While sunlight pours through Smart Cycles's window-lined walls, metal spokes gleam and fan out toward multi-textured tires hitched to a coterie of bicycles. For 20 years, the shop has stocked bikes by brands such as Bianchi, Torelli, and Giant. Frames roll across the floor with help from the store's knowledgeable staff members, each of whom calls on their own cycling experience to acquaint customers with their hybrid, mountain, road, BMX and other flavors of two-wheeled transport. Smart Cycles also styles human saddles in handmade Italian bicycles, such as il Massimo, imported from overseas.Racks of accessories such as jerseys, helmets, and locks ensure on- and off-road safety with reflective and knock-resistant materials. Smart Cycles also repairs and tunes up bikes, from simple derailleur adjustments to complete overhauls, and proffers complimentary safety checks to pinpoint any impending problems or motorcycle identity crises.

Baseball is alive all year-round at All Star Indoor Batting Range Baseball & Softball Academy. Started in 1991 by three baseball fans—Kevin and Brian Gilroy and Frank Rizzo—the facility gives players the chance to practice no matter how many inches of snow or packs of rabid umpires are flurrying outside. The 15,000-square-foot sports haven boasts seven tunnel cages for practicing all aspects of the game. Other elements, such as stadium benches and 7,000 square feet of artificial turf, give the academy the feel of an indoor diamond. To help players take their skills to the next level, the academy also offers private and semiprivate lessons, and maintains a pro shop stocked with essential gear.
Personal Touch Pools & Ponds’ technicians care for backyard bodies of water in every season. In the summer, they open pools and fire up filtration systems. In the fall, they infuse pools with special winterizing chemicals and cover them until spring. And year-round they provide regular maintenance—cleaning the pool and adjusting water chemistry—and perform repairs, renovations, and new construction of custom ponds and in-ground pools. Personal Touch specializes in seamlessly replacing worn vinyl pool liners to prevent leaks; it also converts traditional swimming holes into eco-friendly saltwater pools so you can expand your hermit-crab breeding operation.
