The holidays are a great time for festivities on two wheels, it turns out. We know of plenty here in our back yard in New England, but our friends across North America have turned us on to plenty of other bike-themed happenings in their cities, too. We've collected many of them below for you, and we hope that your 2015 holiday season is a happy, healthy, and bikey one.
Seattle has a location problem. It's sandwiched between Bicycle World darlings Portland and Vancouver, both of whom have deservedly hogged the lion's share of what precious little press space there is for bicycles in North American press. Right in between these two lies relatively ho-hum Seattle, ever the bridesmaid, never the bride. Arriving downtown (by train, naturally), one would be forgiven for failing to lift a finger to challenge that viewpoint, really. It remind me very much of the most buttoned-down parts of downtown Boston, but with massive, weapons-grade, "this is not cool" hills. Picture traffic, few trees, drunken Seahawks fans, concrete, and 1st gear hills that go on for 20 blocks.
