Ho!Ho!Ho!......Can't imagine what new "issues", interests, shared pleasures, personal achievements, cycling problems/concerns/questions-to-be-resolved will arise next year......but I've had one heck of a nice ride here at BF this year and look forward to more.

Merry Christmas to each and everyone!

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Denver - and to all the rest of my fellow 50+ forum members! Y'all have made the past year a better one for me. I hope I can return the favor for 2006.

All the Best!

Merry Christmas to all. We're struggling in San Diego with our 80 degrees temperatures today and tomorrow, but somehow we'll soldier on. I want to thank each and every one of you for helping me SO much this year with my new passion, cycling. Because of this board (and a little self determination) I became a cyclist in 2005. Thanks for all the advice, encouragement, stories, and laughs. You all are terrific!

Probably no ride today, but I'm just 127 miles shy of 1,400 for the year (which began June 5th for me in terms of cycling), so I hope to get some quality miles on Christmas after the kids leave to be with their mom, and I have the place to myself. With this weather, should be a fun ride -- and the traffic should be nearly non-existent by comparison.

I love cycling, and I love being part of that community of people who are out there doing something physical -- whether that be cycling, jogging, walking, tai chi, roller blading, swimming, you name it. After so many years of being a spectator, it feels soooooo good to be a participant. And, in the final analysis, it doesn't matter whether I reach this goal or that goal (although they do help motivate me!). What matters is that I'm out there, riding, having fun, and doing something good for my body.

Yea!

So, forgive me running off at the mouth, but once again, Merry Christmas, or Happy Channukah, or just plain Happy Holidays.

Merry Christmas to all.

Haven't ridden much with the snow and extra work.

Looking forward to a lot of ridding in 06

I'd stick to being the Mascot as you have fallen down on the santa bit, or did you forget? I did not have the gloves under the tree this morning

I think you've forgotten a couple of naughty incidents over the past year. No need to spill the beans in public, but you know what they are. Try harder next year and we'll see about the gloves.
