Christmas Mole 2009
So Christmas is upon us. It’s so refreshing to be able to say that when you’re running you’re own website, rather than have to couch things in PC language such as ‘the Holiday season’!

That aside, I’ll content myself with saying I hope all our riders and readers get everything they’ve wished for in their Christmas stockings and if it’s bike related, let us know!

It’s been a good year for the Moles, of which more next week in the traditional annual round-up articles. We’re greatly indebted to everyone who’s made this website what it is these past months. I hope you can find time to pay us a visit but more importantly, get out there on your bike and ride!

Merry Christmas and see you on the trails…


About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Nice one Matt, well put.

    Happy new year to you, all Moles and Femoles. I am also in the James camp with the eating and drinking some MORE!!

    Swinley would be good for the New Year, how about Sunday 4th Jan, any takers? I have a 6 mile loop of Crowthorne Woods we could put in to the ride.

    See you next year.

    Matt – surely this is what you meant to say:

    Dear Moles,

    Best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most joyous traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, but with respect for the religious persuasion of others who choose to practice their own religion as well as those who choose not to practice a religion at all.


    a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions have helped make our society great, without regard to the race, creed, color, religious, or sexual preferences of the wishes.

    (Disclaimer: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and no responsibility for any unintended emotional stress these greetings may bring to those not caught up in the holiday spirit.)
