A Lonebiker History of Late November Dry Rides


 I think this is by far the most memorable late November year we have had since this blog was started back in 2009. It was a late November as well but nothing close to this year. This was typed out on November 22 and there is zero snow in the forecast so I am wondering if I will not need to pull out the fat bike when I get off work. 

I was wondering about other years when it was dry and the fun and nimble bikes kept going. So I came up with a list of every year when I started actual winter riding or if mentioned it snowed in a beer review or music post. 

It looks like 2016 is the year to beat for late snow falls. Can 2023 just do it!?
