Tis the season

The holidays are fast approaching. If you live in Portland and have yet to get a Christmas tree you can actually get one delivered by bike to your door. Trees by Bike is a small group of folks from PDX in their second year of using pedal power to get Christmas trees to folks who don’t feel like tying a tree down to their car.

In Sydney, Australia a shopping center makes it a yearly tradition to make a Christmas tree out of recycled materials. This year they decided to use bicycle parts. We think the resulting bicycle tree is pretty stunning. You can read about the project and see more photos here.

And our hometown of Madison, WI is hosting its inaugural Santa Rampage Ride tomorrow – Saturday, December 18. For the uninitiated it’s a pub crawl on bikes with riders dressed as Santa Claus or some other holiday inspired outfits. More info on Madison’s ride can be found here. Milwaukee had their version of the ride last weekend – here’s a good recap.

Happy Holidays!
