The past twelve months have been extraordinary in so many ways. One of the good ways, at least for active commuting, was mild weather. An early snow storm in October had me rushing to get the fatgirl tuned up for winter, then it warmed up again and barely called for the fat tires before Christmas. Now it's barely mid-March, yet after several days of mostly bone dry pavement, I started to feel sheepish pushing Bullwinkle around the city, so I switched back to the Skyline today. It is still mid-March though, so I'm anticipating the fatgirl will probably come back again for a few days before spring is here to stay.
