Bike babes and boys: have a very Merry Christmas!

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights - Even The Bikes Are Lit

Barring the effects of climate change, winter should have now well and truly descended wherever you are in the world. We hope you’re keeping warm and brushing away any eyelash icicles. ¬†And you’ll be glad to hear we’re almost up to 400 challengers now.

On my ride this morning I spotted a beautiful husky going for a jog – while his owner rode alongside on a bicycle. Not sure how safe it is, but these days I’ve seen it all in Beijing’s bicycle lanes!

(Also awesome? The guy on the scooter carrying what looks like an entire pink furniture set.)

Keep sending in your photos of your rides, and we’d love to see videos too if you have them.

And have a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Stay tuned for more from us on the other side of the New Year :)

Love, Emily and Monica.
