Dear readers,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us here at BikePortland.

Michael, Juli (my better half who holds down the accounting side of the business and supports my blogging/riding habit) and I hope everyone is enjoying this festive time of year.

With both Michael and I taking time off and traveling in this next week or two, posts here on the Front Page to be less frequent than usual. We’ve still got stories to share, and we’ll cover big news if it happens, but this is the one time of year when things slow way down in the bike news world and we plan to take full advantage.

Stay tuned toward the end of this week for some year-in-review stories where we’ll look back at 2013 — and look ahead to the new year.

Best regards,

— Jonathan

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael

    Jonathan, Michael and Juli — Happy Holidays, and thanks for all you do throughout the year to cover our two-wheeled life. I’ll “arrogantly” predict that 2014 will be your best yet!
