The staff at Cain Park Bicycle stocks bikes and bike accessories for pedal pushers of all stripes. Acquire an adult-oriented velocipede such as the Bianchi C2C Via Nirone 7 2300 ($650), or teach a tot about the liberating loneliness of the open road with a Kazam Kid's balance bike ($75).

An avid cyclist, the owner of Spin Bike Shop helms a staff of certified mechanics and professional racers. Together, they keep their shelves stocked with bikes for all seasons and activities: cyclocross races, road riding, triathlons, mountain trails, and moon jumping. Inside, shoppers can peruse cycles from big-name brands such as Specialized, BMC, Ridley, and Santa Cruz. Mechanics perform a slew of services—such as fittings, repairs, demo-bike rides, and rentals. Staff members also teach classes on how to make basic roadside repairs, perform complete tune-ups, or use a bike frame to fend off an agitated mountain lion. When the staffers aren’t wrenching on bikes, they’re hosting events and welcoming cyclists and triathletes to join their teams and clubs.

Knowledgeable staff members match customers to perfectly fitting skis, boards, and boots, and a fleet of Hobie kayaks and glistening powered speed and fishing boats opens up lakes and rivers for fun-filled voyages of exploration.

Throughout a golf-teaching career that spans more than two decades, Greg Jones has taken everyone from inner-city students to PGA professionals under his wing and showed them how to properly swing the golf club. Greg takes a natural approach to the game by helping pupils develop a comfortable swing that fits their style of play, rather than instructing students to mimic the swing of a PGA professional or legally adopt an Iron Byron. In addition to his excellence on the course, Greg also has a keen eye for identifying quality instructors. That knack for recognizing innate talent is what recently led him to welcome two new instructors to the academy's faculty. A well-known juniors coach, LPGA trainer Pam Stefanik brought glory to the Highland High School golf team during a recent string of four consecutive state championship appearances. Meanwhile, when he wasn't adding length to his already impressive 456-yard drive, distance expert Frank Campitelli helped clients add yards to their own drives with a training system that he designed and built himself. Now, the trio helps students add well-rounded depth to their games. Regardless of whether the lesson is for juniors or adults, private or in a small-group setting, the three break techniques down into their basic components, making it easier to develop a repeatable game both on the course and on the range.
Inside Kent Cycle, rows of handpicked, name-brand bikes from Surly, All-City, and Torker idle atop sleek hardwood floors, hungry for the chance to feel pavement beneath their tires. Elsewhere in the shop, mechanics keep mounts riding smoothly with regular tune-ups, and riding gear such as gloves, messenger bags, and long-sleeve jackets keep torsos free of moisture and safe from road debris and juggling pins lobbed by unicycle gangs.
