Great idea from David Schloss at BikeHugger: International “Win for Susan” day, in memory of Susan Nelson,’s wife, who died recently from cancer:

“This happens to be the day of the Philly Livestrong Challenge. Wear your Fat Cyclist gear, LiveStrong bracelet or clothing, homemade signs, or other item to signify your personal fight against cancer and take a picture of yourself. Next, upload the picture via twitter and post it on the 23rd with the tag #win4susan
While you’re at it, go to the Livestrong foundation and make a donation in Susan’s name.

Hate to see Oregon Cycling magazine shut down. It did some good in-depth reporting, particularly on legal issues involving cycling. We’re with BikePortland in hoping it will revive under new owners, and maintain the high standard of quality.

Bicycle Retailer: Four new Mountain Bike Hall of Fame inductees, including Anne Caroline Chaussen, the best female racer in the sport’s history.

A popular Leavenworth mountain-biking route, Freund Canyon, has been closed while they try to find a cougar that encountered a mountain biker. From The Seattle Times: “Wenatchee River Ranger District wildlife biologist Don Youkey says the biker did the right thing by stopping, putting his bike between himself and the cougar and then yelling.”
