I KNOW it's a few months away, but my Mum asked me today what I wanted for Christmas! She then laughed at me that instead of last year's perfume and fabulous green lame heels (both of which I've thoroughly enjoyed wearing this year) I asked for a luminous yellow Altura waterproof and some padded shorts. I even suggested inner tubes as stocking fillers. It made me realise how much I've changed with my bike addiction this year. I'm also trying to work out who might be kind enough to give me yellow Ortleib panniers. So what's everyone else asking for? Or am I just too early?
