I'd have hoped he at least upgraded to an Xtracycle or Big Dummy by now. Though with the population growth, he might need a Bikes at Work trailer or a Bakfiet.

That was back in the day. Santa not only brought the presents, he brought the frickin' Christmas tree! On a fixie bike! Now he has a sleigh as big as a Cadillac and "no room" for trees....

Due to my work schedule, I had to give up my favorite Yule tradition this year. I have always done a ride at midnight on Christmas Eve, around the city to look at the lights. It would have been a cold ride this year...I think it's about seven degrees above zero right now. Still, I'm sorry to miss it this year.

Merry Christmas to all and/or Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas to everyone! I didn't do a bike ride, but did go for a walk around my parents neighborhood with some of the family to see the lights. We also walked to the Christmas Eve mass. Heading out in a bit to meet my bride for lunch with her side of the family. She had to work but was able to get a longish layover in a nearby city.

Here is my favorite Christmas picture so far this year...
