News from Bicycles Network Australia and the Australian Cycling Forums
Dear fellow members and visitors,
From myself and the moderator team, we wish you a warm, wonderful and safe Christmas. Look out for yourself on the roads.
We know our rights on the road though be a bit happier, more relaxed and less assertive in traffic for a more pleasant ride.
As the holiday season kicks in with all of the associated emotions and feelings (including stress and boredom), lets keep this forum a happy place, a retreat where we are part of a community of personalities. Lets concentrate on what unites us. Lets respect one another. Lets enjoy cycling.
In planning is a major forum (software) update and a review of member requests and suggestions (for inclusion of features).
Thanks go out to all of the members who value the forums and help make it a good place.
Special thanks to the moderators who are essentially members and sacrifice time and emotion to help keep the forums running smoothly.
Adam from Websitemanagers has also put in a lot of time to support the site / forum, thank you.
Learn, Share, Love Cycling

Merry Xmas and stay safe over the holidays, whether it be on the bike or otherwise.
And the same back atya.
I thought perhaps a warm Christmas message (particularly in the West) might be "Jesus Christ it's hot!!!"
Good one for 2011.

Many people feel their lifestyle has a high price, but they're quite cool with that .. as long as somebody ELSE pays the price.
Oh noes!! Hope you have a great Chrissy despite not riding.
Merry Christmas you non-rego paying cycling nuts!!!! (me included )

No new bike for me. The lads turn. Time to hit the trails
Have a great one peoples. Remember now, don't drink and ride, you might spill some.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

No new bike for me, my last bike purchase was only 3 months ago.
But shiny new bits of kit to add to the fleet are sitting under the tree... I know this because I bought them
Merry Christmas to all - here's to a great 2011.
Merry christmas everybody.
I hope that santa brings everybody a new helmet . . . (fire extinguisher at the ready)

I'd like to echo Chris's sentiment for a warm Christmas to all those North of The Line. To everyone down under, have a cool one .
Where ever you spend it, may your Christmas be Peaceful and loving.

Yes, Merry Christmas to everyone as well.
Who says I ride in traffic??? Though the 24th of January is when it becomes illegal to ride on the footpath...
Happy holidays, all and thanks for your companionship in the past year.
Foreign shores beckon so I'm persona non grata on these foruims until mid-January.
All the best to you and yours and may your bar tape never scrape the bitumen.

P.S. Take care and keep safe out there folks.
I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to my friends and colleagues, but it is difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I met with my lawyer yesterday, and on his advice I wish to say the following :
Please accept with no obligation , implied or implicit , my best wishes for an environmentally conscious , socially responsible ,low stress , non addictive , gender neutral celebration of the summer solstice holiday practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious / secular persuasions and / or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all .
I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011 , but not without due respect for the calendar of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great ( not to imply that Australia is necessarily greater than any other country ) and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee .
By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms :
This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her / him or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. The wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher .
Best Regards ( without prejudice )

Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill.
Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day.
