Landry’s Bicycles

Bike lanes are popping up everywhere, but two-wheeled travel is still the underdog in this town. Thankfully, Landry’s is positioned to mainstream the biking lifestyle. The shop features a well-rounded selection of commuter, racing, and kids’ models, and there are four convenient locations (critical when you’re running on oatmeal rather than gas). Best of all, each Landry’s store is staffed with cycling enthusiasts who’ll happily shepherd you through decisions big (road bike? hybrid?) and small (U-lock or old-fashioned chain?).
