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 in perfect working order with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward merchandise or a bike tune-up at Golden Bear Bikes in Broomfield.
Golden Bear Bikes is an outdoor sporting store that caters to myriad biking needs––housing a bundle of bike apparel, tools, and accessories, as well as offering various tune-up services. Rainy-day riders can shield themselves from cloud tears and exploding soy-sauce packets with the water-resistant Bontrager Clearly Seen rain shell ($34.99), and bodybuilding bikers can comfortably curl their pedal-propelled road ponies with a pair of Gore Bike Wear Countdown Summer lady gloves ($39.99). A quick tune-up ($55) adjusts the front and rear brakes and derailleurs, lubricates the cables and drivetrain, checks the ball bearings, and ensures cycles roll smoothly over inconveniently placed birthday cakes.
