Happy Solstice! Get Your Last Minute Gifts! Welcome Back Jacob!

Happy Winter Solstice! Here is a little something for you on this fine, brisk (world not ending) day!

 

 The Shortest Day by Susan Cooper

So the shortest day came, and the year died,
And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
Came people singing, dancing,
To drive the dark away.
They lighted candles in the winter trees;
They hung their homes with evergreen;
They burned beseeching fires all night long
To keep the year alive,
And when the new year's sunshine blazed awake
They shouted, reveling.
Through all the frosty ages you can hear them
Echoing behind us - Listen!!
All the long echoes sing the same delight,
This shortest day,
As promise wakens in the sleeping land:
They carol, fest, give thanks,
And dearly love their friends,
And hope for peace.
And so do we, here, now,
This year and every year.
Welcome Yule!!



It's not to late to get the perfect gift for your special someone, family member, friend, or dog sitter. With all the dirt and grime these winter storms have been kicking up, our bikes have been taking a beating! A great way to spread the holiday cheer is to give your bike or other bikes in the family circle some attention. Give the gift of a bike tune up. It keeps you out on the road or trails, cycling smoothly and safely. If you just aren't sure what the cyclist in your life needs, get them a gift card! That way they can personalize their gift to meet their every need.


We also want to welcome back to Port Townsend Jacob and Christine! We are very glad to have them back!!!
