We bid a fond adieu to Pacific Grove bike shop Winning Wheels, family owned and operated for 38 years by the Chavez family. They will be greatly missed! Keep an ear to the ground about the possibility of Winning Wheels continuing under new ownership. Meanwhile, to find other options, start with Bicycling Monterey’s list of Monterey County’s local bike shops.

International Buzz

Climate: Too hot, too cold, too windy, too wet, too dry—too much change in the Earth’s climate, and already too many crisis-level impacts on children and other living things! For the next seven generations, please heed the call of climate activists. And as Jill Warren, chief executive of the European Cyclists’ Federation, said: “The potential for cycling (and walking) to help address climate change is huge and within our grasp.”
