Arrowhead Bicycles is stationed only a few pedals away from the Southern Tier bicycle route that stretches from Florida to California, issuing customers a tantalizing challenge on their way out the door. The store itself is a hub that local and visiting cyclists swing into for new accessories, an impromptu tune-up, or simply an air-conditioned oasis where they can rest their feet, refill their water bottles, and hop online to check weather alerts and their favorite cycling blogs. Customers in the market for a new steed choose from models by industry mainstays such as Fuji and Scott, which were made for mountain, road, ramp, and spacious-condo travel. Meanwhile, the store’s stable of skilled technicians breathes new life into serviceable bikes with tune-ups, repairs, installations, and washes.

To the untrained eye, CrossFit classes can look completely foreign. Students of all athletic abilities work out side by side, using not standard gym machines, but sandbags, heavy ropes, and their own body weight as equipment. And that's the beauty of CrossFit—it relies on nontraditional techniques to get students in the best shape of their lives. All exercises are scaled to match each student's ability level, allowing a diverse group of students to form bonds as they each work to their own limit. Classes are led by expert trainers and change every day.
