A solid internship can lead all sorts of places in this town, from the seat of power, to eventually a job if you took it in the seat from the dude in power. For a bike shop sprung from the intern position: Bicycle Space.
Just soft-opened, Bicycle Space is a green-walled mecca of pedal purveyance, offering bikes, gear, and repairs/custom jobs out of a former auto body shop, all helmed by a former City Bikes owner (...and serviced by half of its former staff) who's been in the game since an 8th grade bikeshop internship in 1976, back when handlebars all came with matching muttonchops. They're pushing a range of cycle types, from "city style" urban cruisers like an upright, big-fender'd Felt Cafe 8 and a wide-tired, internal geared Felt Cyclocross, to utility bikes like the burly Kona Ute, with two saddlebag-like waterproof vinyl panniers advertised to make "carrying stuff on your bike a breeze", though carrying Maxim's a whooole other story. Because it used to be good. They've also got more-niche two-wheelers, including racers like the full-carbon, Garmin GPS-equipped Felt AR-5, mountain bikes such as the durable Kona Nunu hardtail with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and the ingenious line of Brompton folding two-wheelers, whose full-sized frames can be packed down into the size of a briefcase, priming them to star in Transformers 4: Revenge of the Fallen... Off Your Weird Folding Bike.
To get you in the spirit, they'll be hosting large group rides every weekend (starting this Saturday), which'll range in difficulty, as well as length from 10 to 40+ miles, which'll wear you out more than internships. Just internships.
