Oh boy. For once my Christmas involved far more food and alcohol than is safe, and far less cycling or any other exercise than I would like. I hopped on the bike for the first 5 mile commute since mid Dec and really felt the difference.
Do people come out of the "party season" in worse or...
Just wondering what CC's favourite Christmas carols are. Do you folks like the traditional, well-known or more obscure? Or carols from other countries?
Three of my favourites are:
Jesus Christ the Apple Tree
Patrzcie Bracia Jeno

...I am not a fan of Christmas, but thought I'd make an attempt at being festive for a change.
I am growing a Santa Claus beard, even got the grey to make it look authentic :snowball:
This is the longest I've ever lasted not shaving, usually got fed up by now ^_^
Anyone else struggle to...

Who'll be out riding on Christmas Day?
I might not be able to get out this year, due to family commitments, but will try my best to!
Last few years have been esyto sneak out for a few miles, so I can't complain..
Boxing Day should be OK though :bicycle:
I am sure you have all been very good boys and girls this year so you will no doubt be rewarded with a visit from the big man and his bulging sack ...
What are you hoping that he will deliver ?
As I am going to Merbel for a skiing holiday on the 23rd, for me Christmas has come early in the form...
For at least the past 10 years we have always had real trees, and buy them from our local grower, Maurice Mandry. Generally it's a PITA that takes at least an hour to find one that is the right shape, not too spikey, not too tall, but tall enough, and has to be the right shade of green. By the...
Yes that word and it's only September.But i must let you all know about this fab jersey i stumbled on this morning There is another but i prefer this,Santa Pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaasssssse.I have been a really good boy this year.[
50 or 100+ years ago when most people weren't very well off financially and there was also a lot less selection in what they could buy for most of the year, the traditional Christmas dinner and all the trimmings and presents was probably something to look forward to as a break in the middle of...
I approached Christmas with a determination to smash the Festive 500 and get loads of miles in over Christmas. Guess what, it didn't happen! A combination of bad weather, enjoying the warmth of the house too much and being busy. I've done about 60 km so far and have just been lazing around over...
Here's mine. I wanted a copy for ages, but it went out of print and used copies were selling for silly money. At last, a second edition has been printed (well, two years ago - been on my wish list for a while!).

Just collected a Concorde frame with some pantotastic parts. Not that common in a late 80s bike, the suggestion is that the...
For the first time in literally decades we haven't hosted the family at our house.
My lovely daughter and her husband provided a terrific Christmas dinner and me and mrs Colly have just sat there and been provided for.
I could get used to this.
Merry Christmas everyone. :snowball:
Thanks for your amazing generosity and continued support through 2017.
I hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing break and get to spend time doing the things you enjoy with the people you love. :cheers: or :cuppa:
Take care, be safe, and I look forward to...
