After inventing the wheel, humans had to invent the bicycle frame to keep their free-wheelers from running off with other early inventions like chisels and fire. Help keep wheels safe with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a one-month membership to Bike Dojo (an $89 value) and one-month of bike parking (a $30 value, a $119 total value).

Bike Dojo's well-oiled biking community and supportive gym helps to guide cyclists along avenues of healthy, green living and allow them to realize their full pedaling and fitness potential. Steered by avid cyclist and former BMX champion Rob Mylls, the cog-spinning community unites riders in professional classes and keeps them engaged with a multitude of indoor and outdoor balancing opportunities. Cyclists may study the schedule to embrace the day with an invigorating Sunrise Spin class or a simulated ride along digital vistas with Tacx virtual-reality trainers. After competing on a virtual Tour de France track or racing against a grandfather clock for self-esteem enhancement, riders may partake in guided outdoor rides through the city and mountain terrain before cruising to the tunes of hair gel’s most lucrative decade in Thursday evening '80s-themed spin classes. Before cycling, parents can drop-off kids at the on-site kids facility.
After building up a sweat, riders may take advantage of the facility’s showers, which are ideal for anyone heading to work or trying to conceal their bicycle fling from a jealous moped. Each class and ride is led by a cultivated cyclist who educates students about bike fundamentals, group-riding techniques, and simple bike maintenance.
The accommodating staff at Bike Dojo, a cycling gym founded by Rob Mylls, keeps the community active with two-wheeled activities ranging from indoor spin classes and kid-based ride programs. Schwinn indoor recreational bikes perch inside the studio space, beckoning exercisers of all levels to pedal their way through energetic classes that boost cardiovascular health and finally put Tour de France commemorative bike shorts to use. Bike Dojo memberships grants full access to the facility and every new member joining Bike Dojo contributes to a child in the community through Dojo's program, Project B.I.K.E., which donates a bike to a child for every new membership.
