    Fattening up for the winter

    Seized by a sudden urge to get a Fat Bike, now is the time to go burn some calories. Hubby won't let me commute unless there is sufficient snow and our measly 1-3" forcast this week will not suffice. I have two questions:
    1. Where should I take my fatty?
    2. Will there be any fat bike races this winter?

    Tell your hubby to mind his own business, and ride that fatty everywhere! Looks great.

    Your hubby needs to STFU.

    Ride that bike wherever and whenever it wants to be ridden!

    January seems so far away to say once more, "Hey, honey watch this!"

    I might be living in a dog house soon...
