems, with add-ons such as baby seats and trailers available. Should bikes fall victim to any mechanical mishaps or run-ins from wild tricycles, the service-and-repair shop fixes them up with services such as tune-ups, brake and gear adjustments, and tire changes.
B-cycle operates much like a car-sharing service, allowing members and non-members to rent bikes when they need them and return them to the same or any other station. Because B-cycle encourages short trips throughout the city, only jaunts lasting less than an hour are covered with your membership; however, you can extend your pedaling for $2.50 for each additional half hour. From now until October 31, bikes will be available at many of the city's popular sightseeing locations, allowing fun-savvy wayfarers, visitors, and new residents to gander at Chicago's stately skyscrapers and overbig pizzas, all while reducing carbon emissions.
Bay City Bike serves as the brick-and-mortar trailhead for bikers looking to cruise through the scenic streets and notable sites of San Francisco and the Bay Area. Cyclists can ask staffers for directions to a number of scenic routes, including a path that crosses the Golden Gate Bridge and crosses into Sausalito, mountain-bike trails through the Marin Headlands, or tours of historic locales such as the Palace of Fine Arts or the famed phone booth known for letting people teleport out of Alcatraz.
Thanks to Bay Area Ski Bus, getting from point A to point B never felts so good. Its shuttle buses, outfitted with modern conveniences such as video systems, usher passengers to and from local ski resorts, negating their need to worry over travel plans or convince the troll under their bed to return their car keys. Provided meals, snacks, and beverages keep both hunger and thirst at bay, and lift tickets dispensed upon arrival get skiers straight to the slopes. When the faraway ski destinations of Colorado or Val d'Isère entice travelers away from home, Bay Area Ski Bus grows wings to match. Its guides handle every detail of the adventure, from flights and shuttle arrangements to lodging and lift tickets.
