News Roundup: Good Luck, Lois!

Everyone at Century Cycles wishes the very best to Walk + Roll founder/director and bicycling advocate Lois Moss, who is moving to Portland, Oregon. In announcing her departure, she leaves us with some parting words about how to make Northeast Ohio better for cyclists. (Walk + Roll)

Further proof Lois is moving to America's land of milk and honey for bicyclists? In Portland, she can even have her Christmas tree delivered by bicycle! (Trees By Bike)

Real or fake: Thomas Edison, Trick Cyclist. (You Tube)

The Ethicist is asked "Is it OK to take the kids by bike?" (New York Times)

The 2011 Redbud Ride in Kentucky has begun online registration, $5 off through the holiday season. Nice pacifier they got there on their home page, for the people who complain about the ride's steep hills. (Redbud Ride)

New York City aims to "shame" bike jerks. (The NY Post)

Remember: We have a holiday sale that goes a couple days past 12/25, for all those after-Christmas shoppers. (Century Cycles)

Finally, in honor of this special time of year, we thank the Adventure Cycling Association (which has gift memberships and other cool stuff for sale). They shared the following at the start of their most recent newsletter, and we're happy to share it with all of you:

"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season. The Christians called it ‘Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!' " -- Dave Barry
