Go for a bike ride!  Don’t let your bike collect dust in your hallway.  Call MyBike – Southie’s new one-stop bike shop.  They offer a concierge service.  One of the MyBike helpful staff members will come directly to you and whisk off your broken bike in the back of their truck.  How awesome is that?  Within a few days, you’ll have your new and improved bike back ready for a ride.  What’s better than taking a nice bike ride along the beach – especially M Street beach on a hot day!  
 Fee for concierge service is $10 each way.  If you have your own truck, you can drop off directly to the good people of MyBike too.  MyBike, 516 East Second Street 617-202-9720 (mybikeonline.com)
