Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone who reads this a blessed and happy Christmas and a wonderful 2010.

Under the tree for me this year was a handmade scrapbook chronicling my year in bikes, from our rental bikes in Bruges to the bike-buying frenzy that has only recently slowed.  My lovely wife also procured a 1945 edition of "50 Years of Schwinn-Built Bicycles -- The Story of the Bicycle and Its Contribution To Our Way of Life, 1895-1945."  It's a beautiful book with hand-drawn illustrations of the early Schwinn models and a thorough history of the company at Peoria and Lake streets in Chicago.

Pix to follow soon.


  1. Merry Christmas Mike to you and yours from all of us here in wet NC. ;-)

    We are still opening presents as the family trickles in from around the world. Christmas does last 12 days you know! ;-)

    And as Greg Lake so poignantly put it:

    I wish you a hopeful christmas
    I wish you a brave new year
    All anguish pain and sadness
    Leave your heart and let your road be clear...


  2. Thanks, Aaron! I hope you enjoy the season and good times with family!
