The top three most efficient modes of human-powered transportation are (in no particular order): Flintstone cars, bicycles, and a palanquin carried by the various monarchs you've conquered and overthrown. Make sure the most feasible of these is properly equipped with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 toward bikes and biking accessories at Albrights Cycling & Fitness in Mishawaka.
The pedal pushers at Albrights Cycling & Fitness have been retailing and custom fitting a sporty selection of bicycles and bicycling accessories for 97 years. Store snacks, bags, and friendly extraterrestrials in a bike basket ($16–$55), or nab a baby seat, perfect for securely transporting tots or smaller, more fragile baby seats ($100+). Lights ($11–$130), helmets ($30–$130), and locks ($9–$65) are also on hand to help ensure a safe ride, and tire pumps will keep a sensitive cycle’s road donuts and their fragile egos from deflating midride ($30+).
While outfitting their trendy tandems, visitors anticipating a new set of two-wheels in the future can peruse the sizable selection of quality spokes. Imagine yourself gliding about town on an Electra Hawaii 1 cruiser, equipped with whitewall tires, a springer saddle, and speed-regulated air conditioning ($399.99). The Haro 100.3 BMX bike facilitates bar spins, grinds, and flaming-handrail jumps ($264.99), while the 21-speed Trek 7000 bike's lightweight aluminum frame supplies sleek speed across roads, trails, and hardening concrete ($409.99). All new bikes purchased at Albrights Cycling & Fitness are assembled and tested by professional bicycle mechanics and come with a free first tune-up, generally due after a few weeks of riding.
