I took a year off from bike commuting in 2009, for various reasons. It was a welcome change of pace. This month I'm buying a new car, losing a housemate, getting a new apartment, acquiring new interests. I just changed out a flat-prone tube in my commuter, and it needs a new cassette and chain. In 2010 I'm ready to get back on the skinnies. Of course, with new every year the traffic is worse than ever.
Hey, I might even be around here again.
