Doug's Giant Anthem mountain bike in New ZealandCC's World Travelers 
February was international travel month here at Century Cycles! Doug from our Peninsula store took a three-week vacation to New Zealand and the Cook Islands, which also included a 9-day mountain bike tour of New Zealand's backcountry on his Giant Anthem (shown at left). You can check out more pictures from his adventure on his Flickr site.
Scott recently returned from the annual Heron Council meeting, which is an advisory panel of Raleigh Bicycles' top 25 dealers. This year's meeting took place in China, and included a tour of some of Raleigh's manufacturing facilities there. Look for pictures and a report on our blog or a future edition of the eNewsletter.
