  • City Tee Time
    From the seascapes of Pebble Beach Golf Links to the narrow fairways of Pinehurst No. 2, golfers can play some of the world's most famous courses in City Tee Time's golf simulator. The courses come to life on the 12-foot screen that golfers pelt with real golf balls launched by real clubs (City Tee time rents out clubs for no additional charge). During rounds, golfers can adjust shots and game-management strategies by referring to a system of 688 independent sensors that records the trajectory of each shot. Golfers can also adjust a number of variables before each round, such as electing to play in calm, breezy, or windy conditions and on hard, soft, or lava greens. City Tee Time also boasts a short-game training area and digital practice modules, which let golfers scrutinize their swings and vestigial tails with video-replay technology. While practicing their stroke, guests can keep track of live sporting events on City Tee Time's HD TVs, and those holding team building events or client meetings can stay abreast of work responsibilities with the facility's complimentary WiFi.

  • Gabe Rios Golf
    Class A PGA member Gabe Rios understands that the more someone wants to succeed at golf, the harder it is to concentrate on making incremental but essential improvements. By fostering a relaxed atmosphere within his indoor golf studio, he helps his students work out their goals while keeping the game stress-free and fun. Players take their cuts inside a hitting bay fitted with a Foresight launch monitor, V1 Golf video analysis technology, and two televisions. This tech arsenal allows them to watch replays of their swing mechanics in real time and receive feedback on ball flight statistics. Meanwhile, Gabe—himself an avid golfer since the age of six with a degree in professional golf management—looks on from his director’s chair, doling out helpful tips and inventing playing scenarios, such as a plugged ball or a putter face covered in honey.

  • Divvy Bikes
    Chicagoans may have noticed the city looking a little bluer lately. That's not due to seasonal gloom. This blue is reminiscent of the sky on a sunny day—the kind that invites a leisurely bike ride around town on one of Divvy's blue-painted cycles. There are currently more than 3,000 of them cruising the streets and parked at 300 solar-powered, touch-screen-equipped stations, which make up Chicago's still-expanding but already highly popular bike-share program. Getting in on the action is simple. Purchasing a 24-hour pass or an annual membership lets you unlock any bike at any Divvy station. After adjusting its seat to fit your height and the number of streamers you want to tie to the seat post, it's ready to take for a ride—perhaps along the Lakefront Trail, to work, or on an adventure with friends. If your trip lasts less than 30 minutes, you won't pay anything extra. For longer jaunts, you can pay an overtime fee or just re-dock your bike at any station and take out another one. (Stations have twice as many docking spots as bikes, so you should never have trouble finding a parking space.) Annual members can pick up accessories such as helmets with gear discounts at a wide range of bike shops, or just feel extra-special with perks at participating restaurants and other businesses. The cheery blue bikes themselves are designed for smooth city riding. An internal gear system means there's no chain to snag pant legs or skirt hems, and a front rack relieves shoulders of purses and bags. Flashing front and rear lights and a bell ensure that other road and path users know that you are rolling through. Groupon Guide to Chicago A First Timer's Guide to Divvy Biking Most Divvy rides go smoothly, but sometimes you?ll hit a bump along the way. Be prepared with these tips and tricks for bike-share newbies.

At 3rd Coast Cycles, only the owner's expert hands will touch your bicycle. Which means 25 years of experience will get your bike running perfectly. We will even give you maintenance training while we work. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Brick-n-mortar shops are something people don't have the time or money for.

What do you love most about your job? I am passionate about being everything that people cannot find in most bike shops. I enjoy sharing my love of bikes and expertise, while giving my customers white glove one-on-one attention that they deserve. I also enjoy finding them the best deals on replacement parts and accessories. What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? I love when people tell me that they have reconnected with an old bike they thought was ready for the dumpster. Many bikes are never tuned or assembled right the day they were purchased. Im always thrilled to give people the full experience they paid for when they bought their bike.

  • Iron Cycles
    The exposed-brick walls of Iron Cycles speak to the straightforwardness of its employees, who prefer to focus on riding, not attitude. This judgment-free approach leads to unbiased treatment for every cycle. The staffers treat well-worn heirlooms with the same degree of care and dignity as they do snazzy titanium builds or a custom-crafted commuter. Perhaps their respect for bike diversity stems in part from their disparate cycling backgrounds: founder Brandon is an off-road racer, Ben was a bike messenger, and Steve has more than 25 years of both pedaling and mechanic experience. Regardless of the bike brand or model, each of the shop’s services adheres to the mission of safer, savvier trips. Repairs address basic adjustments as well as complete overhauls, furnishing customers with new saddles, kickstands, and even handmade tires imported from overseas. The staffers oversee fitting sessions that fine-tune parts to suit the bike's function and the owner's body type. They can also build custom cycles that correspond to clients' goals, whether they want a frame that can hit high speeds or wheels that can store several decks of playing cards at once.
