    Last year I ended up replacing both tubes after blasting through some thorns 😳 so hoping not to repeat that.

    Probably just a local XC blast, don’t wanna risk the hungover stressed out idiots on the road.

    Depends how tense it gets between my wife and my mother. Might need to take kids out to check over their new bikes….

    I was going to suggest that the roads are quiet on Xmas day (hence last year I went for a unicycle ride on roads I wouldn’t normally ride that on), but then I remembered I did once have an altercation with a small bloke in a car on Xmas day – actually the only time I’ve ever had somebody step out of a car. I was told that I didn’t help that I laughed at him when I saw how little he was and wanting to square up.

    GF and I are spending it on our own this year and will probably pop over to Leith Hill for a couple of hours.

    I wish, staying with the whole family, having left my family of bikes 50 miles away. There may be blood spilled this festive period. πŸ‘Ώ

    Hopefully get out on the road bike with the GF- the joys of having Xmas by ourselves πŸ™‚

    Half hoping to get a lap of Swinley Forest bike trail tomorrow morning before my Sister’s tribe surfaces. I have my bike. I live in hope.

    Will be down the FOD and will be able to park in the proper car park for a change πŸ˜†

    Absolutely πŸ™‚ I’ll be out on the road bike before dawn – I find it the most serene and reflective ride of the year, so have made a habit of it in recent times. Probably only be out for an hour, but I’ve been looking forward to it for yonks. Which given my general meh feeling towards Christmas is no bad effort.

    I know what you mean MCTD, it’s like walking along a tightrope.
    Hope to get out for an hour in the morning for a bimble around Delamere.

    Yup. Vowed to at least cycle the 20 mile ‘hilly by our standards’ route for a lunchtime beer in Oxford.
    And 20 miles to the folks’ house on Boxing Day.

    Yup!

    Road ride up the scenic Conwy valley in the morning on my own – a time to just appreciate how lucky I am to be healthy and live in such a beautiful place.

    Mountain biking fun in the afternoon with my BF – playing around on Conwy mountain and keeping warm with some mulled wine πŸ™‚

    Sometimes it’s good to not fit in with the ‘norm’!

    Whatever you’re doing, wishing you all a happy Christmas πŸ™‚

    Usually go out for a local blast, but this year I’m loaded with a cold that I’m hoping to shift for a bigger ride on the 27th so think it’s best to remain indoors and relax.

    Out on local trails whilst wending my way to Huddersfield Crematorium with the wife – Respects paid to the dear departed before coming home and counting our blessings by entertaining the rest.

    Yep – short 2 hour blast on the roadie before breakfast, then we’ll crack on with present opening when my sister and her fiancΓ© arrive. Quietest day of the year, it’s positively a pleasure to be out on the road πŸ™‚

    Defo. Dalby 1st thing then pop across to Swaledale for an 18 miler from Reeth, inc Fremington, Langthwaite, The Moon, Gunnerside & so on…

    Not.
