When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.

Anyone who has ever been kicked out of a nightclub for trying to ride in on their bike didn?t really do anything wrong, they just went to the wrong place. The instructors at bike2thebeat are as versed in DJ'ing as they are in leading stationary-cycling classes, hosting their workouts within a mirrored studio that emanates a nightclub-style ambiance. Once students are comfortably situated atop their stationary velocipede of choice, they dim the can lights and raise the black lights to bring T-shirts, towels, and linen-clad ghosts to glowing fruition. Then they start spinning thumping tunes, swirling multicolored beams around the room and shouting out exercises and dance-like moves to create an intense, high-energy cycling routine. Routines vary according to each instructor's unique style, but they all deliver a calorie-burning cardiovascular workout. Guests have access to changing rooms, showers, and complimentary towels before and after every workout.
