The nimble-fingered neighborhood cycle nurturers at Dash Bicycle Shop repair and restore two-wheelers to tip-top shape before storage season. Roll in your lifeless stallion to a knowledgeable attendant for a thorough basic tune-up. Both wobbly wheels will be removed to undergo cleaning, a hub adjustment, and a truing process to increase pedal-pumping efficiency and ease momentum retention. Surgical adjustments are made to the bottom bracket, headset, and the tension of the brakes, ensuring riders can stop on a dime, pick it up, and buy a Chiclet without ever dismounting. Derailleurs are inspected, adjusted, and lightly cleaned to transform sticky gears into smooth shifters. A lube-up of the chain, cables, and key pivot points on the brakes and derailleurs combats creaky rides, and torque is checked on all bolts to maximize not falling off. After a gussy-up of the frame with a light cleaning, a tire inflation gives the bike cushy pillows on which to dream fondly of next year's smoothed-over potholes.

Few fitness organizations would place as much importance on a potluck as a pushup, but Friends in Motion is different. Instead of creating weight-loss programs that consist of strict drills and dieting, the staff designs plans that are built on a foundation of support and social interactions. Though it might seem cliché, the effectiveness is no joke. Team members bond with their teammates during interactive classes and outdoor team-building activities, increasing the chances that they'll return for more calorie-burning workouts.
