In memory of John Moss

The Century Cycles family lost one of our longest and most beloved members recently. John Moss passed away on July 4th, 2019. John was the father of Century Cycles co-founder Lois Moss, and remained fast friends with Century Cycles owner Scott Cowan. You can read his obituary here.

John took up bicycling after retirement, and, never to do anything halfway, he likely pedaled more miles over his lifetime than our whole staff combined. He biked across the USA at least five times, including a trip through the Yukon that ended in Anchorage, Alaska. His final long-distance trip with his daughter Lois was across North Dakota in 2014.

We join John's family and friends in mourning John and treasuring our many shared memories. Please keep them in your thoughts.

A memorial fund has been set up to honor John Moss with a sponsored map panel on the Lewis & Clark Trail, a bicycling route from Illinois to the Oregon coast maintained by the Adventure Cycling Association. You can make a donation at:

My the wind always be at your back, John!
