    I just purchased my first fat bike last week. I now find myself trying to get out of work so I can go ride. It doesn't help that I live right next to Chugach state park and can ride from my house to get to the trails in less than 5 minutes.

    My 10-year-old son got a fat bike for his birthday too. We went to Portage Glacier last weekend. You couldn't ask for a better day out there. His only complaint is that the ride was too easy.

    VAST snowmobile trails in central VT last weekend before the Noreaster hit. They needed that! Trails were a mix of ice, leaves and crunchy snow.

    Sadly it looks like we are done with snow unless a spring storm pops up this year. It's not spring is horrible by any means.

    I'm a little afraid your ride is going to roll off into the water - though, maybe fatties float because of those big tires?!

    Yesterday may be been the last real snow ride in western NY. Conditions were all over the place, from magic crust to snow drift to mud. A fine enough ride, albeit slow going. But at least some good photo opportunities presented themselves.

    First, without the bike, because it a pretty decent photo. The Rochester Lower Falls Park:

    Obligatory with the bike shot:

    Pretty warm actually, in the 20s and maybe closer to the 30s. It was low teens when I started, but heading uphill from Hope, AK, the valley gets a lot of sun and quickly I had to roll back my pogies and my feet were sweltering. Up in the pass (pictured) there was a little bit of wind, but again not enough to make it cold. I had a puffy jacket to throw on for the descent over my normal soft shell, but I quickly determined this was WAY too hot for the day and I was able to do most of the 20 mile descent with my pogies still rolled up. This is a pretty huge contrast to most descents where your core temp just drops like a rock and I have to put on additional clothing and change up stuff a bunch. Even though there's around 3700' of climbing/descent, there are long stretches of pretty level stuff where even though you are going "down", you have to pedal constantly and you generate some heat, so I was pleasantly surprised. The only possible issue I thought I'd run into was finishing too late, since I started around 11:15 at the trailhead. When I was almost done at 5:30pm I saw one guy heading up that said he was going to camp overnight, no sleeping bag, looked like he had a mat and maybe a bivy, but the temps are still dropping way down overnight, it was 2 degrees earlier in the day at the bottom, so hopefully he did alright. Even though my bike wasn't set up for camping, it seemed like I had way more gear for contingencies than this guy, although last night I just purchased a 406mhz PLB, even when prepared things can go wrong. With so much sunlight now though (well over 12hrs a day) things are going to start changing radically fast. The snow usually melts here at these altitudes faster than in the lower 48, because of the constant solar radiation. Gets to be a big mess of mud and slush, which is why it's nice to get as many rides in right now as possible!Daily fatbike pic thread-0155f1519d2fc7b1d735d68f4cc59f53580588f484.jpg

    It was forecast to rain at home so I went high as snow is well less wet than rain. Great decision. Beautiful day.

    In stark contrast to the beautiful photos of fat bikes in the snow that Jayem and TheNormsk recently posted, I offer this shot from last week of a fattie entering a desiccated canyon in the SoCal desert. No snow, just rock and sand (and warm temps).
