A Warm Christmas Message

Postby AUbicycles » Tue Dec 14, 2010 10:37 pm

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

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.

+1 Have a great Christmas people.

And there will be 4 new bikes in our house this year, adding a balance bike for my 2 yr old into the mix and replacing 3 girls bikes for the other 3 girls as they really have outgrown them.

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 8)

Merry Christmas to all - here's to a great 2011.

Who says I ride in traffic??? Though the 24th of January is when it becomes illegal to ride on the footpath...

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 )

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:
