Currently on my wishlist is a 40 hour work week, or at the very least two days in a row off. OH and a week of getting a full 8 hours sleep.
I haven't been injured but I have been working 48-72 hours a week (mostly 72) on 3rd shift for the last 3 months. I have reached my saturation point and I just want to go back to normal and sleep like a human being again. The good news is next weekend I get 2 days off and I change to 2nd shift (afternoons, 3-11pm)
The plan on my big weekend is a trip to costco, and to take the road bike off the trainer and replace the deflated front tube with the bent valve.
I would have taken the bike off the trainer weeks ago if it hadn't been for this work schedule, my new boyfriend, and new boyfriend's car breaking down at work (his shift is an hour offset from mine and we have been riding together making the day that much longer for both of us).

Me too! I'm improving, but yesterday when I asked my PT about bicycling, I got the Evil Eye!

Ugh. I hope you're back to wishing for frivolous things soon.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

I am coveting a new white DiamondBack city bike that is the mall on Ramstein Air Base. I have had my Hrbrid for 7 years and my racing bike for 5 years. A nice new shiny bike douns good. I have the special pedals on both of my bikes. I will just take them on my ricaing bike for now for the new bike.


And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. Colossians 3:17

Blessings,

Christina, I have the clipless pedals that I think you are talking about, and they are AWESOME! The clip is inset in the shoe so that the shoes can be worn anywhere, and they are MUCH easier to get out of than the older clipless pedals. So far I have managed to get out of them when I spaced the need until I was all but dead stopped, and haven't fallen once. I think I'm going to put them on my road bike this year, too.

Since I already saved up and bought my new road bike about a month ago, now I am "needing" to get more bike accessories.

Bike shoes--very excited I just ordered some Pearl/Izumis with an Amazon Gift card
Sport sunglasses--ditto on this-just ordered from Amazon
Bike computer
Tire pump
Bike lock
Increase my speed/endurance so I can hang with the faster riders in my bike club (including my boyfriend!). The new road bike should be a good start.
Think I might aim for a half-century this year and work my way up!

I think one thing I might have on my wish list are new clip-less pedals, but these are special because they have a wider base.
Have a great time on my trip in June to Cape Cod (how can I not, I will be biking!).
Have more people to ride with me this year.
Sign up for Cross Fit.
Tackle the Barnard hill...7 miles of ascension...I have made it 3/4 of the way.
Sign up with my friend Stuart for the P2P 25 miler (I am taking it easy this year, not doing a century).
I also like the completing 50 miles a week, that would be awesome!

I also asked for a bike stand this year! And the Zackee's turn signal gloves, cycling shoe covers, a heart rate monitor, and a jogging leash. Which is not really for cycling, but since I still want to triathlon again next year would be a good thing.

I asked my dad for a bike stand so I can work on the bikes without having them try to roll away all the time, or prop them up on my car. I also need some luggage racks for the hybrid if I want to roll with my cousins on their bike trip next year.

HillSlug I like the sound of that blue custom bike. Electric blue or something like that is my favorite color (my fiesta is called Blue Flame).

If Santa wants to blow the budget, I'd like a Waterford lugged steel frame bicycle (deep blue with stainless lugs) with an Ultrega grupo. Or maybe a 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP in Envy (dark green) - convertible, of course.

We're exchanging minimal presents this year because we already bought a bunch of stuff (a new road bike and camera for the Hubs, tons of workout & triathlon related stuff for me) and we have medical bills hanging over our heads. So even though no one is going to give me a $7000 bicycle or a $20000 car, I'm going to have a joyous and peaceful holiday. Even if I have to spend it with the in-laws.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

Now, I'm not Christian, but I do love me some Christmas! For me, it's a winter festival of lights and feasting and gatherings of family and friends.

And presents! So what's on your wish list this year? Particularly, what's on your wish list that's cycling related?
