    Dear Santa

    What is in your letter to Santa that is bike related.

    I asked him for two things, guess which one will be under my tree.

    If you've been good then the jersey would look great if you're on a shiny new road bike. You don't want that recumbent.

    If you've been bad then you'll get this.

    Don't want to give up the road bike just want the recumbent to add to the stable.

    I asked Santa for a new helmet. I don't know that I REALLY need one - not that mine is damaged or anything but its three years old & maybe newer technology would be a little better. Plus after rolling around in the back of my car for a while; who knows what potential little cracks their may be developing. And I really couldn't come up with anything else.

    Right now - I really want some warmer weather. It is just too darn cold presently...

    Porter20, I agree warmer weather would be a good thing.

    Where in Orlando do you do most of your riding?

    I'm still trying to decide if I want to ask Santa for a mtn bike. Never owned one and just can't decide.

    Yes, just bring me weather that doesn't freeze my face and make the ends of my fingers hurt.
    Oh, and a Nuvinci N360 hub.

    As you can see I kinda limited to 2 biles. Unless I want to keep one in the shed with the lawnmower. I don't think the bike would like that. Its so filthy out there I'd have to clean the bike before each ride.

    Where in Orlando do you do most of your riding?
    I normally ride in Windemere & Clermont. Although I have recently moved to a different part of town & may add the Saturday Lakemont ride to my schedule do to being closer.
