    Fat Bike Race/Festival/Advocacy symposium, 2013. And some BicyclArt content!

    Check it out, the Fat Bikers are getting ORGANIZED...


    So, this Summit/Partay was held in Island park over this last weekend.
    Lots going on, I will post more pics and details of discussion topics, etc, as they become available!



    Good blog here from the major Domo, Scott Fitzgerald:
    Fitzgerald’s Bicycles - Cycling, People, Planet




    In the interim, if you interested in Fat Biking and advocacy, this was the place to be. Lots of bigwigs from Salsa, Surly, Bikes Belong, QBP, IMBA, some as yet unnamed fork manufacturers (yes, you read that right), the FS, and other entities. Even two congressional research folks.
    Good stuff. Interesting how what we all have learned form the successes and failures of trail advocacy, legitimacy, community economic development, and other factors, and how those lessons are being applied to this 'new' sport.

    I think this 'conference' (as well as party!) was pivotal, and holy carp, you should have seen the swag for the raffle.
    Seriously.
    Ridiculous.

    Anyhoo, check it out.

    Makes a nice frame for Jay Petervary's bike!
