    Black Fly Challenge NY

    I just signed up for the annual Black Fly Challenge in Inlet NY. It's a 48 mile race mostly on dirt roads and fire roads with a small amount of single track. Not technical but a lot of steep climbing. I will do it on my 9-0-7. I am looking to get a large contingent of fellow fat riders to do it with me kind of as a fat team event. I think it would be very cool if ten or twenty fatty's showed up. The race is Saturday June 8th.

    Actually, about 38 miles, includes about 12 miles of asphalt, and no singletrack. Lot of fun last year, but I only saw 1 fat bike. this year the route goes the opposite direction and at the end there will be a mile of singletrack.

    That was me last year on my Pugsley; did it with Black Floyds pumped up to about 25 psi. Rolled fast and smooth over everything and beat my best time. Of course the conditions in the Plains were the best I've ever seen; 2011 was the worst. I'll be fat again this year.
