    The fatties were great in Hilton, loads of fun. But you had to man/woman handle them.

    It was quite the contrast however, the day before I was riding my 21-22 lb carbon hardtail, the 37 lb fattie was a little more sluggish!

    it appears you've been working on your technical skills lately. what's up with that?

    Thank you dog walkers. Last night took a evening spin just as a the leading storm edge hit us and it was definitely a wee bit crunchy under the snow.


    This morning chickened out and drove the car in to work... it would have been easier to ride the 10 minutes then have driven.

    The fatbikes are so freaking fun and were surprisingly awesome at Hilton... once I got used to the handling. It rolled easily over the rock and climbed pretty well too, considering.

    That said, the goal will be riding them in snow, wherever it may be!

    Thanks to everyone who came out. Great ride, great company.

    Definitely felt the advantages of the fatbike today, conditions were great for it. Lots of local foot traffic that provide a solid base to get out. I even went out for another 1.5 hours this afternoon!

    Thanks the guys for organizing and leading the ride, and waiting up for my slow ass. I had a great time out there even though it was more hike than bike for me. And there were some epic wipeouts, including a couple of my own.

    Went back out today and did essentially the same route (with minor tweaks), even with the new 3-4 cm of snow, the extra 24 hours of walkers allowed me to clean essentially all the climbs. Though I did have a couple comical dismounts into the fluffy white stuff.

    I think this area has huge potential for fatbikes to make riding for everyone truly year around!

    @CptSydor, we should organize a fatbike ride. If youre interested we have some fatbikers here in Brantford and we have about 40km+ of riding. Let me know if youre interested.
