eNewsletter - November 15, 2005

Hello again from Century Cycles! Here's a glance at what is contained in this edition of the eNewsletter:

1. Final Weekend at the Solon Clearance Center
2. Bicycling in the News
3. CAMBA Trail Building Days

We hope that you find the information in this and future editions of the eNewsletter useful.


1. Final Weekend at the Solon Clearance Center

It has been our pleasure to serve our customers in Solon and the surrounding communities for the past several years. However, conditions have forced us to decide to close this location. Our final weekend of operation will be Friday, November 18 through Sunday, November 20.

That leaves plenty of time to take advantage of the best deals ever on bicycles, clothing galore, and assorted accessories at the Solon Clearance Center. If it's still there on Sunday, make us an offer!!!

We will be open in Solon from 10am-6pm on Friday and Saturday, and 12 noon to 5pm on Sunday. Hope to see you there, and we will continue to provide the same great products and service that you have come to expect in our Medina, Peninsula, and Rocky River stores!

2. Bicycling in the News

As a testament to the ever-increasing popularity of bicycling in the US, the recent Reader's Poll Special Issue of Men's Journal magazine (December 2005) featured several cycling-related articles.

In response to the poll question "What physical feat would you most like to accomplish?" the highest number of those polled said "Ride cross-country on a bicycle" (39.9%). To show a first-hand perspective of this adventure, the magazine tapped veteran touring cyclist and author Joe Kurmaskie (a.k.a. The Metal Cowboy) to chronicle his cross-country trek with his two sons. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Joe is also well-known by many Cleveland-area cycling fans, and is the author of two books of essays about his cycling adventures, Metal Cowboy and Riding Outside the Lines. You can read the article on-line here:

The magazine's list of the top 20 adventure movies of all time includes three cycling-related films, such as the classics "Breaking Away" and "A Sunday in Hell":

Also included in the latest issue of the magazine is a travel guide to mountain biking in Moab, Utah, a review of the latest book on Lance Armstrong, and gear reviews.


3. CAMBA Trail Building Days

Ever wonder who builds and maintains the mountain bike trails that you ride? It's not state or county park staff, or any other paid employees. It's dedicated volunteers, who just want to make sure that they have a place to ride, just like you!

Do your part by helping out the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA) during one of their upcoming Trail Building Days at the Atchison Property or West Branch State Park. For a complete schedule, as well as directions and other information, go to the CAMBA web site at:

Click on the "Trail Building Schedule" link from the menu on the left. No experience is necessary. Prizes will be awarded!
