Streetsblog Wishes You a Big Red Bicycle Holiday

We’re getting ready to enjoy a holiday staycation filled with cookie parties, home projects, and baby presents with packaging that’s way more fun than the gift itself. We wish you, dear reader, the happiest of holidays and most auspicious of new years.

Before checking out for the holidays, tune in tomorrow morning for the annual Streetsie awards poll, where we will ask for your input as we sum up 2012. Until then, we leave you with this adorable music video, from DC/NYC bicycle-lovers Nora and One Left.

  • Thanks for posting Tanya/Streetblog.  Happy holiday to you and all your readers!!
