Dear Santa

Dear Santa:

Remember that pink bike I was eyeballing a few months ago? No problem because I've included a picture of it here (see above).

I found this beautiful vintage bike- touched up with all this great pink fabulousness. I mentioned to someone who says that they know you and they said they would get word to you. I would really, really like a vintage blue (or silver!) bike with pink wheels and tires and pink tape around the handlebars.

I'm just a little worried since I haven't seen your, um, little helper working on a bike these past few months and, well, Christmas is right around the corner. If this may have slipped your mind- no worries! You could always, say, start working on such a bike and get it to me for Valentine's Day.

Just sayin.

I hope that the pay-back I dished out for being toilet papered camping this summer isn't influencing your decision this year. Or that the extra canned good that I snuck into Misty's backpack on my last hike hasn't made you think twice about that pink bike.

Anyway looking forward to X-mas and a few days off,

Betty

It's taken a while but I'm finally starting to get on with my fixie now that my commute doesn't involve any BIG downhills (up hills are no problem). Big 32mm tyre so that I can remain seated through pot-holes have also helped a lot. (I can't pedal at 120+rpm while stood up!).

Saying that, thanks to the fixie I nearly crashed into Santa last week. He was on the back of a lorry in his sleigh (no reindeer). He threw me some sweets to me as I rode along behind. As I tried to catch the sweets I forgot to keep pedalling. The bike firmly reminded me to keep pedalling just as both my hands were in the air trying to catch the sweets.

Ahhhhh! Red Bike- what a run in you almost had with Santa! His Christmasy charm (and candy!) can be quite distracting ;)

I do really wish I had an extra winter bike on hand though. All the salt that they dump on the roads here makes me hesitate to take my bikes out on it.
