    Fat trike

    Does this count? First real snow of the year has arrived, but my bike hasn't.

    No, I actually found it in a bike shop in the Idaho farm country. Made by some welders somewhere in their spare time and marketed under the name Dirt King. Recently handed down from big sister, and just now big enough to ride it! I just realized that this might be one of the reasons that fat bikes now look "normal" to me, while every other bike looks anemic.

    Got some nice snow last night:

    Mostly the only bike tracks I saw were my own from 2 days ago.

    I remember years ago when I could go out after several days and still find my old tracks. That does not happen in Anchorage anymore. It only takes a couple of hours on most trails no matter what time of day before tracks are covered. I miss when winter bikes were such a novelty but it sure is cool to be able to ride packed singletrack soon after a snowfall.

    Cool bike, Jordy. Black on white, very nice!!!

    We need a snow dump like that up north to cover all the ice from our last freezing rain episode. The riding is still pretty sketchy. What's the red cannister thingie?

    Plenty snow today. Started out ok, and then the snow began to pile on



    Diverted to the local bike shop in the hope of bludging a cup of tea. They'd closed up and gone sledging



    The bike got heavier and heavier...



    or maybe I was getting knackered

    A simple ride took hours longer than normal, and by the time I had the high point in sight it was getting dark.



    Needless to say I hadn't brought my lights.

    A few hours later after struggling through a track where the foliage had all collapsed onto the path under a deep layer of snow - I wasn't doing much cycling there - I saw the light



    It was all downhill from there

    The annual beer ride overnighter featured two Pugsleys and three ordinary bikes this time. Only the Pugsleys could ride the snow covered boardwalks. My log contains a small write-up about the outing.

    In some places I realised that if anything went wrong no-one would find me until spring. And all within a few miles from home.

    I'm pretty cautious, but I'm going to carry more gear from now on - a lesson learned.

    BTW what pressures are you running now?

    Waiting for sunrise...

    at 11 am. Days sure are short this time of the year. Finally got an inch of snow to cover the ice. Rideable, barely, without studs.

    Hey velobike, the previous post was not intended as a reply. I was enviously enjoying the pics of your pug in fresh snow and posted mine in the wrong place.

    The rumors that you've heard about a fatbike race in Wisconsin are true. Unfortunately you have to wait a few more days for the details....but the date is going to be January 15th.

    The wife can't ride these days so it wasn't going to be fair to wake her up early to see me going to ride...I'm thinking on going alone one day though...maybe taking a whole day to explore?

    Picture a track covered with deep snow, the trees bending over from the load of snow on the branches, a freezing mist making the detail on the lower slopes white out, the sun shining on a fatbike positioned to best advantage, but not obscuring the mountain range or the clear blue sky. A perfect shot.

    Now picture the idiot who forgot to put the battery back in his camera....

    On that note, no pictures yet, but picture clear -12F temps, squeaky hardpack snow, and over 2 hours of singletrack known as winter night riding in Anchorage. COLD!
