Holiday Cheer

Each year no matter how much a I prep, I never quite feel ready for the holiday season. This year, though, with the temperatures plunging to wintry lows by Thanksgiving and snow already falling a few times, it actually feels like the holidays in Chicago.

Even my bike is dressed up in the holiday spirit.

My bike really has inspired me this year — some of my best gift-giving ideas come to me while I’m riding my bike to and from work. If only I could sync those thoughts and ideas with an automatic thought recorder so that when I get to my destination I haven’t already forgotten most of them. Today I managed to remember those last-minute ideas and jot them down before they fleeted away. (And if you’re still looking for some gift ideas, don’t forget to check out our Holiday Gift Guide.)

However you celebrate, may this season bring you good cheer both on and off your bike(s).

How is your bike a part of your holiday season?

    Got to LOVE decorating the bike for the holidays or recycling old bike parts to make lovely decorations:

    I took my bike on a couple of holiday rides:

    And, I ran across an 8mm home movie of my brother getting his first bike at Christmas in the early 60s.

    I’m sorry to say that he went over to the dark side and found golf instead of cycling in his dotage, but my youngest brother and I are still on two wheels.
