Mustering up the courage to ride a bike in this city requires taking baby steps; thankfully, BB&B will help you get started on the right foot. The two-year-old shop rents out its fleet of three-speed foldable bikes (full day $40, half day $25)—they’re easier to schlep around, according to assistant manager Ryan Dausch. If you’re in the market for your own two-wheeler, the shop also sells bicycles built from recycled steel frames ($200–$500), along with a small selection of new rides ($350–$800) from companies like Torker. You can stock up on bike gear like helmets ($45), and if your fixie happens to be stolen at some point, post an ad for your missing cycle for free on the shop’s Stolen Bike Registry, located on its website. So far, only one bike has been found because of the registry, “but we still consider it a success,” says Dausch.
